Friday’s component of Recovery Road workouts;
Lame Duck – Fri 5:45 AM
Root Elementary School – Lassiter Road Parking Lot

A crescent moon stood vigil in a clear sky over Eight Pax on hand in the 26 degrees temperature (but dry)with a nice breeze cutting thru pant seams.Thus began another edition of the “No Run, Some Fun” recovery type work-outs for F3 Raleigh.

F3 Disclaimer plus the RR disclaimer provided. No FNGs.

Not a lot of witty verbosity from Dice in the BackBlast – Just glad to be alive and able to get out there in the gloom. As YHC performs today’s write-up, it’s 8:00 AM, I’m at the office…already worked out, showered, shaved and full of energy (though my arms and chest will be sore tonight / tomorrow…. the Pax worked on their Pec-Pops-of-Love today!) and with overnight lab results reviewed and caught up on medical record entries, I’m way ahead of my routine schedule I kept before I started F3. I’m reminded of that excellent Army slogan -and Marketing Campaign;

“We do more before 9 AM than most people do all day”.
