Beware the Ides of March! 20 PAX entered the urban gloom of downtown #Natville to post at our region’s premier Friday workout. And while today was a retelling of an old favorite, it was no less of a challenge. #TheKIRK, just like F3, always delivers!

“Damn it, Bones, you’re a doctor. You know that pain and guilt can’t be taken away with a wave of a magic wand. They’re the things we carry with us, the things that make us who we are. If we lose them, we lose ourselves. I don’t want my pain taken away! I need my pain!” – Captain James Tiberius Kirk

Set phasers to stun. Here we go…

Warm-o-rama

Mosey to LeBauer Park for a warm up of:

  • Side Straddle Hop x 15 IC
  • Imperial Walker X 15 IC
  • Sun Gods X 15 forward IC
  • Chinooks X 15 IC
  • Sun Gods X 15 reverse IC
  • Wonder Woman X 15 IC
  • Don Quixote X 12 IC (slow Abe Vigoda style)
  • Willie Mays Hayes X 12 IC
  • Lucky 7s (reg merkins, wide merkins, diamond merkins)

The THANG:

Mosey to Church Street parking deck and climb the stairs to the top deck to begin a workout known far and wide in F3 Nation as #TheKIRK…named for the Metro Q who conceived this devious #downpainment. TClaps to Kilowatt for first sharing this #snotwaggle with us back on 12/8/14 and to 3 other Qs here in #Natville who continue to bring this #DRP to us here in Greensboro!

Our goal today was 4 sets of the following:

  • Burpees x 7
  • Merkins x 14
  • Goblet Squats x 21
  • Air Claps x 28
  • LBCs x 35

Run down the deck to street level, then back to top level. This completes Set #1.

Rinse & repeat for 3 more sets – we made it through 2 for 3 complete sets. Upon returning to the top of the deck, PAX encouraged to plank/Mary exercises as group or run down and pick up the 6. 10 counts were offered once 6 was in.

Mosey back down parking deck stairs and across street to finish up.

Mary:

  • American Hammer X 15 (IC)

FIN!

Moleskin, Announcements & COT:

  • TClaps again to Kilowatt for bringing this workout to #Natville. Sorry neither he, nor Gunny were here today. #Fartsackers
  • A big #Natville welcome to Paci (former FNG Luke Parker) for joining us. While Simone gets credit for the EH, it’s his M who did the work! Hope to see you again soon, brother, and thanks for jumping right in with a flurry of information during the name-0-rama.
  • Awesome to have Explosion back out at the Funk. You were leading from the front, brother!
  • We covered nearly 2.5 miles during today’s shenanigans. Graffiti and Don’t Cha Know were running strong today. DCK, I can see the benefit of your trail running! Can I be like you when I grow up??
  • TClaps to strong Site Q work by Drysdale and P-O-E-H-L-E-R. In recognition of your awesomeness, you both received Wojo autographed copies of today’s Thang, suitable for framing!
  • Everest was rocking the Wolfpack red hat at the workout this morning. Great win over Duke last night by the wuffies. Good luck against UVA tonight!
  • SILICONE!! Welcome back (again), brother. I know you first posted last Friday, but it was great seeing you back in the gloom and you were the obvious recipient of today’s PAX-of-the-Day award, presented by Saban. You get to pass it along next week!
  • City Slicker’s word of the day = DISCIPLINE. In what areas of our lives are we doing well, and where do we need some work? How can we get improve?
  • 3rd F workday at Peacehaven Farm tomorrow from 9 am to noon (or for whatever time you can). Text or DM Tommy Boy if you can make it.
