• When: 03/17/18
  • QIC: Leprechaun
  • The PAX: Taco, Lunch Money (FNG), Haggis, The Bishop (R), Fresh Prince, Brexit, Port o’ Call, H-Bomb, Pace Car, Kea (FNG), Weedwacker

Three things emerged from Thirsty Third Thursday: 1) raised money for Scope Run; 2) planted seeds for Texas Tough(man), which in five years will be the premier F3 event in the solar system, if not the universe; and, 3) an unnamed PAX asked the question: when was the last time you had a really hard workout, so hard that you didn’t think you could finish and were completely spent at the end? 12 PAX posted ITG at #thehogg to investigate that very question. #bb


Summer is coming, 72 and humid. Mosquitos are out.


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.



  • Gather ’round the SFs for SSH x12 IC, we now know how many PAX are present
  • Burpees x100 OYO, interspersed with LBACs, Grass Grabbers, Abe Vagodas, and Tin Soldiers x5 IC
  • Taking a cue (Q) from GrowRuck, burpees were broken down into 4 sets of 5 times 5 in between other usual and customary CoP exercises. After 5 burpees, we rotated 90 degrees to, you know, make a four leaf clover.
The Thang

Recovery mosey to the back of St. Theresa’s and BTTW for 1 minute.

Mosey to the field by the SFs where Las Conitas where strategically arranged. Form 4 lines of 3. Plyometrics for 10 yards, sprint for 10 yards, loop to the outside back peddle for 10 yards, and jog in to recover. Short course today – in retrospect, YHC should’ve lengthened out the cones.

  • Frog Leap x4
  • Lunge Walk x3
  • Side Shuffle x2 (left and right, 2x each)
  • One legged hop x1 (left and right, 1x each)

Mosey to the SFs, circle up

  • Merkins, x10 IC and x5 IC
  • Duck-Duck-Goose with miscellaneous Mary (switching every 2 runners)
  • Merkins x10 IC and x5 IC
  • Duck-Duck-Goose with miscellaneous Mary (switching every 2 runners)
  • Merkins x10 IC and x5 IC
  • Duck-Duck-Goose with miscellaneous Mary (switching every 2 runners)
  • Merkins x5 IC to get to 100 Merkins for the day

The PAX, not being properly exercised, finished off with two Weedwacker-inspired Jailbreaks.

Pace Car’s two friends getting cancer treatment. Weedwacker’s M. Make sure your kids know both parents’ phone numbers. TheBishop took us out.


As much as I hate to admit it, I was baited by the unnamed PAX at TTT. YHC tried to deliver a #beatdown, and the PAX responded. Despite reaching into the Leprechaun St. Patty’s Day bag of tricks, no merlot was spilled. Maybe workouts are getting easier or maybe YHC is softer than I’d like to imagine, but one thing is for sure: the PAX are getting stronger – starting with 100 burpees and finishing with 100 merkins with a high level of compliance and some good burn in between.

And that’s good – because the Texas Tough(man) is going to happen. A #CSAUP less than 2-hours outside of Houston which will include an heroic 1st F beatdown (AO vs AO for bragging rights and a solid gold F3 Texas Tough(man) belt that will be the envy of any professional wrestler), firearms competition, and legendary 2nd F bonfire, BBQ, and beer (the 3 Bs). Overnight stay will be optional but highly encouraged, if needed with duct tape.
