No Respect at #TheCastle

Still, no respect, but getting closer 11 PAX arrived at #TheCastle on the first day of spring to get better. Sub 40-degree temperatures made it feel more like winter, but the PAX pushed through. YHC scoured Backblasts from different AOs to see what pleasantries were available. YHC was also one-year closer to official F3 Respect …

Bull 45

6 PAX emerged on this glorious Monday morning, shedding both the lure of the #Fartsack and the residual fallout of Daylight’s Savings to post at the The Bull. The Bull is timeless; whether you have posted there every week or, like YHC, taken off several months between visits to The Bull, this AO still kicks …

Leg Day at Woodshed 2/5

5:30 am 47 degrees-ish Today’s lesson will be all about leg exercises – in particular those PAX often neglect which are crucial to running – hips, glutes, calves, and core with a dose of stability work. Most done in isolation per side. Why running? That’s my primary. And I’m the Q so we do what …
