Fast Twich Pre-blast: Tiger Leg

Fast Twich Pre-blast: Tiger Leg

The Q Schedule may say Turkey Leg but you’re going to get 100% Grade A beef instead.

Never you mind that I’ve never Q’d a running workout; my running resume, like George O’Leary’s, speaks for itself:

  • Came in 4th in my waist size at the 1985 Husky’s Chub Rub 1k.
  • I ran for Djibouti National Team in the Horn of Africa¬†Amateur Steeplechase circuit in 95.
  • Dominated my then 10-year old daughter in the 2010 Jingle Jog.
  • I have two dead toe nails and calluses so thick you could set flames to them. #GGordonLiddy
  • I’ve read several running books, including that one with shirtless guy on the front where he calls the pizza man to meet him in the desert; Born To Run (you should read this one); and, just recently completed The Perfect Mile (which is even better than Born to Run).
  • I read all of Brat’s backblasts. ¬†And even understand some of them.
  • I follow Nash on Twitter (congratulations on finally besting my PR)
  • I have a mole in the shape of the Nike swoosh.

With sterling credentials such as these, you’d be a fool not to post.

With that pathetic running resume you could always take on the Burpee mile

Churpee mile is much faster.

Glad to see we finally have someone with adequate training to Q Fast Twitch. Plus, TL’s watch is broken (based on his Q 2 weeks ago) so he may need more time to get it fixed.

This workout could be dangerous. And speaking of running books, I went on a running book binge over the summer. Here are my “Joker ratings” for the 13 I remember reading:

5 Star Rating
– Bowerman and the Men of Oregon
– Running with the Buffaloes [University of Colorado]
– 14 Minutes [Alberto Salazar]
– The Perfect Mile
– Marathon Man [Bill Rodgers]

4 Star Rating
– Running with the Kenyans
– Pre: the Story of America’s Greatest Running Legend

3 Star Rating
– Running for My Life: One Lost Boy’s Journey

2 Star Rating
– Run!: 26.2 Stories of Blisters and Bliss [Dean Karnazes]

1 Star Rating
– Daniels’ Running Formula [as the title suggests, kind of dry and technical]
– More Fire: How to Run the Kenyan Way [the content of this book could have been condensed into a two page paphlet]

0 Star Rating
– Once a Runner [turns out this was a novel about running; a bad novel at that]
– What I Talk About When I Talk About Running [just brutal… couldn’t finish it]

I’ve read a few running books. All were 0 stars. Maybe I’m going to the wrong place:

– Running with the Runs
– Nude Strides – Flopping isn’t just for Soccer Stars
– Pizza Sauce, the Next Chocolate Milk
– Couch to Pre K
– Couch to Coach K
– Running and Peeing, a total experience (little known sequel to George Sheehan’s 1st book)

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
