Traveling

4 or more(?) PAX got in an EC 5k and then 17 total descended upon The Eagle to start the week off. YHC returned after a week of vacation travel, motivated to get back into the swing of things with a movement heavy workout. Warm-up: 20 SSH (IC) 10 GM (IC) 20 IW (IC) 10 […]

Feet off the Ground

Posted on

MLP, Avalanche, and YHC met up at 0500 for a 5K before the main event.  We kept a hard conversational pace, and had a great sprint up Kinsale to close it out.   YHC’s plan for his Bull Q has been coming together nicely. YHC found some new exercises that should lead to a good […]

Weights, Walls, and Runs

Four PAX started off the week with a ~2.5 mile travel through the Oaks in an alternating ruck/run fashion.  This small group returned to Creekside to find 8 additional PAX who were also bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and ready for a beatdown.  The following is what ensued. WARM-UP – SSH, Good Mornings, Merkins (standard & wide), Imperial […]

Staying Out of the Rain

Posted on

6 Pax showed up on a cold and rainy Monday morning just after the Daylight Savings time change, which meant that at least one of us was even sleepier than usual.  The Q really dislikes cold rain, especially when it comes to F3 exercises, which often require laying on the ground.  Therefore, he developed a […]

Legs Day

Three pax ran a 5k+ during EC (0500) when Shake It attempted to take my short-lived all-time crown Up Kinsale and had to settle for a tie.  I’m predicting SI will break the tie during his lunch break today, potentially sooner.  Eleven additional PAX arrived for the Main Event (0530) to get down for LEGS […]

49ers in the rain

Posted on

It was spitting on us, but we were undeterred. As I am weeks away from being respect-worthy in the name-o-ramas, I thought I’d lead us in a celebration of the number 49. To warm up, however, I did whatever number of reps seemed applicable to my creaky, aging joints. Since those joints get especially irritated […]

B.E.A.T. N.D.

Posted on

YHC was looking forward to reconnecting with Dodger for his reunion Q at Kenan…but on Sunday night, when Avalanche did the solid SiteQ duty of reminding YHC that he was on the Q sheet for the Eagle, YHC honored his commitment to serve the Eagle Pax.  Given that YHC is definitely not superstitious, it was […]
