16 of us met at the usual Fast Twitch stomping grounds for this weeks episode “Even if you Q it, you can still finish last”.
Plan was quite simple. Constant movement. We meandered somewhere in Raintree and performed what I will now call the “Triple Nickel Loop”
Partner 1 does the Triple Nickel (merkins and squats) on Rising Meadow Rd while Partner 2 runs the loop down Rounding Run and back
Flap Jack X 2
Indian Run back to AO.
2 mins of elbow plank
25 LBC in cadence
1 min of elbow plank
Am I in good enough running shape to lead a Fast Twitch right now? Nope. So YHC had that going for him. But I would never admit that before the fact. There was going to be nothing methodical/Swift about this day. Just pure madness and utter confusion with the hope the pax got a good workout.
We did a lot of hill work last week. Knew there would be some marathoners attending so I thought I’d keep the hill work to a minimum. Triple Nickel wouldn’t be that much hill work. I thought. Well it took longer to make that Rounding Run trip than was planned. Ole Chelms knocked out 9 times up the hill on the first round. Oh yeah, #Kotters to you. You looked really hurt. Ha. But no, I saw the look in Purple Haze’ eyes and he really missed you. #teary Heard Bout Time say that he finally knows what it is like to play soccer – running the whole time. That was the goal brother – minus the ball. Great to see the unselfish wily vets in Slim Fast and Mr Brady circle back for the #six which included Geraldo and myself. Only to arrive and say, “We got it from here Spack. Go ahead and catch up and lead”. No really guys. I was quite fine with the #six gentlemen as G man and I were sharing that handle today!
Wasn’t a whole lot of other backblast material that I caught. Sound off if you got it. I’m sure Hairball has something. Normally does. Oh yeah, glad to see that you didn’t have to take off being on call and all. Whew. No #Ebola in Charlotte yet.
Always a pleasure. I hate running. Fast Twitch is the worst/best hour of the week.
Purple Haze has now been named co site Q to Fast Twitch. Well done.
Then my phone cut off.
