PAX: 11 Pax braved the hillacides-Lazlo, Coconuts, Jag, Sunshine, Bone, Undertow, Maguire, Petro, Cable Guy, Wedding Singer and YHC
Warm Up: SSH, Moroccan Night Clubs, Michael Phelps, Frankensteins, Willy Mays Hayes, Potato Pickers
The Thang: After the warm up, we moseyed over to drill hill where 8 cones were strategically placed. Much to everyone’s delight, we began a set of suicide drills of the following order:
Run down to the 8th cone, 10 derkins and then backward run to the top for 10 power squats. Down to the 7th cone for 10 derkins, backwards runs to the top and repeat until no cones were left to conquer.
Since folks were tired of running downhill, we decided to run uphill to the following exercises
Bear crawl one cone up and then crawl bear back
Sprint 2 cones up for 20 4 point hops and return
Sprint 3 cones up for 20 squat merkins and return
Sprint 4 cones up for 20 tuck drills
Sprint 5 cones up for 20 power jumps
Sprint 6 cones up for 10 ski abs
We concluded our playtime by sprinting up to the top of the hill stopping to pick up our cones along the way with a burpee and returned to Patriot.

COT: This week, YHC was reminded that this is the 30th anniversary of the ground invasion of Kuwait as part of Operation Desert Storm led by Gen. Norman Schwarpkof. One of his quotes was "You can’t help someone get up a hill without getting closer to the top yourself." In other words, supporting others in their success is a boon for both. Ecclesiates 4:12 says something similar: Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. One of the principles of F3 is to pick up the six, always supporting your brother. We should do this in all of our other callings as well, supporting our work colleagues in their success, our families in achieving their dreams, and in general providing supportive strength where we can.
