Return to the Skunk

Great morning to be back Q’ing Skunkworks for the first time in a while.  Seems like the new site Q’s have been doing a great job while I was away nursing a dodgy back and training for BRR.  The quantity and quality of regulars at Skunkworks has to be one of the best around and I was glad to be back in the mix.  It was a beautiful cool morning and heres what the 22 of us did:

Moleskin:  Lots of chatter early on which was silenced after the first hundred or so merkins.  Spack went out hot on the first lap to the pavilion, jury is still out as to whether he was able to maintain that pace for the remainder of the morning.  Smokey and Dollywood were pushing the pace with Tullip on thier heels.  Tweetsie was getting after it along with several others in the darkness.  Enjoyed the prerun with Bulldog, Chin Music and Header.  If you want to take your Tuesday to the next level, join those guys for the pre-run.  Not sure about the rest of you, but I had a blast out there today.  Wanted to keep us moving and I think we clocked 2.25 miles and plenty of upperbody.  Little lighter on the bell work than I would usually throw at you guys, but hopefully everyone got something out of it.  Great catching up with you guys today and look forward to the next time.

Thank you Smokey for taking us out, appreciate it brother.

Are you sure it was only 2.25 miles?? It felt like more. And, with the merkins added in, I thought I was at FastTwitch (wait, no, those would have been burpees, which I would have “modified” to merkins, if not skipped entirely). Haven’t done that many merkins in a while – chesticles are sore today.
Well done and welcome back, Fletch!
