Chiles Backblast – Deck of Pain

Deck of Pain

  • When:  08/07/2017

  • QIC:  Dimples

  • The PAX:  Fish, Slowhand, Magneto, Flipper, Iron Horse, Cathy, Force Fire, FNG Justin Sharp (2nd post), Frontline, SlapShot, FNG Chase Lee (1st post – T’Ville), ManGuy, FNG Pete Brooks (T’Ville), Papi (T’Ville), Pebbles, Blackfoot, SS Minnow, Digger (T’Ville), Rev, QIC Dimples

20 PAX with 3 FNG’s and T’Ville continues to show up in good numbers as we plan for their new AO in the coming weeks. More information on that to follow. QIC promised Deck of Pain, and delivered though a double tab on the phone with 10 cards left forced us to improvise the last 10 minutes.

Before we got things started, circled up at 5:20 for Roll Call (Name, Age, F3 Handle), ManGuy overview of F3 for the new guys, and Lord’s Prayer.

Mosey to the track and circle up on football field for Warm-Up:
30 SSH
25 Merkins
30 Imperial Walkers
30 Mountain Climbers (MC’s)
Quick rinse in preparation for Deck of Pain.

The Thang: ‘Deck of Pain’
The concept is pretty simple – a deck of cards with each suit representing a different exercise along with 2 Jokers for Q’s choice.

Diamonds – Merkins (straight, diamonds, peter parker-spidey)
Hearts – Squats (air & jump)
Spades – Core/Abs (flutters, LCRC, Hello Dolly)
Clubs – 100 yard sprint (across field and back 50+50)
Joker 1 – 1/2 mile S&B
Joker 2 – Burpees

Unfortunately on card 41, the QIC double tapped the app so lost our place, so had to improvise that last 10 minutes. This included “the Finisher” which was 4 x 50 yard sprints with 5 Burpees on each sideline.

Great push by all men today!

I’m continually impressed by the dedication and accountability of the Thomasville crew (T’Ville) as Digger is growing the group and gaining interest enough that guys are driving down to Chiles each week. Plans will shape over the next few weeks for a launch date, and the Chiles crew will return the travel favor and help plant a new AO in T’Ville. 2 FNG’s again from T’Ville today. Currently targeting a Saturday morning PRIOR to football season. More to come.

In other news, Fish is casting lines for new job opportunities, Magneto is empty nesting with last 2.0 heading to college, Flipper is back after 2.0 is swimming on her own, impressive work by 70+ year old at Operation 5K with Trek, Iron Horse, Sasquatch and Cathy over the weekend, FocusFire’s 2.0 leading by example at CCS, ManGuy shared of Romans Chapter 5 (see below), Papi’s family is taking over the school with his spread of 2.0’s, Pebbles back from battling sad clown syndrome, Digger is practicing his breathing exercises while scalloping and sunbathing in Crystal River making him a bit faster each week. Rev was back in the gloom after his Colorado trip for Campus Crusades, and also shared the new of the passing of his Mom’s battle with cancer over the weekend. Prayers go out to Rev and his entire family. He reminded us to live in the present.

Romans 5 1:5

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.


Upcoming Q’s:
Tuesday – Gilchrist – Rev
Wednesday – Chiles – Iron Horse (modified 4 corners w/ Burpees)

Until next time,
