Come on out and see what F3 Evanston is all about as we take a tour of James Park aka Mt Trashmore and its surroundings. Might have a little tribute to MerkinMania and our favorite townie, Cutter.
5 PAX met in the early morn gloom with a keen eye on the skies. They looked ominous and so did the beatdown. My guys Eskimo, Borland, RG3 and Escobar braved the elements to get after it.
Trio of Vigodas/Seal Claps/Overhead Claps
Mosey to tennis courts for Evolution 1. Ran some sprints, bear crawls, crab walks and some more sprints. In between 30 second rests, we merkin-ed our way through EV1. Courts were a little slick but the footing held on for us old guys out there, not a young buck in the group. Youngest is 43, oldest is 52. Good group of men.
Mosey to Baseball diamond for Evolution 2. Stole a fun one from my guy over at F3 Oak Park, RA. Thanks for the idea. We ran a 4 corners, shorter version, around the bases. Jump squats, lunges, Bonnie Blairs and ending with monkey humpers. 20 at each base. Legs were feeling it after our sprints and mosey-ing around James Park.
Mosey back to Mt Trashmore for a lighter version of MerkinMania. Derkins, Merkins, Crerkins and Werkins were done.
Then the rains hit,,, So we scurried out after a short 5-10 min “coffeeteria”.
Good to see the three new PAX out each week. Some VQs in the near future from Borland, RG3 & Escobar, I can feel it. VQs are always a little intimidating at first but you need to remember that the other PAX are just happy to follow along and have someone there leading them through a solid workout.
F3 Evanston is building momentum and with next Friday’s weather report looking promising, hoping to see some new EH’d locals out for some fun.
