A Quick Visit to Butler Hill at Urban Legend

YHC was asked by a good buddy/F3 brother of his to make sure that Urban Legend was challenging as he wanted a good workout today.  I’m not saying it was Brick, but you can guess all you want.  Thumbing through some of those in the vault, the ones with the most suck factors tended to be the ones that involved Butler Hill.  So, YHC decided to include it today.  That was probably a mistake, but too late now.  YHC had to change around his original Weinke quite a bit, because who would have ever guessed it would take 25 minutes to run up Butler Hill and do exercises at each mailbox along the way.  Good stuff today and good to see a couple of the tour guys who had early work days and couldn’t make it.  

Here’s how it went:

Conditions:  Mid-70’s with hell-like humidity
