12/5 Backblast – The first officially unofficial annual F3 Collective Olympics recap

Organize Your Own Olympic Games, at Home - The New York Times

Tensions were high, in fact there was an unofficial protest against the first officially unofficial annual F3 Collective Olympics in the form of a padlock preventing access to the official intended grounds of the games, so events were moved to the unofficial grounds.

Athletes in attendance: Panhandle, Katniss, Cookies, Tortuga, SAGA, Beaker, Big Mac, Noodles and Rain Man (FNG).

Warmup

7 – motivators.

Batwings

Tapytaps

Slow jog with two sets of 10 burpees – run around lake.

On far side split up into two teams:

Event 1: The ball kick. – Set up two cones a good distance apart.

Choose a rep from each team. They kick the ball,  bear crawl to the other cone. Measure distance from cone. For each pace away from the target cone we do 5 merkins (15 paces, 75 merkins). Kick back, walking lunges back. For each pace away from the target we do 10 air squats. (10 paces, 100 air squats). Whichever team wins gets to celebrate with star jumps, losing team mourns with burpees 5x the difference. 25x burpees or star jumps. Team 2 wins.

Event 2: Bags – 3 rounds

Round 1: See how many we get on the board,5 coupon swings for total points. (No points were scored, so we did 50 swings as penance for our ineptitude.)

Round 2: See how many we get on the board, 5x hodors per point. (Blue scored 2, red scored 1), 15 hodors.

Round 3: See how many we get on board, 1x hill runs per point. (Blue scored 2, red scored 0), 2 hill runs.

Whichever team wins gets to celebrate with star jumps, losing team mourns with burpees 5x the difference. 15x burpees or star jumps. Team 2 wins.

Event 3: Stomp Rocket – Similar to ball kick.

Lunge walk to other cone.

5x bonnie blairs for each one off.

Burpee broad jump back

5x merkins each one off.

Whichever team wins gets to celebrate with star jumps, losing team mourns with burpees 5x the difference. Both were 7 paces away so everyone did 5x of star jumps and burpees and we declared team 1 the winner because, biased judging and closer scores are more exciting.

Final event: Murder Bunny 100 yard dash. Thwarted due to time and blocked off track. We did a rifle carry across the parking lot and back instead. Excitement was so strong that everybody started before the official start was announced. For the first time ever, all 9 athletes were disqualified and no official times or winners were recorded.

While valiant efforts were displayed on all sides, team two was the winner of the first officially unofficial collaborative F3 Olympics.

CoT – Prayer for safety and health in general. Also a safe travels and good family time for SAGA.
