Thanks for letting me come back and lead a beatdown! Explore F3 outside of Knoxville if you get the chance. Learn something from other cities and try to leave some Knoxville flavor as well.

A few rounds in the octagon

THE SCENE: 48* and clear, perfect weather
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

High knees IC
BAC forward and reverse IC
Imperial squat walker IC
SSH IC
THA-THANG: Mosey out of the start point and towards L&N, opposite direction of the usual mosey.  Train horn gives the Q a good panic, as the route crosses the railroad tracks where cones and routine are set up.  Fortunately its just two engines which clear the tracks quickly and we continue our mosey into the Preacher lot.  Eight cones set up in a circle/octagon.  Exercises are mostly still on the cones, as follows:

  • Reverse flyes with rocks
  • Wide merkins
  • Squat jumps
  • American hammers on 4 count
  • Lion kings with CMU’s
  • Lunges on 2 count
  • 8 count bodybuilders
  • Heels to heaven

PAX split up to have groups of 2-3 at each cone.  16 reps of each exercise, then bear crawl to next cone moving in clockwise direction.  Once you arrive back at your original cone/exercise, run to the center of the octagon and plank it up (plank variations until all finish).  Q asks for someone to step into the middle and give one of their biggest fears.  Sneaky Pete steps up, and his fear is being misunderstood.  ALR.

Go back to original cone.  Repeat routine, this time only performing 8 reps of each exercise, and instead of bear crawling to next cone, run a lap around the octagon.  Again, plank in the middle when finished with routine and wait for the rest to finish.  Duggar steps up and admits one of his biggest fears is failure.  Which just happens to be QIC’s biggest fears, and would have been admitted at the end.  ALR. PAX grab cones and CMUs and begin mosey back to SP (dropping 4 CMUs just across the tracks for retrieval later).

Once back at SP, Q asks one more to tell a fear.  The Voice steps up and states letting someone down is his fear.  A.L.R.  Mary begins.

MARY:

18 PAX Strong: Reverb, Swanson, Sneaky Pete, Petey, Operation, Filter, Sipad, Duggar, Midas, The Voice, Cowbell, Cheesesteak, Jenner, Crawdad, Passport, Careless, Scope, Abort
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Fear.  We all have fears, and we have to deal with fear every day.  Fear isn’t necessarily bad, as fears of things have helped keep us alive up to this point in our lives.  However, constantly giving into fears makes us cowards.  Constantly ignoring fears would make us insane.  The key is to listen to our fears and decide whether to give into them or stand up and turn that fear or hardship into grace.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Mend House workout on Monday at 6.  Try to show up and support these men as they hopefully launch their own AO into F3.
