Longest Twitch Ever

8 men eschewed the passing rain to experience what was the longest Fast Twitch ever (in time at least).

The Thang:

Warm-up in parking lot with mountian climbers, various lunges, SSHs.

Mosey down to Calvary lot via Davie Park and Rea, stopping for a few merkins along the way.

Partner Suicides:  One partner runs the suicide, other does called exercise. Flapjack

  • Merkins
  • Squats
  • Flutters
  • Monkeyhumpers *crowdpleaser
  • Dollies
  • CDDs
  • LBCs
  • Diamond merkins

Mosey over to rear entrance with steep hill.   11s on hill; squats/burpees.  Called early due to time.

Line up for indian run back to launch point.

Overtime: 1:10

Distance: 5.25


  • Great job seeing the die hard runners and runstopper out there despite the early rain
  • Nice to see some of the swift/FT fence sitters joining FT for the final warmup before the convergence next week;  glad to have Fraiser running for the FT team again
  • Must have been a bit humid today, seeing Hairball wring out his shirt at the end and putting Mr.Brady’s waterfall to shame
  • Cobains for the tardy return; a bit overzealous on the 11s; did someone poke the Q?
  • Some regulars missing this week – hope to see you there next week for the time trial!


  • Will be converging next week with Swift for the 1 mile time trial.  See preblast at:  http://f3nation.com/2014/10/09/preblast-1-mile-time-trial-and-other-fun/

Overzealous – You think? It’s 6:00am, we are 7-8 minutes from home base, and you call 11’s with burpees. Pretty sure 7 guys thought WTF. I thought that because I was already gassed from the suicides.

That was a tough one – reminded me of BRR going back up hill after burpees. You demonstrated how to lose friends and make enemies perfectly.

I may slash some tires if I can figure out who suggested you could not keep up with Bratwurst. I have a guess that it was the man that eschewed Hydra this am because I brought a few little bricks.

Chelms, I’ve said it before and I will say it again…not everything bad that happens in a workout is my fault.

“Eschewed”?…big word and you spelled it correctly…impressive.

And yes, anytime I know the pavers will be present I will be noticeably absent.

Maybe not every time but you do get your fair share

It was Strange Brew. It’s all his fault. Taunting a sleep deprived Turkey Leg who spent all night trying to find his running shoes and toothbrush in a garage full of moving boxes. Everything after that was a blur. I don’t think that TL said very many words during this workout.

Suicides had my eyes bugging. I figured we would head back after that, which would have been bad enough. The 11s were so bad it was funny – borderline hilarious.

The “every man left behind” Indian Run to finish things off was a classic. A string of guys flying up Hwy 51, dropping off like flies one by one. I think 8 started and like 3 finished. I did not make it to the end.

HH – That is funny. I want to ride in your van next year in the BRR.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
