That seemed like a tough one out there. Tough for me at least. Not sure if it was the humidity or just overall push by the PAX and our competitive nature. YHC is pretty sure that the new asphalt on Mr. Un’s Death Hill added at least 5% to the grade, as going up seemed especially hard today. Shout out to the PAX who were all kicking butt going up that thing multiple times. Guys were working hard today, really getting after it. I reiterate, NOT ONE COMPLAINT ALL MORNING!
Should have known we (yes I’m speaking for the PAX) were going to be in trouble today when #1-the Warm Up was kicking our butts and #2-I looked down at my stupid watch only 20 minutes in and see HR levels I don’t usually reach.
The plan for today was just some good ol’ fashioned running mixed in with various exercises the same two exercises. Kept it pretty simple, only hit one of the three named Waxhaw hills and stayed close to home to avoid most the hazards that The Floater possesses. We didn’t get an annoying dog bark, deer sighting, scary sound from the bushes, had limited cars, no train, really was quiet out there today. (This next part may not be true) I may have even stopped to walk for a second couple of seconds? going up Death Hill. What makes F3 great is that I gathered my breath (allegedly) and started moving again (remember I may not have actually stopped), something I know I wouldn’t have done were I alone. The F3 push. Plus Glidah was pulling away and Bottlecap + Easy Button were making me look bad. The rest of the PAX were pushing it and even if having to stop or slow down, YHC noticed that they getting right back to running or Merkins or whatever else we were doing (actually that’s pretty much it).
And since YHC’s stupid watch used its advanced algorithms and scientific formulas to tell me that my recovery time needs to be 3 days after this workout, I guess I’m not allowed to post again until Monday. Until then…
