Intro:

I was pleased to wake up to temperatures above freezing and no snow on the ground. I knew the parking lot would be wet, but traction shouldn’t be an issue. I arrived at the Colosseum a little before 05:00 to verify that, and it was the case.

Warm-o-Rama:

Motivators from 7
Good Mornings x 10
Goofballs x 12
Hairy Rockettes x 12
Arm Circles x 10

The Thang:

This was a Billy Madison-style workout. The PAX worked there way through the grades. Each grade involved doing the exercise listed, along with the exercises from all the grades below. After completed each grade, the PAX ran to the other (short) side of the lot and back, except for grades 5, 8, and 12 which warranted a graduation lap around the entire parking lot.

 COT:

Yesterday at Q Source we talked about the concept of Language. Just a side note here, if you haven’t checked out Q Source yet I highly encourage you to do so. It provides an additional layer to what F3 has to offer, and it’s a great way to get to know your fellow PAX better. Anyways, the term Accountability came up and it speaks to how society has bastardized the word. I won’t go into the full details; you can read the full text through the link on the Third F channel. Just know the F3 founders have created their own definition of the word. Accountability is “the submission to Standard through enforcement and consequence.” Standard. The concept of Standard got the group at Q Source thinking about our standards here within F3 Crossroads. You’ll hopefully see some activity soon that shows our standard is high and that we are going to try to be more cognizant that everyone is aware of it. Rest assured; we are doing quite well. Our big brothers in Naperville have a high standard and we have benefitted from that.

 

This spurred me into thinking about what the standard is for other aspects of my life. At my work, there are behaviors I see that are below what I believe where the standard should be. I am going to strive to call my leadership’s attention to that and institute a better culture within my organization.

This concept also applies at home, church, sports teams, what have you.

The consequence of not having a standard, or having low standards, is that the behavior our outcome is going to be less than desirable. Think about that and act as necessary.

Naked Man Moleskin:

In the spirit of Accountability, the PAX provided me with an AAR of my Q. Bunny Hill gave me great feedback on the order of my exercises and invited me to work the harder ones into the lower grades next time to allow more time to experience the pain. I appreciate the feedback and will factor that in next time I Q this type of beatdown. Sparkler’s site q skills were on full display this morning; he led from the front of the workout, did a great job communicating with me and the other PAX, was cognizant of everyone’s safety, and took some great pictures and videos.
