YHC was already planning 7-11s on the track when Epoxy reached out last night to see how much running I had planned for Catalyst. Basing my math on 10 laps and a standard track length of 1/4 mile, I told him non-modifiers would cover 2.5+ miles, but there would be plenty of room for modification.
Check for FNGs, give the mission and disclaimer, and warm up:
Side Straddle Hops x20 In Cadence (IC)
Good Mornings x10 IC
Imperial Walkers x20 IC
Sir Fazios… wait… make that TIE Fighters x10 IC Forward x10 IC Reverse (switch up noted by CPA Epoxy, followed by lots of mumble chatter about the “awkwardness” of this exercise)
Monkey Humpers x10 IC
Standard Merkins x10 On My Down (OMD)
Mountain Climbers x10 IC
Downward Dog calf stretches
World’s Greatest Stretch
1) Mosey to the track for 7-11s: Elevens of Merkins and Burpees with Little Baby Crunches (LBCs) x7 at the midpoints
2) Mosey back toward starting point, but stop on the grass island in the back parking lot for Jack Webbs and stay for Mary
Dolly x20 IC
Freddie Mercury x20 IC
Homer to Marge x20 IC
Dying Cockroach x20 IC
Rosalita x20 IC
American Hammer x10 IC (my back had had enough)
Have A Nice Day
Oakwood Cemetery is hosting a virtual 5K to raise money to make up for tour money that hasn’t been coming in during COVID. Frey Daddy is organizing a group run during Black Ops on March 14.
Frey Daddy is also organizing an ultra trail run on March 20. If this is the first you are hearing about it, it is too late to start training (haha) but they would appreciate volunteers.
Nice words from Epoxy acknowledging YHC’s posting and Qing efforts and how other PAX are being inspired to post more. I know I’m loving that old faces have been coming back out in the gloom.
Prayers for Castaway’s friend’s son Lee and his family; Prayers for Creeper and Vortex’s surgeon friend; Prayers unspoken
YHC took us out
Soooooo…. quite a few GPS watches reported 3.5+ miles. Even with the trip to the track, 2.5+ miles seems to be quite the underestimate.
Later at Coffeeteria, I learned from Lamp that the dimensions of the Carroll track are known to be non-standard.
I really appreciate what Epoxy said and if I’m helping get guys back out, that’s awesome.
As of yesterday, I’ve lost 25 lbs from my peak.
Good luck to My Precious on his Coggins 4/4/48 challenge! I can’t take credit for altering the workout to support him, but I’m glad it worked out.
This was my twentieth #F3Q21 #2021Challenge Q. Next stop is The Rock on 3/9 (Tuesday)
