“You either win or you learn. You only lose if you quit!” This was the theme of the day. 8 PAX posted for the new Broga aka Bada’s Bootcamp Beatdown in the gloomy Goodlands of the Badlands. Obviously yesterday was an important day…Taco Tuesday of course…Oh and Election Day thus lots of post-election day mummblechatter. […]

Avoiding Blisters

YHC was surfing through the F3 Nation web site the other day and was reminded of the five principles that define an F3 workout. He wondered – has the pax committed this to memory? (YHC certainly had not, but then did so). YHC’s original plan was to spring a pop quiz on the unsuspecting pax […]

The call went out at 23:01 the night before Tinkle’s Q stating… “Emergency fellas, I just realized I have the Q tomorrow and I’m down in Daytona…can anyone cover for me?” Uh, Oh!!! Preparedness Talk about 11th hour….luckily YHC was still awake working on high-growth startup stuff and since YHC already had the shovel flag, […]

YHC rolls into Davis Park around 5:15 to be greeted by Crash and Happy Feets with his can of Cutter…always clutch on Broga days. 5:29 rolls around and YHC realizes that today the fartsack was strong with a bunch of PAX but nevertheless the discipline of the 4 non-fartsacking PAX has YHC excited because today […]

9 brogason’s unfartsacked themselves to find their center and align their minds to embrace uncomfortableness. As always, triple claps to Happy Feet for mosquito bombing AO (I gotta get me some of that stuff) and for Wahoo bringing the OFF spray. In fact, Wahoo was actually ready to Q broga as their may have been […]

Of Inspiration and Perspiration

Back in The Day (YHC will pause here for the collective “here-goes-the-old-guy-again” groan from the younger members of the reading audience), YHC had the pleasure of engaging in track workouts with his brother-in-law, a runner named John Tuttle.  John had all the talent in the world, as indicated by his times in the 5k (13:48), […]

Piriformis Performance

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

10 PAX posted for Badabroga in the Badlands for an anatomy lesson on stretching and get some myofascial release in the hips, low back and specifically the piriformis muscle. What the heck is a piriformis (see Wikipedia)? Essentially it is the muscle in the gluteal region of the lower limb that can often get irritated […]

Leadership

YHC arrived in the Badlands for his second Q of the week. He surveyed the puddles and decided to push the PAX through the puddles. The weather was muggy with 100% humidity. Mumblechatter consisted of injuries and of the FNG (Mike Ryan) who runs 12 miles a day. YHC would soon find out the FNG’s […]
