9/11/19 BB – Heavy at The Mutt with Sump Pump – Never Forget

We’ll put in the work and save a few minutes for a moment of silence.Continue reading “9/11 PB – Heavy @ The Mutt – Q Sump Pump”

Blender Back Blast: McAfee Milkshake Meltdown – 7.24.19

Over the past few weeks I have been posting more inside of 264, just to change it up and keep things fresh.

5/15/19 The Blender Pre-blast: Tureen (VQ) Will the streak come to an end?

Gepetto declared I may have the record for most posts without a Q.  That actually sounds pretty great.  Why stop now? I guess you’d better show up tomorrow, in case I decide to keep the streak going.

The Blender BB 4-3-19 Zima Q

The benefit of Q’ing several times is you can pull together a quick idea from your previous workouts, especially from a different AO.  With a light crowd and a different AO, I thought a weinke from last summer would work well at the Mutt.  To my surprise, seven HIMS were there and two of themContinue reading “The Blender BB 4-3-19 Zima Q”

PreBlast for The Blender at The Mutt, an interview with Roosevelt E. Roosevelt

My good friend Roosevelt E. Roosevelt won’t make it to the WO tomorrow, but I called to get his thoughts on the conditions. What do you think about my Weinke Roosevelt? “It’s hot! Damn hot! Real hot!

1/23 Blender @ The Mutt Back-Blast

So as I said in my Pre-Blast I picked up Blueprint’s Q so he didn’t have to Q two out of three days.  He took the bitter cold day on Monday and I took the rainy Wednesday.  The forecast was predicting rain so I planned my weinke thinking we would get wet regardless if weContinue reading “1/23 Blender @ The Mutt Back-Blast”

1/22 Blender @ The Mutt Pre-Blast

Originally Blueprint was going to Q both Monday BO at The O and Wednesday Blender at The Mutt.  I thought I’d make it easier on him and take his Wednesday.  As we all know Monday was bitter cold but dry.  “The Experts” are predicting 75% chance of rain but 47 degrees for Wednesday morning.  I’mContinue reading “1/22 Blender @ The Mutt Pre-Blast”

In my first year of F3, I haven’t lost any weight (that’s on me), my mile time is probably the same and I still struggle with 20+ merkins at a time, but F3 has had a profound effect in my life way beyond the Gloom.  I’ve been in and out of gyms and various bootContinue reading “Back Blast The Blender 12/19/18 Zima Q”

You know it’s going to be cold. Belski says 100% chance of cold but 0% chance of precipitation. Let’s make a liar out him. Join me at the Mutt and we’ll make sure there is enough sweat flowing that they’ll close school because of the ice in the parking lot. You know you prayed it wouldContinue reading “11/14/18 Blender Preblast”

The Blender BB 10/3/18

My apologies to the PAX for being tardy on the BB.  We worked really hard for 45 minutes and then you had to wait more than 4500 minutes for the recap from your Q.

9/12/2018 – The Blender Backblast

After the mass of humanity that showed for the 9/11 backdraft beatdown, I could only wonder if there would be a letdown this morning. I prepared my wienke in a way that it could accommodate 8 or 80. Lucky for me, I got to lead the 8 HIMs that came out and gave there allContinue reading “9/12/2018 – The Blender Backblast”

The Blender Pre Blast 9/12/2018
