Today we had 3 pax for 6 miles (4 laps) around the Standard Loop. Pace continues to increase for all Pax.
You own a zebra, I own a goat, what the hell does that have to do with running?
It was a Couples Retreat today at LRC with 3 power couples (Deadwood/Zin, Hooch/Longhorn, Deflated/Foundation) and Smithers making for a total of 7 pax. Today the route was to run the standard loop (1.5 miles) in reverse. With majority of Pax at the starting point we take off and begin running. Each couple settles in for a stroll through Lawson neighborhood. Along the way we run into our final couple Hooch/Longhorn and they join in for a portion before departing the island and heading back to the other side of Lawson. Around the 1/2 way mark Zin/Deadwood breakout for a private session of Guess your disease or translate your tribal tattoo and leave before COT. After mile 6 Deflated tells YHC to take the French out of my mouth and don’t tell him what to do. So he decided to end at 6 miles. Smithers finished with PR for distance.
As we enter Week 5 YHC has not been able to provide as frequent updates as expected. In fact had to schedule a work travel trip in order to ensure an update can be posted. So without further adieu let us see how the competition is shaping up. Remember competition ends 3/5/20.

Remember a few weeks left, lets see how many more can cross into the 20+ lbs club by the final weigh in.
3 Pax met at Stephens Square Lane (Poop Island) for another rendition of LRC. Today’s course was the “Standard Loop” which is approx 1.5 miles. Each pax completed 4 laps and finished with 6 miles total.
21 Pax came out to Watchtower including some of the pax who enjoy higher mileage (Gerber, Hollywood, and Dasher) so what will we do, provide a workout that is under 2 miles. So with DCCS completed and 0:30 sec left before 5:30 it is time to go.
Mosey through parking lot and once in front of school – shuffle facing school, shuffle facing road, butt kickers, high knees, circle around at stop sign and circle up.
Recalc (Old Man) Stretch
Partner up with some one equal speed and split into 2 teams. Using the official F3 “workout deck” begin by flipping a card to reveal 1st exercise for each team to start with. On Go – first person from each team sprints to given point for that round and back. When return flip a card to reveal next exercise.
Quick mosey back to COT and Finish.

3 Pax made it on time to LRC and a 4th (Smithers) came in late for today’s installment of LRC. Today we returned back to our roots and went about the Original Loop (1.5 mile) on the old side of Lawson. With pax all at the start we synced our watches and were off and running with a target of 5 miles.
Pace was hot from the start (sub 9:00/mile) and few time YHC requested the pace to slow down to no avail. Around the 5K mark, our elder Pax (Recalc) took a detour and headed back home.
Remaining 3 musketeers finished the 5 miles and recovered back to COT.
Next week Smithers on Q @ LRC. Start time 5:30 at Poop Island (Periwinkle/Riverbank).
Week 1 results are in and we are off to a great start with all but 1 Pax posting a positive result. Time will tell as week 1 usually is the easiest and the real challenge comes in the upcoming weeks. So with that lets take a look and see what the leader board shows.
