F3 Jacksonville Launches a Run AO!

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 1/4/16
  • QIC: Drone
  • The PAX: Big Bird

Foundations start with a single brick, and Jacksonville’s new run-focused downtown AO launched with two Hate Hates braving the overdue winter weather (i.e. 50 degrees) for some bridge work.

Warmup – lap around Friendship Fountain, alternating butt kicks, high knees, karaoke

The Thang:

Exit FF parking lot onto Museum Circle and under the Interline building

Right onto Acosta Bridge

Right onto Water St.

Right at Landing roundabout onto Main St. Bridge

Right onto Museum Circle

60 sec. rest at roundabout, rinse and repeat

On return to FF, 4x 50 yd. sprints on Main St. Riverwalk underpass

Total distance: 4.0 mi.


  • This was a fairly easy introductory run to test the waters with a few sprints mixed in at the end.  The goal for the next 2 months is to train for the Gate River Run (15K), so we’ll increase distance and mix in speed work within the confines of the 45-minute time constraint.
  • AO name is in the works; hopefully it won’t take as long as #GENESIS!
  • Workout #2 for F3 Jax’s #F3twofiddy; we started at 5:29, so those slackers at GENESIS can take #3
