IT was a chilly 39 degrees. Dark and absolutely quiet as I got my bike out of the garage. I’m thinking “am I really going to do this” while I coasted to Heartbreaker’s driveway just a few houses down the street. We met up with two more guys and off we went to my first F3 Renegade post – that was TH Feb 14, 2019. It started easy with jumping jacks (SSH) and arm circles (to my self i thought, this is easy) then WHABAM!- a little mosey down the road to an exercise that I believe will change me forever…. The Captian Thor’s….
I was hooked. It was possibly the most difficult thing I have ever done. seems easy: 1 sit up (BBS) and then 4 side to sides as I called it (American Hammers)…then 2 BBS with 8 A.H. then 3 BBS with 12 and so on so forth until 10 BBS and 40 American Hammers….I don’t remember how many I completed but I know I didn’t finish – NOT EVEN CLOSE… and then I realized it didn’t matter. Nobody was judging me. Only encouragement – and really i think the guys were just checking to make sure i was still breathing…i looked rough as Loveseat shared weeks later.
Fast forward to yesterday (Thursday July 11) where I Q’d my first! An Amazing day I would have never guessed could happen…
