Burpee Death March

  • Workout Date - 08/15/2019
  • Q In Charge - Road Trip
  • The PAX - Peek-A-Boo, Zebco, Beamer, Flo (R), Mac, Ms Potts, Hump Day, Church Lady (R), RT
  • AO - Golden Strip

Zero prerunners, zero ruckers and 9 Bright eyed and bushy tailed PAX showed up for a road trip on the wagon trail around the Golden Strip prairie.  The 3rd F was just finishing up as RT planted the flag.  Looking back, the flag should have been placed at half mast because we almost lost Peek-A-Boo.  Church Lady rolled in on time, probably because his new car has a GPS clock, but he still waited in the cabin to finish up some late night texts in hopes of missing the jumping jacks.  Instead YHC was instigating a standoff and not starting this WO until he found a spot in the circle.  But RT had a gift for him, no SSH…side bends or sit ups…you’re welcome Church.  Just as the scene was cleared, Beamer rolled in hotter than a $2 pistol and causing his Audi purr like a lion.  Probably another unscheduled pit stop at QT, so we’ll skip the details. Well, here is how it all went down…

MISSION AND DISCLAIMER: Be nice to people and don’t do stupid stuff

CONDITIONS: 75 degrees, thick and juicy and silicone parts were made for toys.

WARMUPS

  • Hillbilly – 4ct x20 IC
  • Windmill – 4ct x20 IC
  • Mt Climbers – 4 ct x10 IC
  • Merkins – x10
  • Mt Climbers – 4 ct x10 IC
  • Merkins – x10

Mosey to the track for further instructions.

  • Turn 1 – 20 Burpees, run to turn 2
  • Turn 2 – 19 Burpees, lunge walk to turn 3
  • Turn 3 – 18 Burpees, run to turn 3
  • Turn 4 – 17 Burpees, lunge walk to turn 3

That’s one lap.  Continue around the track dropping 1 rep at each turn, running the long sides, lunge walking the short sides until you run of reps…or time…or life.  “Any questions?”

An unenthusiastic Church Lady responded with a low hanging head, “noo”

Mac – “Geeze, what is wrong with you?”  Alright, no more questions.

Congratulations, you just did 210 burpees and 1.25 miles.  That’s a far cry from Beamer’s 365, but we’re not complaining.  Speaking of crying, Urban has left the conversation.  Speaking of complaining….Mumble chatter was at a minimum and some PAX performed asphalt star gazers, which is looking at the moonlight dance on the asphalt while on their belly.  TClaps for Hump Day for pushing to the extreme limits and getting it done while the remaining PAX died of Dysentery.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

17-18 AUG – F3 Dads Camp at Camp Thunderbird, Lake Wylie NC.  A few tickets are still available if you want in.  15 Swamp Rabbit PAX and 26-2.0’s will be there.

17 AUG – If you don’t go camping, then help Make Saturdays Great Again #MSGA.  Cheese Steak has the Q at PF.  It will be reasonably paced and balanced.  3rd F will likely follow.  Pre-run will also most likely be available.

20 AUG – Flo is bringing College Gameday by Nationwide to your city at GS.  Bring your sloppy body and wear your favorite college football shirt.  I’m just gonna bring trophies, but this would be a great time for our Gamecock brethren to go shirtless. #Sammy #ATM #Look Out Below #LiteBrite

24 AUG – F3 Greer Anniversary Convergence at The Station.  It is the Taj Mahal of the AOs.  If you have never been, do yourself a favor and go.

SEPT – Sign up for F3 IronPax.  See F3 Greenwood twitter for the link.  If you’re gonna post in September, you might as well sign up because it will be a featured workout each week.  It’s a virtual challenge where you submit your times/reps and will be ranked among all PAX as well as within.  See Padre if you want a patch for completion.  Either way it is a great way for the Silver PAX to bring down the Fresh Beat Band (Beamer, Ms Potts and Zebco) and regain some lost dignity.
