Uptown 50


Five PAX initially posted including a return FNG from the prior week who had not yet received his F3 name.  Teardrop also texted that he was running late and, as promised, did arrive at the end of warm-a-rama which was perfect timing since we needed an even number of PAX for partners during the Thang.

The core principles of F3 were explained to the FNG and the disclaimer was given.

Warm-a-rama: Mosey to the end of the street for SSH, Abe Vigoda, Grass Pickers, Monkey Humpers, Slow to fast Mountain Climbers, Plank Jacks.  As we saw Teardrop had pulled in, we returned to the shovel flag via Side Shuffles, and Carioca.

The Thang:

Mosey to the center field where cones were set up for a modified Uptown 50:

Side note: Yesterday was our Nantan’s birthday which reminded me that there was a routine in the exicon named after him which lead to this workout.  Happy Birthday, Uptown Girl!

10 Merkins and then travel 50 yards via the instructions on the first cone to the next cone; 10 Merkins and repeat until all 10 modes of travel were completed — Broadjump Burpees, Nur, Crab Walk, Partner Carry 1 and 2, Lunge Walk, Wheelbarrow partner 1 and 2, AYG (sprint), Bear Crawl.  Total of 100 Merkins.

Mosey to playground for Morning Call — in turn, each PAX did AMRAP of Pullups while the others did Dips, LBCs, and Squats.

COT: Prayers for Teardrop’s daughter as she completes her recovery of a torn ACL; Praise for Apollo’s successful birth of his much anticipated kidney stone!  The sex is unknown but Apollo is feeling much better.

After waiting a week, our FNG was given his F3 name of Pocahontas…he may have wanted to wait another week but we have no doubt he will carry his name well, as he assured us he is confident in his manhood.  Welcome to the F3 brotherhood!
