Stick to the classics

Stick to the classics

“They told me that the classics never go out of style, but … they do, they do. Somehow, baby, I never thought that we do too.”

They said the donut run was over.  No one does that anymore, running is for Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and maybe a Friday if you want to tickle the ole Tiger-Ball.  As John Rambo said, nothing is over.  Like the old gods, these things never die they just get renamed and recycled.  Rinse and repeat.  A cycle, or a circle.  Like a donut.  You know, the kind with a hole in the middle.

10 Fast Twitchers ran one direction of the classic donut route today.  Re-living the glory days of a Wednesday run, on a Tuesday.  A running workout that YHC never attended in his 5+ years of F3,  but a route that YHC has run many times.  The site q’s, and Alf, stayed home (their loss) for the a run through familiar territory, an unoriginal oldie but a goodie.  West out of Arbo, down Mt Rea, right at Dunkin, a quick yog past Hops yelling at the trifusenik for their lack of effort (t-claps on the BB BTW), right onto Candlewyck and then pax choice for the extra mile through Beverly Crest OR right onto Providence to bring it back to Arboretum.  6 miles or 7.  Unless you’re Voodoo then you do the whole thing twice because it’s that half marathon time of month.

Not much else to share, mostly because YHC was running alongside Butterknife the whole time.  Please sound off in the comments with any chatter or observations.

On a slightly more serious note, backblasts are a thing and they are real.  They don’t have to be long or overly complicated and ANY workout can have a backblast.  A backblast for Fast Twitch is proof.  So if you’re Q’ing or a site-Q, get a backblast written for your shenanigans that day.  The pax will appreciate you.


  • Flipper’s multitude of challenges continue, see Slack for details and get involved.  April is here and it’s time to break out of your ruts
  • May 22nd:  Functional strength challenge is coming, High Tide has the details and there is a pre-blast
  • April 24th:  The Stone(d)-Chicken is a SOB CSAUP to determine which workout is superior (SPOILER ALERT: Neither is superior to Rock Zero)

Thanks to Purple Haze for the takeout
