Excuse me for hijacking the F3Louisville site. But yours truly is obligated to post a BackBlast from this morning’s beatdown at the beach, and this is as good a spot as any.
Rolled in at 5:15 for my second post of this vacation week at the @F3GrandStrand #Timeshare post. Vacationing PAXs from across the country are invited to Q when in town, and it’s my turn today.
PAX: Burgundy, Barbie, Bling, Plan B, Tater (R), Talladega, and Retainer (GQ).
Mosey from Main Street to the beach. Trying to keep all exercises in increments of 17 or 34.
COP in the compacted, low tide sand. SSH (34), Grass Grabbers (17), Imperial Walkers (17), Hammy stretch, Plank Jacks (17).
Thang 1: Short Dora. Partner up. Partner 1 runs a suicide while Partner 2 does exercises. 100 Merkins, 200 Lunges, 200 Squats.
Thang 2: Three groups. Group 1 at the water’s edge has mountain climbers AMRAP, plank jacks AMRAP until relieved. Group 2 at the top of the beach near entrance, has dips AMRAP and incline merkins AMRAP on the lifeguard tower. Group 3 runs uphill through loose sand from Group 1 to relieve Group 2. Rinse, repeat 6x.
Thang 3: Low on time, so half of a merkin bomb, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
Mosey back to Main Street. Mary of butterfly kicks and Weezy Jeffersons, 10x IC (10 count hold on the last one, just for fun).
Then the real thang. Guest Qs at the Timeshare must earn their badge, pictured below. In honor of a local HIM who passed away recently at the age of 34, Guest Qs must complete 34 burpees. I knew this was coming, and I was not looking forward to it. I had hoped to avoid burpees on this trip altogether. But I got it done. In sets of 12, 10, 3, 3, 3, 3. Earned the badge. Barely.
Announcements: shared (again) news of the Louisville #TeamVince challenge. Details on the F3Louisville site. Bling shared news of the local burpee challenge to raise money for a local HIM going through an expensive adoption. Details on the F3Grandstrand site.
COT with a thanks to the locals and other vacationing HIMs. Closed with the Our Father in unison.
