Explorin' with Dora at #GoldenStrip

  • Workout Date - 05/19/2016
  • Q In Charge - Floppy Disc
  • The PAX - Gymboree (Respect), Commodore (WD, Respect), First Date (WB, Hate), Fred, Floppy Disc (YHC)
  • AO -

When you wake up at 0300 to lighting flashes and pouring rain, as the Q, you have 2 thoughts going through your head:

  1. We’re going to get wet on the post today.
  2. Crowd’s going to be small. Over/Under is 3.

After waking up at 0300, YHC almost #Fartsacked it. Shaking off the fog of sleep, YHC realized that the previous evening’s preparations of laying out the gear for this AM would pay off, and get me to the school on time.

Rolled up hot on 2 wheels at 0529 to be greeted by 4 faithful pax waiting for a Q.  Game time gents!


  • SSH x 25 IC – at this point @Gymboree mentioned that texts were traded with @ChurchLady, but alas, no Church this AM
  • MC x 15 IC
  • Mosey a lap around the parking lot to loosen up any muscles that might be needed.

THANG 1 – Dora 1,2,3

Instructions were given to partner up, but with 5, we had a Menage with @Gymboree, @Commodore, and @Fred. YHC and @FirstDate partnered for the other pair.

Feeling a need for a few miles as well as some exercise, so here’s what we had:

  • 100 Merkins
  • 200 BBSU -at this point, exercise was moved under the covered walkway #LookingForDryGround
  • 300 Squats
  • While P1 was exercising, P2 was instructed to run 1/2 lap of parking lot from light post back around to light post.

Thang 2 – Elevens

  • Start at near speed bump with 10 plank jacks
  • Run to far speed bump for 1 Freddy Mercury DC
  • Rinse and repeat dropping a rep of 1st exercise, and add to 2nd exercise

After all were done with Elevens, we planked up head to toe in a line for Bearcrawl Inchworm between speed bumps.

Back at dry ground it was time for Mary, so:


  • Jack the Ripper up to 5 (1 BBSU :4  Freddy Mercury)
  • Flutters IC x 15
  • Rosalita IC x 8




  • F3 Dads workout – this Sat 05/21 at 0815 Legacy Park.  Bring the kids for some fun, let the M’s have some peace
  • Dirtalope – Conestee Park 6/14. Lots of pain, lots of running trails, lots of good living.  Make plans to attend.  Read the Pre-blast here
  • This Sat 05/21 – one of our brothers @F3_JohnDenver needs a hand pulling out old carpet and linoleum in their new digs. Message from him:
    • Any help on Saturday will be very much appreciated! Plan on getting started around 9 am. No pressure. I know everyone has stuff going on. If you can make it bring gloves and a box cutter if you have one. Also any tools that would help with removing staples from plywood. Beer/water and pizza if you can make it. We’ll take any amount of help you can give. And don’t forget… My wife is 7 months pregnant! 205 Blue Ridge Dr in Greer.


  • Strong work by all the Pax this AM!  @FirstDate and @Fred are both #Beasts on the run and WO. #SettingThePace
  • @Gymboree and @Commodore took everything YHC had to offer, and crushed it. #Respect well earned!
  • With #HIM like these posting even when conditions aren’t ideal, it’s no wonder we keep coming back for more F3 – the workout is just the smallest piece.
  • Thanks for the push gents!  YHC needed it this AM just to keep up.
