F3 Valentines Day 2020

We had a special day at Valley of Gloom. 2 guest Qs from the Pack did a collaboration beat down in 32 degree weather. 25 Men got rock solid for their M’s best Valentines present ever.

Mosey followed by Pull ups, Burpees, Situps, Merkins

Then we were tortured with a combination Leg lift, LBC, Z trace with high reps. Not sure what that was called. Maybe. “I hate the letter Z”

We did the Motivator for about 10 minutes solid.

Threw in some duck walks and parking lot sprints.

Lunged for about 100 yards

Memory went blank. may have passed out

Woke up at Chik-fil-A with a heart shaped biscuit in my hand

Jesus Didn’t Fartsack

Date: 12/20
Temp: 30 Degrees
Time: Gloom 30
8 PAX showed up layered for the cold. Well (except for Bates). He likes to always sport shorts.

I had previously fartsacked this Wednesday because I thought it was too cold outside. Fartsacking is defined on the F3 Lexicon as: “Staying in bed instead of Posting”. But today, I was on Q. I had to be there for my brothers. That got me thinking. Why don’t I always have that mentality.

We have an area at our AO that reminds me of church pews. I grew up Catholic, so I decided to do a new workout based on the different movements done in church. For ex. You spend time kneeling in prayer. You spend time sitting in the pew and some standing. (More on that Later). I always picture the cross when I think about church.

I thought about what Jesus did for us on the cross. This Wednesday, I found myself doing the easy thing (staying in my warm bed) instead of getting up and working out with my F3 brothers. Do you remember those WWJD bracelets? I thought to my self later that day. What if Jesus fartsacked? He knew ahead of time that he was going to be executed that day. He knew how hard it was going to be. He didn’t say “I’ll wait another 2,000 years when the death penalty is easier to handle”. He did the “hardest” thing for the people he loved. Who am I too say “It’s too cold outside” or “I’m too tired” or “Today’s Q is too hard” or any other excuse I can think of.

We don’t do this because it is easy. We do this to better ourselves, but more important, to support one another. That PAX in the dirt next to you may need encouragement. The Q definitely needs your support. He worked hard to put that workout together. The circle of trust needs your input. When 2 or more are gathered, the Lord is present. LET’S make it MORE. Let our voices be heard. Be the HIM you were called to be. Be there for your Brothers. Remember, Jesus didn’t fartsack.
