10 men shook off the chill and got warmed up damn quick at Young Guns this morning. Here is what we did:
Mile loop to Memorial Stadium around upper Independence Park and down 7th Street, left on Charlottetowne, stopping at opposite turn of “speedway” from the Castle (next to CPCC buildings) on Charlottetowne, for the Lee 500, Young Guns Edition:
Complete 5 rounds of the 100 reps and 5 laps around the Speedway (or until 6:08).
Run mile back home (#terrible)…or jailbreak to ETES parking lot if you didn’t complete your 5 rounds/laps until 6:08.
As Advertised. We did this for the first time at Young Guns back in May and I thought the end of NASCAR season was a good opportunity to roll out the Lee 500 again. Just like in May, it delivered again as it was #terrible from the cold start right to the very end. I actually found myself “weaving” a bit on laps 4 and 5 around the stadium due to O2 deprivation. #burpeedrunk? T-claps to Stinger, Slaughter, Postfontaine and Laettner for coming out this morning after each completed the half marathon at Thunder Road. Not exactly a “recovery” workout …
Awkward Award Ceremony. The VT went to, uh, me this morning — as I was the only masochist who completed the full mile back to home base at the end. Certainly helped that SFox, TML, Gandalf, Caesar, Team SouthBeach, STH and the other usual front-running suspects didn’t show. #iamusually9th But strong work all around by the Pax today: I think everybody got their 500 reps in at least. Also, t-claps to Bushwood for his first visit to Young Guns from South Charlotte. We look forward to seeing you out here again soon.
#FOF. As usual, Wake Up Call was knocking out picture perfect Peter Parker Push Ups and burpees this morning. (My PPPUs were more like Peter Parkers with Little Baby Arm Bends by lap 3. #oof) When F3 decides to add videos to the exercise lexicon, we will need to consider WUC for the shoot — directed by The Cougar, I assume.
Shameless Plugs. #SoleRedemption (http://f3nation.com/2014/10/16/project-soleredemption-to-benefit-charlotte-rescue-mission/). Slaughter is presenting the shoes this Saturday so come out to MIP if you can. (Slaughter, can you send out a link to the new online sign-up sheet for MIP Qs below?)
Thanks to Gandalf and Caesar for the opportunity to lead this morning.
