The VSF was planted and 4 faithful showed up for an unofficial #ACESWild.  Might be time to make this #thang official.

The Conditions: 62 degrees Fahrenheit, 100% humidity.

The Thang: According to Wikipedia, which can be edited by anyone at anytime, meaning it is the most accurate reference in the world…

“Assignment to BUD/S is conditional on the SEAL Physical Screening Test (PST). Prospective trainees are expected to exceed the minimums. The minimum requirements are 500 yd (460 m) swim using breast or combat sidestroke in under 12:30 with a competitive time of 9:00 or less, at least 50 push-ups in 2 minutes with a competitive count of 90 or more, at least 50 sit-ups in 2 minutes with a competitive count of 85 or more, at least 10 pull-ups from a dead hang (no time limit) with a competitive count of 18 or more, run 1.5 mi (2.4 km) in running shorts and boots in under 10:30 with a competitive time of 9:30 or less

So we ran down to the little strip center at the corner of Augusta and Capers and began the PST, minus the swim and the pull-ups.  First we did 10 Hip Slappers DC.

Max merkins in 2:00.  YHC had 57, Mr. Winslow led the way with 70 something

Max big boy situps in 2:00.  YHC had 54, and again Mr. Winslow led the way, but I’m not sure how many.

Then we ran roughly a 1.5 mile loop.  We were all in somewhere between 10-11 minutes.  T-Claps again to Mr. Winslow.


Mosey back to the VSF.

10 minnows (side lunges) DC OYO.

10 merkins OYO.


Ye Olde Moleskine:

Welcome to #AcesWild, Mr. Winslow.  Good to have you, hope you make it a regular thing.

YHC was completely smoked and tired-legged after Monday and that PT test.  It was a good interval run though.  We had the time to add a mile to our distance, cobains on not being able to do so today.

Mr. Winslow won pax of the day, mainly because he had high #’s on every part of the PT test.  Latka was second.  Satisfry and myself made sure the other guys felt good.

It was fun to hear about Latka’s first post (he’s a Swamp Rabbit Original Redwood) and how he heard about F3, and how far he has come since then.  Everyone has an F3 story, they’re fun to share and hear.

Total mileage was 2.71.

Announcements: Let’s EH the hell out of people.  I haven’t named an FNG in a long time (except for at the Jackalope…speaking of which, have Wang, Cauliflower or Fake ID been back?).  F3 is not anywhere close to max penetration of Greenville.  Also how about a re-EH of existing pax that haven’t been back in 2015… Screech, Preppy, Aloha, Bed Bugs…

Prayer Requests: YHC’s in-laws, Latka’s grandmother, M Satisfry’s grandmother, Pledge is getting married this Saturday. Turbo Tax and a new 2.0.
