13 men chose this morning to be awesome and posted at #F3FastTwitch. Here’s the work we did this morning:
A little baby jog for a couple of laps around the cars (just to take multiple looks at Spack’s new FX4 pickup truck) with some high knees and butt kicks thrown in to warm up the legs. Then a mosey to the teacher’s lot in front of the school for COP.
Enough of that so we took off at brisk pace from the school down Woodfox to Rounding Run, stopping at one of YHC’s favorite hills on Rising Meadow. Two lines at the bottom light post for hill sprint intervals to the light post atop the hill.
We gathered ourselves for the run up to Raintree Lane. Stopped there for a brief plank-o-rama. From there, we ran a solid pace to the first street sign on Willow Point. Here’s what we did on Willow Point:
Mosey through the blockades and line up for Indian Run from behind the Arbo Walmart back towards home base. Along the way, we made a stop at the grassy knoll on 51 between Serendipity and Strawberry.
Solid pace run back to the SCMS bus parking lot. Circle up for a couple minutes of Mary.
As stated in the pre-game disclaimer, YHC is not a professional. However, YHC does have access to the world wide web. The #F3FastTwitch muscles are built for explosive strength and optimum athletic performance. Today’s workout was meant to work on those muscles.
Hills sprints are always a crowd pleaser. 8 all you got up the Rising Meadow 50 yard hill definitely got the legs firing. Gummy claimed the distance between the light posts got longer each time. Spackler’s time check after each mosey down to the bottom didn’t help morale.
The all you got sprints on the flats at Willow Point were different but still worked on our explosion. At the dead end, FT FNG Horsehead brought forth another explosion, unleashing an unwelcomed spirit on the Pax. Smelled like he ate a ‘possum biscuit before the workout. Total Q failure, in that YHC had us at the dead end, with no way out except to meander through the fog. Lightheaded, we pressed on for the Indian Run.
With old 45 minute time limit, we would have pressed on towards the school. But the full hour brings forth more options for pain. The 11 times backwards run up the grassy knoll with jump squats at the top…complete fast twitch muscle combustion. Although about half-way through, the burn went away, as complete numbness set in. Still we had enough time for a Jacob’s Ladder. Chelms complained.
Afterwards, some of us gushed over Spackler’s new FX4 bad in black pickup truck. It’s got a pretty big bed for hauling stuff, so keep that in mind Pax. Spack (33) said it was his mid-life crisis…but, sadly, he’s probably already well into his 2nd half.
Welcome to site FNGs Horsehead and Prohibition. Solid work by all. Thanks for the opportunity to lead such a strong group. #F3FastTwitch remains the elite Tuesday workout.
New Thursday morning moderate intensity workout launching May 1 in Matthews. Slim Fast and Geraldo are the site Qs. Start EH’ing.
