PB 12-1-2022 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q

Welcome to December, Gents. Tis’ the season! With all of the joy of Christmas that is upon us, we will sing carols and hold hands for the entire 45 minutes….. not likely. We will, however, work and suffer together. What else would you want at an F3 workout? Bring a coupon. Some running will beContinue reading “PB 12-1-2022 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q”

BB – 11-22-2022 The Stable at the Stallion – DeVitto Q

The Stable has exploded since the last time that I was here in May.  In fact, the Stable was not the Stable….yet.   And, it is not near as far from the County as I originally thought i.e. 15 minutes.  Nonetheless, I got to the Stable a bit early to prepare for the beatdown.    COP: Continue reading “BB – 11-22-2022 The Stable at the Stallion – DeVitto Q”

11/12/2022 The Nest at the County: DeVitto Q

The weather has turned cold but the HEAT will be on tomorrow. It won’t be a coupon extraganza but they will be used. We boys at the County even have a stash of coupons should you forget to bring one. We might also have a bit of an anatomy lesson, focusing on agonist and antagonistContinue reading “11/12/2022 The Nest at the County: DeVitto Q”

11-2-22: DeVitto Q: The Bridge @ Poshland

1st Q at the Bridge and the plan is not to take anybody’s soul tomorrow. (For those wondering, tomorrow is All Souls Day). However, we will work hard but won’t be doing a lot of running. Strength is the name of the game tomorrow with some hot tempo at times. Bring a coupon/ruck and anContinue reading “11-2-22: DeVitto Q: The Bridge @ Poshland”

BB 5-18-2022 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q

I was glad that Meter Maid asked me to Q a Foundry Workout.  It has been way too long and the time was right.  I was getting a little lazy with certain things going in my life i.e. not being the best person that I could be, not putting out my best effort, etc.  WhenContinue reading “BB 5-18-2022 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q”

5-18-2022 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q

Now that my running season has taken a slight pause, I am eager to get back out to the Foundry to lead a hard, yet effective strengthening routine. This one will be a grinder, but relatively joint-friendly i.e. non-running. That does not mean easy! Come on out and enjoy the comfortable temps in the morning!Continue reading “5-18-2022 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q”

BB 2-3-2021 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q

It seems like it rains every Thursday at the Agony!  Despite the rain, 4 HIMs braved an annoying light rain and got some good, up temp work accomplished.   We also learned that the Beatles first hit “ I want to hold your hand” was recorded on this date in 1964.   Thus, the Beatles was theContinue reading “BB 2-3-2021 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q”

BB 12.24.2021 The Gladiator at the Abyss

Who does not love the day before Christmas? Being off work, enjoying the time with friends and family, etc. all add to the eager anticipation of Christmas, the day our savior came into the world. The weather was un-Christmas-like, but who could complain with 50 degree temperatures! I am not sure if the HIMs whoContinue reading “BB 12.24.2021 The Gladiator at the Abyss”

12.24.2021 The Gladiator at the Abyss

Santa will be swooping into the Abyss tomorrow morning as he makes his trip around the globe. He plans to bring some mad beats so that can make room for all the treats that you will eat over the next week (or day). Speaking of treats, there will be doughnuts and coffee after. Trust me,Continue reading “12.24.2021 The Gladiator at the Abyss”

Back-Blast: The Agony at the County – 11.11.2021 – Little Jerry Veteran’s Day Q

 Wherever you were for this morning’s post on this Veterans Day, you were not the timid, you were a man in the arena.  We ended with this favorite quote of mine from Teddy Roosevelt… “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or whereContinue reading “Back-Blast: The Agony at the County – 11.11.2021 – Little Jerry Veteran’s Day Q”

BB 9/22/21 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q

I have not been to the Foundry in awhile …. And now I know why I miss it.  I love the heavy workouts and they are ones that you can do anywhere.  What’s even better is when you have few good HIMs who can join you for a beatdown!  This week must be monsoon weekContinue reading “BB 9/22/21 The Foundry at the County – DeVitto Q”

PB 9-9-21 Iron Pax Week 1 The Agony (at the County)

Rabbit hunting starts (and hopefully ends) tomorrow. Bring coupons and gloves. We will be on the green space. We will do a brief warm-up to allow for time for the workout. (My guess is that it may go past 6:15). If you need more time to warm-up, then get there a bit earlier. This mightContinue reading “PB 9-9-21 Iron Pax Week 1 The Agony (at the County)”

PB 9/2/2021 Iron Pax Week 0 – The Agony at the County

The suspense is over. Iron Pax is here! (Woof….) Come out to the County at 5:30am tomorrow for the Week 0 workout. No coupons, but there will be copious amounts of Merkins and Running (about 3.25 miles of running if doing the non-modified version). I will have the workouts (modified and non-modified versions) on theContinue reading “PB 9/2/2021 Iron Pax Week 0 – The Agony at the County”

BB 8/26/21 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q

Installment #4 of Q School week at the Agony turned out to be an adventure around the County.  Temps were a bit tepid but bearable (and even if they were not, we would have managed because that’s what we do – rain or shine, hot or cold – “it don’t matter”).  We called the time,Continue reading “BB 8/26/21 The Agony at the County – DeVitto Q”
