    2/10/18 – A beatdown to Start and back

    Q – Gap

    PAX – Meatloaf, Dauber, Simple Jack, Gadget, Worm, Mayor, Ticket, Rocco, Modell, Bluto, Mercy, Mother Rucker, Johvon “Jingle Bells” Ford – FNG

    Opening – Brief rundown of F3 purpose, principles and agenda.

    Warmup – Side straddle hops

    The Thang –
    Moseyed to the Start High School parking lot to begin the first part of the beatdown.

    First aisle – Imperial Walkers (15 each leg), then air squat rotating twist to the opposite end where we completed Mountain Climbers (15 each leg). Hold plank for the six.

    Second aisle – Imperial Walkers (15 each leg), then lunge to the opposite end where we completed Mountain Climbers (15 each leg). Hold plank for the six.

    Third aisle – Imperial Walkers (15 each leg), then high knees to the opposite end where we completed Mountain Climbers (15 each leg). Hold plank for the six.

    Moseyed back to the Oasis meeting at the playground. Al Gores waiting on the six.

    All members of the PAX assumed plank position with one member at the pull up bars. Member called out on pull up while the rest of PAX went down and counted off. Member would complete reps up to ten then rotated to next member until all PAX completed pull ups.

    Mosey to the parking lot where we completed:

    American Hammers (20 each side)
    Big Boy Sit ups (30 each)
    Plank up downs “Stump Huggers” (20 each)
    Air Squats (30 each)
    Side Straddle Hops (20 Each)

    COT – Prayers for Sideshow’s mom, Meatloaf’s cousin, a prayer of thankfulness, for the troops who make it possible through their sacrifice, and those unspoken. Reminder to complete Cherry Street Mission survey, look for future shoe donation opportunity coming up and to keep EHing new members while reaching out to those who haven’t posted lately.

    2-10-18-Bluto’s homecoming ruck
    Pax: Dauber, Ticket, Gap, Mercy, Modell, Mother Rucker & Bluto
    The Thang: the goal of this ruck was to get in 3 miles of rucking goodness in about 15 minutes. I didn’t want this to be a lame walk in the park so I asked Mother Rucker to bring some sandbags. So, we added 3 coupons weighing 40, 60 & 80lbs respectively. Adding coupons to a ruck in West Toledo wasn’t the best idea as all the snow from the previous day had created some rough terrain. Luckily the 7 of us manned up and humped those coupons down Grantwood and back around to Castlewood. We got to see Bluto’s childhood home, the house where the first girl he kiss lived, and the house where one of Bluto’s best moments of his 8th year of life happened. We then turned down Roanoke and proceeded down Sylvania Ave. we saw suck historical West Toledo landmarks as the former Nettys, Cosmic Creations Comic shop, Kids Again Collectibles, CD underground, Red Wells and Hollywood Dream Factory. These were all places that Bluto frequented as a kid that are all gone now. We then took a left down Tremainsville and trekked through knee high snow in some parts. We saw Black Diamond, where Bluto worked for 4 years, and then proceeded back to the AO for Gap’s beatdown.

    We finished with Namearama, Counterama and a quick COT.

    Great job everyone pushing through these less than ideal conditions and hats off to Mercy who posted for his first ever ruck!
