On Saturday, Hush Puppy said The Loco needed a Q. I told him if someone didn’t step up, I would take it. Not because I needed another Q for IHC, but I started training for the Derby Half Marathon on Monday. When I trained last summer/fall for the Louisville Half Marathon, I struggled to post regularly. So, this would force me to start this training cycle on the right foot.
It was chilly, somewhere around 20 degrees, maybe colder, maybe warmer. It wouldn’t matter long, as I got things started right at 0530 with Viking, Brown Water, abacus Gisele, Hush Puppy, Jitterbug, and Lady Bird (with Emma of course).
We did a short mosey to the front lot for COP. There we would do some SSHs, Toy Soldiers, Downward Dog, Kenrda Newmans, and Michael Phelps. We then finished the circle back to the original starting point.
At the starting point I laid out the MAIN THANG. It was an AMRAP style workout consisting of 10 Manmakers, 15 Skull Crushers, 20 Curls, 25 Squats, and 30 BBSUs. Then complete one lap around the church (with a modification of around the chapel too.) Then rinse, and repeat. Most accomplished 4 laps I think, with abacus (and his half coupon) making 5 laps I think.
At the beginning, I was convinced that it might be the quietest workout in F3 history. Likely even beating out Pelican’s Q that he asked for silence to raise awareness for his deaf sister, and the real life struggles the deals with. I wasn’t there, but I can only assume that Pelican was talking a lot during that. But after about 2 minutes of quiet, the mumblechatter finally started to flow. Then like clockwork, you couldn’t shut it off. Who knew Harbor Freight could produce so much content for discussion.
With about 3 minutes remaining, we circled up for some MARY.
MARY consisted of LBCs, Flutter Kicks, Shoulder Taps, and a plank for time.
