Shackleton’s Adventure

Posted on

9 PAX showed up at Tabacco Road ready to celebrate birthdays. Two, Sweats and Toolbox, were so ready, that they showed up early for a 4-mile ruck. In honor of Brick’s birthday, he was given the power to stop the workout at any point and have the group do burpees. The rest of the workout […]

Surviving and Thriving at Tobacco Road

Posted on

I am reading a book, “Deep Survival,” by Laurence Gonzalez, which addresses the question of who lives and who dies and why when faced with extreme circumstances.  In a survival situation, there are things one must do to prevail, and most cannot do them.  A navy seal commander in the book tells the author, “the […]

Pushing and Pulling through the 1st of the Month

Posted on

On a cold, crisp morning, with a brilliant nearly full moon, recently recovering from its own total eclipse yesterday morning, 5 Pax overcame the fartsack to post at Tobacco Road. YHC was reprising a similar workout he Q’d at Tobacco road about a year ago, but wanted to integrate some music….and given the recent upset […]

5 rounds of 5

6 PAX gathered at a frosty Tobacco Road.  All were layered appropriately, except for Cardiac, who is too fast for the cold to catch.  Looking for inspiration last night, YHC discovered that January 25th is National Florida day, National Irish Coffee day, and National Opposites Day.  This proved to be little help as the thought […]

Escalator and Questionable Cadence

Posted on

11 PAX, probably inspired by the warmer temperatures, posted in the gloom for a @Red October Q. Unfortunately, RO had to swap with YHC due to a personal issue, so YHC had to come up with an impromptu Q at the last minute. Fortunately, this isn’t YHC’s first rodeo. He has a ready-made Q for […]

Time to Celebrate!

Posted on

Tobacco Road is sort of my home field, being that it is so close to where I live. Naturally, it is the AO I selected to celebrate turning 30 (woot woot!) even though that is not until tomorrow (plus it is close enough that if I over sleep I still might make it in time, […]

Workin’ For the Man

As everyone knows, this is the busy time of year for yours truly as I spend my days trying to help out the fat man in the red suit get ready for the 25th. It’s a nonstop grind that has you wishing it was New Year’s Eve already. So this year I thought I would […]

12 Burpees of F3 strikes again

Posted on

The holiday sprit was in full force this morning… until the workout was announced “The 12 Burpees of F3”.  The brave band of brothers excitedly took up the challenge.  As a brief warm up we did some SSH, mtn. climbers and merkins.  Then we did 1 rep each of the 12 varieties of burpees that […]

Mr. McGiblet’s Wild Adventure

Posted on

I’m sorry for the very late backblast on this Thanksgiving morning workout. The tryptophan from dinner wiped me out. Thank you for everyone that came out on a very dark and cold morning. Although it was a holiday, we had a great turnout. A special guest: Mr. McGiblets, joined us for the workout. Warm up: […]
