IronPAXChallenge WK 4 the Crucible BO BB 8/28/18

After seeing the WO for Week 4 of the IronPAXChallenge I knew it was going to be a B*$%H. Never the less several other PAX & myself committed ourselves to this challenge so we were going to see it through to completion. A more accurate name for the IronPAXChallenge would be “YouVsYouChallenge” or “YouVsTheClockChallenge” because that’s what every single WO was. Here’s how I would describe the WOs of the IronPAXChallenge:

  • Hard
  • Miserable
  • Challenging
  • Out of my comfort zone
  • Gratifying
  • Worth it

When I reflect on the F3 WOs I’ve posted at the ones I remember the most I’d describe like this. 

  • McAfee at the Silo when we started out with Dora, 150 Burpees.
  • Kilo’s 1-year Postversary at the Bridge when Bear Crawled from the fountains to the bridge.
  • McAfee at the Silo when we started out with Dora, 150 Burpees.
  • Huggies at the Bridge when we celebrated the 4th of July with the Army Physical Fitness Test.
  • The Convergence 1 year Anniversary of F3Louisville when Nugget, Glauc, Vincent, & OJ took turns dishing out a beating.

I’ve experienced countless other beat downs, but looking at my active calories from WOs these are some of the highest counts. I will now add all 4 of these WOs to that file in my memory bank. Moving on to who was there & what we did.

PAX

  1. Abacus
  2. Catfish
  3. Dunphy 
  4. Fergie
  5. Huggies 
  6. Nino (QIC)
  7. Pork Chop 
  8. Thumbtack

Weather: 73 degrees with 88% humidity

Gearlander: Black Nike tank, Grey patterned Nike Shorts, Green Bubbles Buff, & Grey Reebok’s with neon yellow laces

I gave the PAX the disclaimer that I am not a professional, each individual was there on their own free will, & to modify as needed. Hell, I didn’t even design the WO.

COP

  • Stretch on your own & get ready.

That was it, this is a timed WO so it was time to get after it. I walked through the WO below demonstrating exercises & explaining expectations of each exercise. Each PAX was competing against the clock so I used an app called “Stopwatch” that allows you to start multiple times instantaneously & be stopped individually. As each PAX was ready they started their individual timer  as they completed the WO they stopped their individual timer capturing their time.

With that I thanked the SkyQ, asked he hear our prayers both spoken & unspoken. I let these HIMs know I was proud of them for taking on this difficult challenge.

Nino out.
