Spartan Tough 2 – KesselRun

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Spartan Tough 2 – KesselRun 2017.11.20 A crisp 45 degrees didn’t warrant sleeves for Drone but did seem to keep a few brothers in bed this morning – Extra T-Claps to Feud for making his maiden post. Still 5 strong, we went ahead and got after it. The obstacle course theme continues as YHC keeps […]

To Bridge or Not to Bridge

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Humidity was thick, support was low, but we ran fast any way.  Simple workout of running loops with workouts in between to calm the heart and balance it all out.  We added a bridge kicker to the loop, which intensified everything and added an extra quarter mile to each interval.  Regrets?  Ya kind of, but […]

Getting Better – Track Day

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

4 PAX stepped out into “July during December” this AM and decided to go ahead and do an old fashion F3 Track Day. With humidity sucking us down, we lined up and got at it…Why a track day? Glad you asked… interval style running increases speed endurance (faster for longer), makes for better form/more efficient […]

Building Blocks

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

While half dozen PAX ventured down to launch F3Orlando, the rest of us (12 PAX) stepped up to a challenge made of blocks and hills.  YHC has three goals in life – 1)Build better bonds between men, 2)have thighs like Drone and 3)have shoulders like Jumanji… so this w/o covered all three.  Turned out to […]

SeatDown’s Wood

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

With GrowRuck ever present in our minds, 16 JAX PAX strapped on packs and took on some fallen trees.  Due to the growing number of PAX showing up on random Thursdays, YHC could not find a tree long enough for all to participate but two 10 foot trees and a few 2 foot stumps proved adequate […]

One Man to Beat

Drone, we don’t need not stinking Drone… as #KesselRun proved its ability to continue and amazingly grow without our fearless AO leader Drone… whom we did miss dearly while he overcomes the sickness he gained while Super Dadding it over the weekend.  While we did miss the bright white (due to the short shorts) dot […]

JAX PAX got together with families for some fun and down time at the SeatDown chateau.  Even though the normal 4pm FL rain was heavier than usual, it cleared, the day cooled and the party ensued. COP Wait for monsoon to stop Grill 20 lbs of chicken breast Lay out the large amount of food and […]

Short but Sweet Intervals in the Heat

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Bridges and More Bridges 4 PAX cut through the gloomidity and conquered Monday morning with a variety of running intervals focusing on inclines; which means bridges down here in JAX.  The mumble chatter started early as the Q periodically extended the length of the interval on the fly but all talk stopped quick as our […]

F3’s Greatest Hits Played on Random

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

13 PAX answered the call to BOHICA and enjoyed F3’s greatest hits in random fashion.  All pushed through the constant smell of possibly human poo and beat the Q set clock.  (note: it was later found that Zamboni was the unlucky PAX to drag the poo around for 45 min). YHC took some recent, unexpected and […]
