9 pax posted this morning for a Pre-Mud Run Devil’s Turn workout.
Run .25 miles to the 1 mile loop trail and complete your own pain station at the top of the big hill on each lap; one rep for every degree in temperature which today was 64. The 0515 group completes 5 loops and the 0530 group completes 3 loops. 49er, Joker, Bratwurst, Sprague, Bugeater, and Donkey Kong posted at 0515. Stone Cold, Skywalker, and 2nd week FNG Ivan Johnson (reason for no nickname given will be covered in the moleskin) posted for the 0530 group.
-The long big hill at the half way point of the loop started to feel like the pain station after the 2nd lap. That thing is a killer! Long with a challenging incline.
-There was a little bit of pre Mud Run trash talk amongst 2 of the F3 teams at HDHH last night. A challenge was issued and half of Team Cold Ones (YHC and Joker) and Team Sludgehammers (Bugeater and DK) accepted and posted at 0515. YHC will remain modest.
-There was a bit of excitement at the finished. After waiting longer than usual for Bugeater and DK to appear at the finish line it was finally realized that DK’s car was actually gone but Bugeater’s car was still in the parking lot. Finally a search party (Joker and Stone Cold) was sent out and found Bugeater running his 7th lap around the loop. Strong brother! DK apparently had enough and went home early.
-A verbal acknowledgement of the communication and partner rule will be required before each workout going forward.
-Due to the confusion at the finish there was no COT and Ivan will have to wait until he post at The Rock this Saturday to get his official F3 name. Thanks Ivan sticking around and waiting for the MIAs!
-The Mud Run is just 9 days away and based on the size of many of the recent F3 workouts and chatter… F3 teams look to put in a strong showing. Good luck F3ellas!
