17 answered the bell this morning for another full hour of FastTwitch. Many of the pax suffered a beatdown yesterday at the MuthaShip but you wouldn’t know it the way they handled the endless hill cycles this morning. Pretty simple plan today – get in as much hill work as possible with some strength training to serve as “active recover”. Here is how it went down
At 5:15am Sharp – mosey to lower to parking lot to avoid the crowd of clipboarders about to convene at the track.
Circle up for proper disclaimer and allow time for a few folks to join us in the COP.

It was an absolute sweat bath out there today. The puddles that were forming at the bottom of SmokeRISE and RISING Meadow starting to merge together and run downstream. Great deal of iron sharpening out there this morning with many of the pax pushing themselves and others to complete the hill circuits. Not much chatter along the way this morning aside from the near mutiny that broke out when it was announced we were to do more hill repeats on Rising Meadow. T-claps to the pax that went back to back Muthaship/FastTwitch – you’ve each earned a much deserved midweek fartsack if you so choose. There were many of the pax pushing themselves to the limit to stay at the front of the pack – Mr Brady, Turkey Leg, Alf, HairBall, Splinter and Gummy to name a few. Haze got a second wind on Rising Meadow and was leading the pack for the final circuits. Chelms was grinding it out on a sore ankle and MallCop put in an herculean effort after getting there just as the pax were leaving the parking lot. Proud to be part of Area51 with so many of the pax getting stronger each week. It was an honor to lead at Fast Twitch.
All in we racked up 5 miles of ups and downs – 100 Merkins, 100 Squats, 100 LBC’s, 60 wide Merkins, 60 Lunges, 60 Russian Twists.
