Listening to 2 podcasts with Barkley Marathons competitors this week inspired me to try to bring a bit of that insanity to F3.  With apologies to Laszarus Lake and all the tough as nails athletes who have attempted the real thing, here goes-

Warm-o-Rama

I promise I blew a conch at precisely 4:30.  Apparently 23 pax heard it and were ready to go at exactly 5:30 AM

Mosey to an empty lot-SSH, Cotton Pickers, Windmill, Finkle swings

Mosey to the bus lanes

The Thang

The goal of Barkley is of course 5 laps.  in 32 years only 15 men have achieved that goal.  Our goal was also 5 laps.  After a quick explanation  of  Barkley to the PAX, we jumped into it_

3-windsprints of 10 bus lanes.

run around the school to the top of the parking lot-40 gorilla humpers

run down the hill and and back up 3 times

run through the parking lot to the base of the stairs-40 Lunges 20/leg

Run up the stairs 3 times

Run around the school and back to the start-40 wall jumps

Lap 1 complete

Rinse and repeat

It was a good showing by all today.  The whole PAX got 2 laps.  Everyone but Manning missed the cutoff and had to hear the bugle on lap 3.  Manning gets a Fun Run!  Nomad got close, but touched the gate after time.

 

Mosey to the flag for Mary and Name O Rama-

 

Welcome Spanx and Serena!

Prayers for Homeboys Dad and proof that F3 works from Papa John
