Auld Lang Syne

9 men showed up at #F3FastTwitch to say goodbye to 2014. Not a lot of reminiscing this morning but certainly a lot of hard work…ended up with 6 miles. Here’s how we got there:

The Thang

We took off from SCMS and hit 51 in the direction of Pineville. We stopped at the entrance to Davie park for a quick plank and knocked out 20 merkins. From there, we ran to the entrance to Carrington where we planked again and knocked out another 20 merkins. Down Cary Ridge we went to the stop sign at Bevington. That’s where the real work began.

  • Run down Bevington to Rea Rd
  • Run back up Bevington to the stop sign
  • AYG sprint to the first speed bump
  • AYG sprint back to the stop sign
  • Run down Bevington to the 4th speed bump
  • Run back up Bevington to the stop sign
  • AYG sprint to the first speed bump
  • AYG sprint back to the stop sign
  • Run down Bevington to the 2nd speed bump
  • Run back up Bevington to the stop sign
  • AYG sprint to the first speed bump
  • AYG sprint back to the stop sign

We planked at the stop sign and knocked out another 20 merkins. After that, we took off for base, going back through the neighborhood. We did a little Indian run to the base of Spackler’s hill.

  • AYG sprint up Spackler’s hill to the stop sign

From there, we did a little baby jog to the end of Browne’s Pond Rd. Then an 80% effort run to the stop sign at the Rosecliff entrance. From there we lined up and did an Indian run up Strawberry back to base. A little time left for some Mary:

  • LBCs x 20 IC
  • Flutter kicks x 20 IC

Moleskine

YHC had a goal of 6 miles at some varied paces. Mission accomplished.

Good group of FT regulars out there this morning plus site FNG Sensei…strong effort brother. You look ready for Joe Davis and the Palmetto 200.

We tossed in some merkins at various points…ended up with 60…a FT New Year’s resolution to kill the notion of hollow chests and pencil arms promulgated by the SkunkWorks’ lunkheads #NeverForget

Honored to lead this morning men. You’re next…TL and YHC will be calling.

Announcements

Joe Davis Run is 1/10.

Sign up for the Unbroken movie also on 1/10. Sign. Up. Now.

Slim Fast is gauging interest for participants in the Palmetto 200 (like the BRR, only flatter). It’s in March. Hit him up if you are interested.
