Newbie Special: The Campus Tour

Posted on

A baker’s dozen PAX showed up in the gloom Monday morning, a good combination of old-timers like Gordo, Subprime and Weezer and two relative newcomers like TB and One-Dimension. YHC felt the newbies needed to experience one of the oldies-but-goodies from the five year run of the Fetzer/Kenan AO—the Campus Tour. The Thang: Warmup SSH […]

Stepping Up in Kenan Stadium

Posted on

Five PAX gathered in the gloom on Monday at Kenan Stadium, and with temperatures hovering in the upper 50s on a spring morning, conditions were perfect to break a sweat. We welcomed FNG Zane, a senior at Carolina about to graduate with a degree in chemistry. He had come across the Wednesday AM Rameses workout […]

Tar Heel Two-Miler

Posted on

The running of the Tar Heel 10-Miler two days before inspired this morning’s Tar Heel Two-Miler—a knock-off version with plenty of running and lots of body-weight exercises crammed into 45 minutes. Warmup: SSH x 20, Windmills x 10, Willie Mays Hays x 10, Arm Circles forward and backward x 10 each, Merkins x 10. The […]

After the rain, comes the gloom…

Posted on

A good morning for 7 PAX to get their week started off right. YHC was slightly nervous but eager for his second Q. It all went down like this: Warmup SSH (20) Windmills (10) Willie Mays Hayes (10) Arm Circles (10 each direction) Slow merkins (10) Mosey to Hooker Fields PAX split into group 1, […]

Springtime Sweat

Posted on

The dawning of April brought 0545 temperatures of 60 degrees—quite a contrast from that three-week run of consecutive readings at 17-18 degrees around the holidays. So it felt great for 10 PAX to work up a sweat running the stairs in Kenan Stadium Monday morning. The Thang: Warmup SSH x 20, Willie Mays Hays x […]

Successfully coming down the Pyarmids

Posted on

YHC saw that the #Kenan Q was open on his birthday and jumped on it.  YHC had some unfinished business to attend to and saw this as an opportunity for redemption. 11 Pax arrived with Hobby making his 3rd AO in just over a week.  We started a fellowship pace mosey down to the Loudermilk […]

Not Cold and Wet

Posted on

As much as you plan a workout, you can’t control the elements, and it was looking pretty grim as YHC set the alarm clock last night. Spooked by @wheezer’s request to move to a parking deck due to “cold and wet”, YHC spent the wee hours listening to the rain and coming up with an […]

Sunrise in Kenan

Posted on

The last Monday of standard time allowed 10 PAX to enjoy a workout in Kenan Stadium with the run rising during the last half of the workout—a pretty neat effect. By next week that hour will have been shifted to the end of the day, so it was nice to get a little blue sky […]

A Melody of Memories

Posted on

9 PAX got their week started with a soggy variety hour (45 minutes) at Kenan. Some of YHC’s fondest F3 memories are from his early post at Kenan (formerly Fetzer) and those beat downs inspired today’s return visit. Warm-up 25 x SSH (IC) 10 x Good Morning (IC) 10 x Merkins (IC) 20 x MC […]

Get Jacked Like Millard Fillmore

Posted on

Warm up (SSH, AC, IW, Walk-Out Merkins, Everest, BWS).  Little known fact – Warren G. Harding used to start cabinet meetings w/ this same progression.   The Thang: In honor of our presidents I busted out the 1 foot speed hurdles.  FDR was an avid speed hurdler, but his foot speed was apparently no match […]
