Solo Battle Q

YHC has missed Battle for the last few weeks based on gaining more miles on the weekends. Rotation was up for a Co-Q with Misfire, but he has a back injury that kept him grounded. There is a reason Battle uses a CO-Q approach, and the Pax demand all out intensity for the full hour. …

The Tunnel Of Love

Conditions: Warm 8 pax weren’t scared off by the prospect of a trip through…DUH DUH DUH!!!…the Tunnels. Personally, I’ve always found Leesburg more concerning in the gloom, but regardless, we all survived. Alas, YHC created the route without Strava, and thus I overestimated the distance slightly, so most completed somewhere from 3.8-4.2 miles, with some …

Battling on Rutland

Another Saturday at #Battle where limits are pushed, sanity is questioned and the #DRP is served in a manner akin to drinking water from a fire hydrant. This week featured a return home of one of F3 Columbia’s finest, morning fog, questionable decisions and an #IrishGoodbye. With both YHC and his co-Q, who each tend …

Woodshed Campus Tour

The Woodshed PAX started their workout with a clear 33 degree morning, as always not knowing what was in store for them.

SwampFox 2-1-2018

Four faithful PAX showed up in the gloom to do some work.  The cold morning air (33°F) quickly seemed to warm-up and what seemed like a relatively easy workout plan quickly got rather painful.  The PAX pushed through the pain and completed the workout like real champions. If you missed it, you shouldn’t have… Warm-up …
