Someone obviously left their A/C on and their front door open… that can be the only explanation since it was 75 just 7 days ago!! 8 PAX shunned warm beds… and I’m saying 50 would be warm… to come experience some O2 deprivation combined with Fellowship. The latter of those tending to make the former more tolerable!

Off we go… headed for Spackler Hill on Coburn Ct.
Always a crowd pleaser… give it all you can up the hill, then recover jog back to the bottom. We did this for 15 minutes, and everyone got in 11-12 reps. That translates to approx. 1.5 mi, or 6 x 400. As we talked about, and for future reference, the pace back to the bottom for recovery isn’t the most important part… it’s the gassing up the hill that builds the anaerobic capacity. (Bratwurst can now school me on the science!)
Next we partnered up for Catch Me If You Can for 1 mi. to Davie Park. Partner 1 does 10 Merkins, while Partner 2 starts to run. When Partner 1 catches Partner 2, flapjack… continue to Merkin/Run/Catch flapjack until we reached Davie Park. LBC’s until everyone arrived.
Staying with partner, Partner 1 runs to the Clubhouse while Partner 2 runs to playground and does 10 Dips, 10 Step-Ups and 10 Decline Merkins. Partner 2 made it back to start ahead of Partner 1, and did LBC’s until P1 made it back… then flapjack.
Time for some quick Mary
Line up for Indian Run back to South Charlotte Middle School.
STILL time for a little more Mary… Protractor as moderated by Hopper, Freddie Mercury x20, DONE!

Excellent job out there this morning! As always it is an honor to lead a great group of men at the finest running workout in F3! Kudos to everyone for braving the cold. I personally don’t like being cold… in fact, I hate it!!! But I was able to wear appropriate layers and gloves, so I actually didn’t abhor the morning!
Radar and Hairball went short pants, so you don’t ever have to worry about typing that about me when Wind Chill is low 20’s/upper Teens!
As you would expect, Turkey Leg and Mr. Brady stayed well ahead of everyone else. Great to see everyone giving their all. Geraldo continues to get stronger… BRR, get ready!!
Great to see Hairball back after some brief IR. Haze, Hopper and Radar strong as usual!!
Thanks to P-Haze for the prayer out.
Announcement (hastened by Radar since he was bare-legged… and not in that Nair “Who Wears Short Shorts” kind of way… more like Jack Links Messin’ With Sasquatch kind of way…)
