The IIIP crew had become a little rusty over the summer so YHC felt the need to “edumacate” the PAX a little as we head back to school.
QIC: Silver Medal
PAX: En Fuego, Lumbergh (Respect), Princess Aurora, Moneyshot, Twin Peaks, Crablegs, Sideline (FNG), Toothless
CONDITIONS: Honestly, conditions were utterly oppressive. Really. 80+ degrees. Perfect!
WOR w/ MOSEY
Started with a Capri Lap around the church parking lot to make sure we would be seen toward the front of the grounds in the event PA, Crablegs and Toothless decided to show up (note the previous evening HCs). Back up to the field for some WOR (SSH x 15, WMH x 15, LBAC x 15)…still no sign of the three who have apparently gone UA.
As we mosey to the playground, YHC proceeds to talk to the PAX about the various structures upon which different schools base their curriculum(s)(i)(a)? FNG Sideline was quick to intervene after noticing my obvious struggle with Latin, informing me that the plural of curriculum is “curricula”. All of that prep school Latin is finally paying off for him I see. Back to the workout. Many schools are based on the STEM curriculum; others, like St Paul, are on the STEAM program. (The PAX later learned how painful Art really is).
Partner Up 1 / 2
S – Swerkin – The PAX learned the SCIENCE behind pushups and that they are actually not bodybuilding chest exercises. They are part of the calisthenics family since they are body weight only, and actually more core exercise than anything – using your full body. The PAX learned that F3 actually has a version to help them better feel the pushup as a full core exercise. (Total team 100 – one exercise / one does lap)
T – Turkish Get Up – We learned that Turkey has the 3d fastest growing population in the use of mobile TECHNOLOGY for e-commerce. (One partner exercise AMRAP, other lap – goal is 3 laps each)
E – Everest – The PAX learned that Mt Everest is part of two countries: Nepal and Tibet, which is a part of China. The Chinese have been by far (for better or worse) the largest investor in the ENGINEERING of the road and trail infrastructure of the mountain for years. (Start from bottom of Bernie Hill. “Everest” up, lap around track, RnR sans lap)
A – Apple Turnover The PAX learned that Apple has recently released an unprecedented augmented reality program in six cities whereby you can walk the cities and the phone can display digital ART against the landscape. (20/20/20yds flop bearcrawl/crabwalk/bearcrawl, lap, RnR, lap)
M – Mexican Jumping Bean Pull-ups The PAX learned that the Mayans were one of – if not the most – well known experts in MATH. From the discovery of absolute 0/zero to the Mayan, calendar. The Mayans are a large part of the modern day country of Mexico. (Total team 50 – one exercise / one does lap)
Few minutes to spare to talk to the PAX about COMMON CORE CURRICULUM as we mosey back down to the parking lot. After a brief AOQ-infused penalty, we proceeded to finish up with some Captain Thors. (10/40)
- September 14 – F3 NASHVILLE 5-yr celebration.
- [Former Skunk] AO now posting at St Paul in Green Hills on Mondays. Meant to be collective training ground – if you’ve got an upcoming endurance event on the calendar (ruck, run, etc.) come post and get your training on with your fellow PAX.
- Continued prayer for Boone’s Farm
It was an honor to lead this morning. Stay sharp and listen to your teachers!
