Having run this course back in January during the polar vortex 8 degree morning I thought we should try it again having a full hour. We went a few minutes over last time around, but that must have been the 4 layers giant puffy coats and 20 mph winds. Surely we’d have plenty of time to throw in a few extra circuits…turns out I went over again. Sorry guys for taking it into OT, but I hope everyone enjoyed themselves. The pace down to McAlpine was blistering and I’d say folks are ready for the MudRun at this point. Frasier, an incognito HBee, Intel, Jamboree and others were really pushing the pace this morning. TR, Chelms, Soul Glow, Bug, Slim Fast, Cheese Curd, Runstopper and Hannibal were flying up and down 51 as well. We had an FNG in our midst for a not so FNG friendly workout this morning – welcome Steve Thompson – WATERSEAL. I’d like to thank Purple Haze for partnering up with Waterseal and making sure he reached our destination t claps brother. Serious iron sharpening going on out there this morning. The circuits were brutal as muscle failure was occurring almost immediately on the upper body sets and the Pax was nudging for an audible on the 3rd set. I conceded only to add the final set of upper body before we headed back up 51. The pax racked up anywhere between 5 and 5.5 miles today.

Slimfast announced a new Moderate Intensity workout to begin soon on Thursdays at Matthews Elementary – details to follow on the weekly emails.
Best of luck to all participating in the MudRun. As always, an honor to lead and a pleasure to workout with the men of area51.

Fletch – my first twitch since BRR. Enjoyed being back out with the twitchers. That was some good pain.

Glad to see you didn’t ding me with LIFO label since I was there for over an hour. Waterseal’s sponsor must be evil to send him to FT on his first day – was it PH? Note you didn’t bring up Runstoppers dialogue on the benefits of tights. Probably a good thing.

No sponsor to blame. Had just casually heard about F3 and wanted to finally go for it. Probably should have done some more research — two days later and I’m still recovering. Just brutal for someone who hadn’t run over a mile in probably 10 years. Thanks to all of you for running over so I could finish and especially to PH for waking up at 5 and not even getting a good workout in, just guiding me around.

I’ll hit up some moderate intensity groups, get in shape and come back and put in a better showing in a few weeks. Thanks again. It was, ummm… fun?

Waterseal, solid effort out there brother! You picked one of the toughest workouts to start off with…a distance run at a solid pace that’s also an hour long…not a lot of ways to take plays off. Way to battle through it. It all gets easier, except for burpees. My workout was fine…it was my pleasure to hang out in the gloom with you. Look forward to seeing you next FastTwitch, as your doctoring schedule allows. And so glad you didn’t have to revive yourself.

Again Chelms, not everything evil that happens in this world is a result of something I said or did.

Next thing you know, you’ll be blaming me for Runstopper’s tights exhibition.

I forgot about that. Why did you suggest he wear those aweful things?
