Pre-Blast – Jolly’s Back At The Nest – 04/10/2021

Looking forward to tomorrow. Work has kept me out of the gloom except on Monday, which was led by Pelican at the BlackOps in LaGrange. So, one (not me, but I’m sure Jewel or Dauber would say this – maybe even Squid) could argue I haven’t worked out at all this week. We will beContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly’s Back At The Nest – 04/10/2021”

Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 03/19/2021

Whitney put a plea out there for an audible on his Q and I waited for a little bit, but to make sure Whitney didn’t start to sweat I went ahead and picked it up. After all, Pleasantville is like my second home. PAX: Gollum Cratchit Tidwell 1Nut Yankovic (R) Holy Roller (R) Edward ScissorhandsContinue reading “Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 03/19/2021”

Backblast – The Max at Bayside – 03/16/2021

I hate running. I’m not really any good at it because it takes a lot of effort to move this much weight and that makes me slow. But, that’s also why I love Qing workouts with lots of running. Because, like I said, I hate running but also acknowledge it as a weakness that I’mContinue reading “Backblast – The Max at Bayside – 03/16/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Max @ Bayside – 03/16/2021

Finally! I’m making it out to Bayside for Iron Horse Challenge and I was lucky to pick up a coveted Q for the visit, too. If you find yourself needing to check this one off the list, too, then I encourage you to come on out and join me because this site is awesome. It’sContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Max @ Bayside – 03/16/2021”

Back Blast – CELEBRATION DAY @ Posh – 03/15/2021

This year marks the 3rd Anniversary of Celebration Day. The first Celebration Day was at Vets in 2019 and then The County in 2020. If that wasn’t bad enough, it happened to fall the day after we sprung forward and changed the clocks an hour ahead – thus, losing an hour of sleep on Sunday.Continue reading “Back Blast – CELEBRATION DAY @ Posh – 03/15/2021”

Pre-Blast – Celebration Day @ Posh – 03/15/2021 – Jolly Rancher Q

Tomorrow brings back the third anniversary of Celebration Day. You may be asking yourself – what exactly are we celebrating? And, for those that missed the first two you’ll just have to come out and join me to find out. Bring a friend and come join in the fun tomorrow at Posh. No coupons required.Continue reading “Pre-Blast – Celebration Day @ Posh – 03/15/2021 – Jolly Rancher Q”

Back Blast – Silo at North Posh – 03/01/2021

Monday is always hard to beat the fart sack. But, when you are done with the workout there’s not a better feeling knowing that you’ve started your week off on the right foot. So next time, don’t let Monday beat you. Get up and get better! At 0530am, time was called. Disclaimers given. Wind wasContinue reading “Back Blast – Silo at North Posh – 03/01/2021”

Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 02/26/2021

What a glorious morning. After completing another large project at work yesterday I was pumped up this morning. I’ve not been able to post that much over the past three weeks and frankly I have felt that physical and mental fogginess. So, I was glad I intentionally scheduled this Q the day after the projectContinue reading “Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 02/26/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Wisteria @ Pleasantville.

Pleasantville. Where all things are pleasant. In fact, I’m pretty sure there was zero accumulation of ice and snow at Pleasantville over the past few weeks. The good news is that doesn’t matter with the latest heat wave we’ve experienced this week. That said, there’s no better time than the present to join me atContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Wisteria @ Pleasantville.”

Back Blast – The Rooster @ The Mutt – 02/23/2021

I was pretty pumped up about this Q. I had headlocked a few guys from work and this was the day they HC’d to post, but it was posting at The Mutt. Ugh, okay – fine. I guess I’ll post at The Mutt. Instead of just posting, I decided to try and pick up theContinue reading “Back Blast – The Rooster @ The Mutt – 02/23/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Rooster @ The Mutt

Looking forward to making it inside of the Watterson Expressway tomorrow for another Q at The Mutt. I wish I could say it was because Digiorno’s recruiting efforts, but in reality I’ve got a couple of co-worker FNGs that I’m expecting to post. And, F-Stop was nice enough to let me steal his Q soContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Rooster @ The Mutt”

Back Blast – The Ruiner at The O – 01/30/2021

A little tardy, but who really counts Sunday? So I’m close enough. I was excited about leading at The Ruiner again, which was my second Q at The O. As noted in my pre-blast, my first one was the day after the Taste of the Tough last fall. And man, that was a bad idea…becauseContinue reading “Back Blast – The Ruiner at The O – 01/30/2021”

Pre-Blast – The Ruiner at The O – Jolly Rancher Q – 01/30/2021

Tomorrow is the 30th day of January 2021. Crazy to believe – time flies. This will represent just my second Q at The O. The first one came the day after the Taste of the Tough back last year. Boy, was that a bad idea. Come join me tomorrow at The O. We will runContinue reading “Pre-Blast – The Ruiner at The O – Jolly Rancher Q – 01/30/2021”

Back Blast – The Tank at The Vets – 01/27/2021

I wish Jeffersontown was closer. I love the vibe and feel of working out at The Vets. Something about the monument and the way it perfectly fits our COP and COT. The flags flying overhead with the reminders on the park benches with words that honor our service men and women. Words like: honor, courage,Continue reading “Back Blast – The Tank at The Vets – 01/27/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Tank @ Vets – 01/27/2021

Tomorrow is Wednesday. The middle of the week. A time where we all evaluate our to-do lists and ponder the things that we should have done on Monday and Tuesday. But alas, there are still Thursday and Friday ahead…plenty of time. So, on Wednesday, perhaps we should just sit back with the cruise control on,Continue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Tank @ Vets – 01/27/2021”

Back Blast – The Extender at The Mutt – 01/21/2021

A couple of months ago, Kilo and I happened to post at The Mutt on the same day because we both had headlocked an FNG. We joked after that it was meant to be a surprise audit of The Mutt and their operations. For those that know the PAX of The Mutt, I’m sure youContinue reading “Back Blast – The Extender at The Mutt – 01/21/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Extender at The Mutt!

’nuff said? Sadly, this is actually going to my first solo Q at The Mutt. Way back in March 2019 I led a co-Q with Zima, which was epic and well before the concept of Co-Q Mash-Up Week. This time, it’s just 100% Jolly. Rumor has it The Mutt loves to run and workout forContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Extender at The Mutt!”

Backblast – Loco at The County – 01/19/2021

I was exactly sure what was going to happen with the weather this morning. I was pleasantly surprised on what I saw when I woke up, which was low 30s with wet ground, but no snow or ice. It was great to see. At 0530am [yes, Pelican – 0530am on Tuesday!] I called time andContinue reading “Backblast – Loco at The County – 01/19/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Loco at The County

As I told the PAX this morning at The Abyss…those looking on the outside in to F3 and what we do may think we are a little crazy. You know, who voluntarily decides to wake up early and go try to workout outdoors in the winter on an ice rink? Because that’s somewhat what itContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Loco at The County”

Back Blast – The Nest @ The County – 01/16/2021

What a great day. We made great time on the pre-ruck with 10 PAX joining in on the extra credit. A few went a little longer than the normal 3.0 mile lap, but that was good enough for me so I could get things set-up a bit. Time was called at 0700am and disclaimers wereContinue reading “Back Blast – The Nest @ The County – 01/16/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Nest @ The County

Looking forward to capping off the week tomorrow at The Nest. To help save you some time, I pulled up the weather forecast and thought I’d share it with you in advance: So, don’t let the #fakenews fool you. Lace up your shoes, put your big boy pants on just like you did this morningContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Nest @ The County”

Back Blast – The Motivator @ The Abyss – 01/11/2021

A little delinquent here – apologies, PAX. The good news is that the Abyss was the place to be on Monday with a record 19 PAX and the most PAX at a WO in F3Louisville on that day, which was another record. The HIM of The Abyss are truly leading in the front. And ifContinue reading “Back Blast – The Motivator @ The Abyss – 01/11/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Motivator at The Abyss – 01/11/2021

I started drafting this as I was sitting in the waiting area to give blood as part of #freedtobleed. Watching all these HIMs step in to fill a need that exists is inspiring. It was also great 2nd F even if only for a little while. Hoping that Qing the day after blood donation isn’tContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Motivator at The Abyss – 01/11/2021”

Back Blast – Moonshiner @ Boondocks – 01/07/2021

As noted in my pre-blast, I was excited to jump at the opportunity to lead a shiny, brand new WO at an existing AO. It’s been fun to see what moving The Station to The Boondocks has done to the Bootleggers at The Boondocks. They’ve captured the Ghost Flag, they’ve stole about 5 or 6Continue reading “Back Blast – Moonshiner @ Boondocks – 01/07/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The INAUGURAL Moonshiner @ The Boondocks

I finally found one benefit about being 1st F Q – you get first dibs on picking up the inaugural Qs at new WOs! Sadly, that may be the only benefit…Nino lied to me. Let’s be honest with each other for a second; being first is awesome. We’re all competitive people deep down and weContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The INAUGURAL Moonshiner @ The Boondocks”

Back Blast – The Nest @ The County – 12/19/2020

I’m on record saying this, but I’ll say it again – The Nest is my favorite workout of the week. It’s a time for a little extra credit, a little longer of a workout, full of 2.0s, and normally lots of banter, mumblechatter and shenanigans. Today would be no different. PAX: DeVito Gisele Bulletin (R)Continue reading “Back Blast – The Nest @ The County – 12/19/2020”

IRON HORSE CHALLENGE 2021 – F3 LOUISVILLE

Thriving or surviving – what a better way to sum up 2020.  If given the choice, I don’t think there’s any question which option every PAX would choose.  This past year has challenged each of us physically, mentally and spiritually.  We’ve had to be agile, be flexible and  be leaders in different ways than weContinue reading “IRON HORSE CHALLENGE 2021 – F3 LOUISVILLE”
