We Focus on the Second F (with YHC Hopeful it’s not Historically Bad)

PAX: Life Champ, Foggy Pirate, Leatherneck, Venus, Erector Set, En Fuego, Cathy

QIC: En Fuego

Six other PAX braved an En Fuego VQ – arriving to a 46 degree gloom under some breezy skies.  Mumble chatter begins with PAX discussing all time worst VQs and the corresponding exercises.  YHC’s mind starts sweating as the lists are tossed out – hearing the sounds of exercises about to be partaken.  Alas, too late to rewrite the script, the 5:30 bell tolls and we’re off.  Here’s what we did:

Quick mosey followed by COP: SSH, WMH, GMs and Scorpion Stretch.  YHC instructs that today’s theme is the Second F – and from this point forward you won’t do another exercise without your partner.  With that, commence fireman’s carry mosey to the soccer field:

The Thang:

Partner 1 begins suicide utilizing length of soccer field – 1/3rd, 2/3rd and full length with one burpee, two burpees, three burpees at the respective stops.  The Second F twist is Partner 1 never takes their eyes off Partner 2, always facing Partner throughout length of suicide (so half the suicide is backwards run).

Partner 2 commences the following, with Partners flapjacking until the below is complete:

  • 100 Burpees
  • 100 Jump Squats
  • 100 Merkins
  • 100 Lunges
  • 100 LBCs

Following mumber chatter consensus on a growing disdain for backwards running, we’re all in and commence fireman carry mosey back to parking lot.  YHC later realizes VQ lesson #1 – never go back to initial place of COP until it’s officially Mary time – because we aren’t there yet.

With same Partners grab a parking spot lane – wheelbarrow across lot to opposite parking block in your lane.  Partner 1 completes 5 urkins followed by 5 derkins while Partner 2 performs back and forth jump over parking block until Partner 1 completes.  Flapjack and R&R x 3.

Slight mosey back to initial COT spot – confusion reigns again with PAX thinking it’s over (confirming VQ lesson #1 a second time).  Nope, we’ve got 3 minutes for Mary’s – where we complete group ABCs recited around the horn at a level slightly ahead of 3-year old’s pace followed by a plank closeout.  VQ officially a wrap.

COT: TAP for Leatherneck’s brother-n-law, T-Cell and Leatherneck with babies forthcoming and Cathy’s in-laws both battling pneumonia.

Great job to each of the PAX – 1.65 miles total on the suicides.  Thankful and am appreciative for the opportunity to lead and work alongside you!
