Showed up about 5:05am to meet my brother Kickstand to survey the landscape and run Atlas Street a couple times before the beatdown. We went out on the field first. I didn’t think it was going to work but I had to check. Big Nope, too icy still. Basketball court we go for setup.
Kickstand and I met the pre-runners at the perfect time and we got a little mumble chatter going as we grace Atlas with our presence.
5:30am: Welcomed everyone to F3 and to the Maize. Gave the mission statement, 5 core principles, credo and disclaimer. 2 FNG’s present today. Man was I pumped. Then I remembered what I had planned and hoped they would come back…eek
Mosey to Basketball Court for the entire workout.

Thang: 4 set tabata workout. Honestly I scrapped what I originally planned and came up with this last night. Was hoping it would get some moans and groans. Nobody really said much to me afterwards so I think that’s good? Anyway, 4 sets. 5 rounds in each set. 45 seconds of work. 15 seconds rest. 1 minute rest between sets. The sets were as follows:

P&A – Lily pad new baby, polar plunge, blood drive, first Friday lunch, halfway house at the dune, butta vq, Thor D3 t-claps brother, Toto’s niece Waverly, Plague grandma passed away, prayers for lynn, prayers for law enforcement.
We also had a nugent flag passing from the godfather to the self proclaimed nicest guy in F3. Always love seeing a nugent flag passing.
CoT: Failure. Failure doesn’t define you. I failed today doing all the exercises like intended. It’s ok it doesn’t define me. Life is a collection of peaks and valleys. Learn to love an accept that. If everything was easy or came easy to you, you’d eventually get complacent and never push yourself. Failure is an opportunity for growth.
Thanks for the support always
Wait Time led us out in Prayer
