It’s called shamrock because we’re looking for 4-leaved clovers

In the morning gloom 21 #HIM posted for no-see-um’s last Beatdown at F3NatureCoast. YHC rolled in right at 5:30 to start our beatdown with a disclaimer and a quick mosey.

Getting to the field

we started out with SSHx15 IC, Imperial walkers x15 IC, BAC x 10 IC both directions and 15 Squats, and with that done we were ready to mosey to our clover field.

Looking for 4-leaves

The main course of today was a shamrock, suicides with exercises. going down Sunlake the PAX was doing exercises down the road with six stations:

  • 10 Merkins
  • 20 Mountain Climbers
  • 30 American Hammers
  • 30 Squats
  • 20 Peter Parkers (the easy way)
  • 10 Burpees

But the shamrock wasn’t that easy. the PAX started with 10 Merkins then bear crawled to the first stations where 20 MCs were had, then ran back to the start and did 10 Merkins, bear crawled, 20 MCs, bear crawled and did 30 AHs and ran to the start.  the PAX’s mumble-chatter was trying to figure out why it was named a shamrock. The PAX did this until they had gone to every one of the stations ending up getting us:

  • 50 merkins
  • 100 mountain climbers
  • 120 American hammers
  • 90 squats
  • 40 (easy) peter parkers
  • 10 Burpees
  • 1/4 mile of bear crawling

But not all PAX did the 1/4 mile of bear crawl, they instead modified into lunges. once the PAX finished we hadn’t found any clovers so we went again, this time moseying between stations, and doing all exercise counts the easy way. The PAX found our four leaf clover, getting lucky that we were running out of time, and had to mosey back to the courts.

YHC heard some mumble-chatter about how the workout sucked, which meant it was a good one.


here our 21 PAX wished no-see-um luck with his move from Nature Coast and that he continues there with F3Alpha. our prayers are with smoggy and his 2.0.

Change of Command

After this it was time for No-See-Um to hand the flag to Grouper who is now the FOM of F3NatureCoast.


No-See-Um has made an impact in every one of our lives by bringing F3NatureCoast and the other men of it to us. You may not be at every beatdown in person, but you will be in spirit.
