QIC: CA (Virgin Q for Boerne AO). First Q in 5 months, a bit rusty but like riding a bike
PAX: Abacus, Hannibal, Hay Bail (FNG Kelly Williams), Pirate, Cowboy (Second Helping), Madonna, Teddy Bear (FNG Todd Fry), Mr Potato Head, CA
9 Pax posted (including 2 FNGs, and 1 Second Helping) at Boerne City Park for a High Intensity Interval Muddy Beat Down!
Conditions: Beautiful morning, 65 degrees, Boerne City Park Soccer Fields were saturated after 5 straight days of rain. Was awesome to see the Sun shining for a change!
Disclaimer: F3 workouts are free and voluntary. QIC is not a professional. Workouts are supposed to be hard, but never do anything you’re not comfortable with. HIIT is great cardio, but do not allow your heart rate to increase too much, stop immediately if you feel faint or dizzy. Modify any and every exercise if necessary. Push yourself, but don’t hurt yourself.
Mosey to the far soccer field ( to discover saturated ground, soon to be a muddy mess). Lateral, Asskickers, high knees.
Circle up for warm up
Low Slow Squat, 15×4

Noticed several veteran pax giving me the “this-is-lame-not-hard-enough-look” for a prolonged full body warm up. Laughing to myself because only I realize the beatdown about to be unleashed!
Time for HIIT!
