Q: Icy Hot
The Qic passed a large group of pre-runners who were running down E Halleck Street as he arrived early to set up the football field for the Thang.
The PAX was promptly welcomed at 700am by the Qic with the F3 mission statement, core principles, and the disclaimer. One FNG, Chuck, was present.
The PAX moseyed to an open field just to the west of the shelter for warm-a-rama.
Side Straddle Hops – 10 IC
Tappy Taps – 10 IC
Big Ones – 10 IC
Sun gods – 10 IC forward, 10 IC backwards
Windmills – 10 IC
The Pax continued a mosey to the west to another open field for the second part of warm-a-rama
Plank Jacks – 10 IC
Groiners – 12, because the Qic forgot what number he was ending on.
Mountain Climbers – 10 IC
Rinse and repeat one additional time.
The PAX continued towards the football field for the Pre-Thang.
The PAX utilized the field right outside the fence of the football field for the second go-round of the motivators the Qic attempted with semi-success at the Woodshed a week prior.
Full SSH, Half-arms SSH, Legs only SSH, Hops in place starting at 6 of each IC. This time the Qic stopped in between each number to make sure everyone knew the next set we would decrease to 5, then 4, then 3……..
After a successful second attempt of motivators, the PAX counted off into groups of 6 for the Thang.
The Thang began as the sun rose in the East and consisted of six cones in a circle around a center cone. The PAX would complete the exercise and defined number of reps at each cone, run to the center cone, complete 3 burpees, and run to the next cone in a counterclockwise motion. After completing the first exercise at each cone, the PAX would then complete the second exercise at each cone, run to the center, complete 3 burpees, and run to the next cone in a counterclockwise motion. This would continue until Omaha was called.

Today is the first day of Spring. Spring brings hope as we put the past behind us as the days begin to get longer, the weather gets warmer, flowers begin to bloom, the grass turns green, and many other positives are occurring around us. All of these things bring smiles to our faces and hope for the future. As Ralph Waldo Emerson states, “This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.” Let’s continue to work towards the future, learn from our past, and embrace the moments we have with those around us.
Aye! Icy Hot
