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 […]

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 […]
