11-16-19 The Hurt at The Mutt Backblast

Sump Pump sent out a slack message saying he was injured and needed someone to take his place for his Q.  I don’t get a chance to make it out very often on Saturdays so I decided to be the next man up.  I wanted to keep moving to stay warm, have some fun butContinue reading “11-16-19 The Hurt at The Mutt Backblast”

Preblast 11-16 The Hurt at The Mutt

Next man up!  That’s what we say when the starter is injured.  That’s sorta the way it’s been for my beloved Boilermakers since we’re currently on our walk-on 4th string QB, but I digress.  When Sump Pump messaged a few of us saying that he was on the DL and he needed a back upContinue reading “Preblast 11-16 The Hurt at The Mutt”

Back Blast – Extender @ The Mutt

It was a brisk 30 Degrees this morning when the Q came rolling in at 5:29 to get things started.  There was a little mumble chatter but I came in hot giving the disclaimer as I walked up and immediately moseyed around the school for the Warm-up.

BB – The Hurt – 10.19.2019

PAX (3): Soft Top, No Show, Deuce (Q) Weather: a little chilly, but for mid-October it was pretty nice out there.

When the Rooster call, what do you do? Back Blast – 10.15.19

The Rooster is one of the most unique names for a workout, but I love the premise (or what I assume to be the premise). We don’t get up for easy, and the rooster is typically seen as a wake up call for many, but for others we are often up before the rooster is,Continue reading “When the Rooster call, what do you do?

I’ve heard some chatter during our extended summer that you couldn’t wait for the cooler weather so you could get back out ITG. If 42 degrees isn’t cooler enough, please get with Tron so he can move you off of the Active Pax list. For those still reading, bring your gloves, running shoes and maybeContinue reading “PB 10/17/19 Sump Pump Q – The Extender at The Mutt”

McAfee is bringing the meaning of The Rooster – Pre-Blast 10.15.19

In the Chinese Zodiac, the Rooster signifies honestly and fortitude, both physically and morally. The rooster animal totem is also thought of to be very bossy, but not in a bad way. Tomorrow at the Rooster, I plan to bring something to test your physical fortitude, and you can decide who to let be theContinue reading “McAfee is bringing the meaning of The Rooster – Pre-Blast 10.15.19”

“Alright Tureen, I’ll be at the Mutt tomorrow.

But that’s what we do:Continue reading “Back Blast – 9/28: The Hurt @ The Mutt”

9/28/19 Preblast The Hurt @ The Mutt
