When: 12/21/2018

  • QIC: Trojan
  • The PAX: Guitar Hero, Quarterback, Slingblade, Weedwacker, Mr. Gipper, Detention, YHC (QIC)

7 PAX > 0 FNGs learned how to count to 21 today! What a gift! It’s a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!!


HO HO HO! A breezy, and clear 43*, the first cool morning in The Gloom this week! It was WONDERFUL!


YHC is not a professional. F3 workouts are voluntary and FREE – you are here voluntarily #YouAgainstYou. Modify as needed. Notify the Q or rest of Pax of any serious medical conditions #PushYourselfButDontHurtYourself.

  • 8-Count Body Builders x21 OYO
  • Ranger Merkins x21 CC
  • Rosalitas x21 IC

The children of The General were overjoyed with the generosity of the PAX!

Following the WoD, YHC headed over to #f3Atascocita to push some more:


  • 1-mile run
  • 100 pull-ups
  • 200 Merkins
  • 300 Squats
  • 1-mile run

Sandbag Training: 56 pound ruck > 40 pound Hogg Sack. The plan was to do 4 sets of Lunges x50 (each leg), Cleans x25, O/H Toss x25. I got into the 2nd set, my body stopped, and I could not find the motivation to push through. This is the first time I have failed this week. I QUIT. My body could have pushed through, but I was done mentally, and I could not recover. Luckily, YHC has a short memory. Back at it tomorrow to finish The Gauntlet on a high-note!

CountORama and NameORama

7 PAX > 0 FNGs


TAPs those traveling through the holiday, and for our men and women who are deployed and away from their families.


Failure became real for me today. This was the first time this week I was not able to push through the pain and discomfort. No excuses. I failed. I quit. It is so hard to find motivation alone. “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Aye!
