Great group out there today.  The pax are getting strong, Pre KBers outnumbered the Semi-SACKERS 12 to 9 today.  I imagine this number shoots through the roof when our fair weather brethren return this Spring.  No fair weather fans today, 17 degrees this morning and a warm 17 as it actually felt like 17 according to weather.com.  The workout looked more do-able on paper.  The plan was to finish with 2 more laps (1.2 miles) but we ran out of time. That ice on the backstretch didn’t speed us up much.  Recon(TR) notified me as we headed into the gloom that we were in for some skating, and we dodged injuries not once but twice!  I didn’t even preblast the workout and somehow managed to get a very fast group of fast twitchers that made quick work of the laps.  Nothing too inventive or exciting today, just plain old fashioned work, which led to Cottontail calling me Mr. Busywork or something to that effect.  #grinders  Great Compass at Chickfila to finish off the morning.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to triple down with KB’s, Kevlar, and Compass do it once, it will fire you into the weekend like a cannon. Best morning of the week.  Thanks for the opportunity to lead and have a great weekend.

with all the extra KB work along the 51 corridor (Kevlar, DV, Anvil, etc.) – Skunkworks probably needs some extra running and less KB – happy to oblige this coming Tuesday

Hops, we could always meet at 0500 for some running/sprint work, the opposite of the other pre-KB workouts! I’m game… Thanks Bananas for the great Q as always!

Great idea Busch…or we could just do a Combine-type workout at Skunkworks for 45 minutes this Tuesday rather than splitting it into 30 minutes of running followed by 45 minutes of metal work. The combo approach also accomodates those who say Fast Twitch at 5:15 is too early, thus, they won’t make the 0500 pre-workouts either. This accomodates everyone!

Nice Q Bananas! Brown was cracking me up when we took off just as he finished lap 1. Thanks also to Brown for dialing it back a notch and hanging with FNG Rehab. Nothing like a double dose on your first time out!

Ricky Bobby is right, “if you ain’t first, your last!” Man that run was soooo long I was looking for pop up tents, tables of water cups, a cheering section, and a finish line to run through! Haha! Instead I got all you big lung idiots taking off as I get there like I just ran into the largest crop dust known to man!! It was a pleasure to caboose with Rehab, and when he comes back, you can thank me then BD!

Hops, stop messing with Shunkworks! Don’t hate, participate!! #iwastoldtherewouldbenorunning
