THE THANG:

Run to Great Britain (far end of field)
Patrick was not born in Ireland. He was born in Great Britain around 385. His father was a deacon, but Patrick was not very religious.

3 sets:
10 Merkins
10 Copperhead Squats
10 Plank jacks IC

When he was 16, Patrick was kidnapped by pirates.

Run to Ireland (near end of field)
Patrick was a slave in Ireland, where he cared for animals. During this time of solitude, he found God.

3 sets of escape exercises:
10 Mountain climbers IC
10 Lunges IC
10 Flutter kicks IC

Patrick had a vision where he received instructions on how to escape Ireland and find a ship back to Great Britain.

Run to Great Britain
Patrick studied religion back home and became a priest.

3 sets:
10 Jump Squat
10 Shoulder Taps IC
10 Big Boy Sit Ups

Another vision told him to return to England to become a missionary.

Run to Ireland
Patrick worked to convert the Irish to Christianity. He incorporated many of their pagan rituals, which included many elements of nature. The balance of the three-leaf clover was used to explain the Holy Trinity – and that’s why we did sets of 3 today.

3 sets of exercises adapted into the F3 culture:
10 Side Straddle Hop IC
10 Merkins
10 American Hammers IC

Climbed the Irish Mountains: 30 step-ups on the bleachers

MARY:
Big boy sit-ups, Superman’s, Nolan Ryan’s, bird dogs, bridges with leg lifts, LBCs, flutter kicks

ANNOUNCEMENTS: St. Patrick’s Day Shenanigans workout on Thursday at several AOs

COT: I originally researched the St. Patrick story to use as a Sunday School lesson. It worked at F3 too. Do the extra work – you never know how far it will take you.
