BRR mix-up

Keeping faithful to their BRR training, 16 men of Fast Twitch mixed it up today with few hills and some distance.

The Thang


  • Lap around parking lot
  • Lunge warm-up (various)
  • SSH IC x20

Main event:

  • Run out to RainTree, regroup for plankwork
  • Down to bottom of Windbluff
  • Sevens: Burpees at top, squats at bottom
  • Run out to Providence, regroup for squats, etc.
  • Run down Providence towards South Carolina
  • Stop just short (back at RainTree)
  • Indian run up raintree, back down Rounding Run to Woodfox
  • Regroup, 20 merkins oyo
  • AYG back to school

Total mileage: 5.9


  • I think we’ve run this route sometime in the past, but apparently not all the pax appreciated the stroll down memory lane.  Quoted from Gummy earlier today:  “a brutal fast twitch… almost made it to Providence and 485“.
  • Started out with a little something different with some lunge work in the quick COP;h/t to Uncle Leo for the moves from Matrix
  • Lots of mumblechatter in the warm-up run out to RainTree, unfortunately was drowned-out by moans after the announcement of meeting at the bottom of Windbluff for some hill work
  • Somehow Frasier jumped out in the lead and stayed out in front of the group the whole time.  Fletch and 49er were right up there as well.
  • Rest of the workout turned into a straight march for miles. Had another set of 7s planned for the hill at RainTree and Providence to balance, but called an audible with the IR to avoid the OT and kept it moving.
  • Prohibition was keeping it strong until halfway through the IR and pulled back due to a calf… sorry we missed you – hope all is well.
  • Missed last week’s Q, PH who apparently FNGed up at Mutha on Monday.   Too much for the Haze?  Hope to see you back soon.
  • Always an honor to lead the men of Fast Twitch


  • Mudrun registration deadline 7/15.  Register individually, then let Gummy know if you are on a team or free agent.
  • Blue Ridge Relay shirts – orders due in by 8/2.  See website for details.
  • F3 Dads resumes this Saturday, 9am, Col. Francis Beatty Park, softball fields

I’ve enjoyed the latest trend at Fast Twitch to see how far away we can be from our cars with 15 minutes left in the workout. I’m afraid Haze is going to extend the time to 1.5 hours to open up new possibilities.

Good lead Turkey Leg. I pride myself on being able to keep you, Frasier, Fletch and Mr. Brady in sight. And in staying ahead of Spackler (only possible when he isn’t at full strength).

I think Hopper enjoyed his first Fast Twitch, although based on his Q this morning at The Charge, he held a little back on Tuesday morning.

All I know is we need to start making this Fast Twitch Tank Top Tuesday.

Ha! Yesterday was a poor effort on my part indeed. Haven’t had to stop much in the past but I thought I was going to die. Actually saw lights which may very well have been the pearly gates.

Frasier and Fletch are really going to have to pick up my slack in the #BRR. I will say that at least we didn’t get lapped in the 7’s. It was close though. And it seems that the only time I keep them in site is during an IR.

Lastly, it is going to be awhile before I can erase the image in my head of Mr Brady wringing out his tank top. He could have filled a milk jug.

My first Fast Twitch miss in quite some time…it won’t happen again. My apologies to the Q and the Pax. Indeed I was an FNG to Muthaship on Monday. And it opened up a can on me. Resting the dogs seemed warranted.

Gummy…a 1.5 hour FT? I like what you are thinking there. How #bad@$$ would we be then?

I tried the back to back Muthaship/Fast Twitch combo a couple of months ago. It ended badly with me going backwards on the track at FT. I don’t know how Turkey Leg and Mr. Brady do it most weeks.

Broke down today and got the doc to prescribe medicine to take care of lingering gout. Expect to be back next week and have a lot of catching up to do. Will be wearing my PH t-shirt that says “step here” on the back (one week only).

Chelms, we both know I’ll never see the back of that shirt.

Get well brother!

It’s difficult for me to say I “enjoyed” my first FT, but I am certainly glad I did it. That said, if PH moves it to 1.5 hours I will be unfortunately tied up in business meetings at 5:15 AM every Tuesday for the forseeable future….as far as you know. Great lead Turkey Leg! Mr. Brady, the backs of my running shoes still have chips of paint from the front of your running shoes from the Indian Run back. Sorry I was dragging, man. Thanks for your patience.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
