Pax then moseyed counter clockwise on the track just south of the parking lot.

The Thang

The Pax then broke off the path and left the park, to mosey to the East and through the neighborhood for the first time to Copperview Park (approx 1/2 mile away). Once at Copperview…

Started with 1 Burpee. Then rounds of 2, 3 and 4 Burpees.

After the 4th burpee, PAX did 20 body weight squats.  Then alternating between burpees and squats., with the burpee count going up one each round until 10, while after each round of burpees, 20 more squats.

Once we reached the top of the pyramid (10 burpees), we came back down the other side, 9-8–7 and so forth, continuing to do 20 Squats after each round of burpees. After the round of 4 burpees, the final squats were done and the final 3 rounds of burpees were completed.

The PAX then headed south and out the far entrance to the park, before circling back to Copper Beach just as time expired.

COT

Discussed…

  • Kingpin’s Cabin coming June 25th
  • The next Peak Bagger Hike is June 18th.
  • Recovering PAX: Chef B, Raging Cheetah, Butter Knife and Lockout
  • Trail run tomorrow at TTR

Great Effort today – the PAX tallied 100 IC SSH, 101 Burpees (counting one during Name a Rama), and 260 Squats!

Early in the workout, YHC shared an answer to “Why do you guys get up at 5:30am and workout?”

I have many answers, but one of them was evident after a recent interaction with my family.  One of my brothers missed the Zoom meeting due to a health scare, and my sister and other brother who did join the call are both battling their own health challenges.  I was reminded how different I am than my family at the moment. I’m strong, I’m healthy, and able to be there for those that need me and count on me. That means a lot to me. I don’t take it for granted. I’m grateful for my health and my F3 brothers that all push each other to get better each day. I’m also reminded that life and health are fragile. Let’s keep the pedal pressed down boys – we have people to lead and love well.

Until next time,

ThighMaster
