  • PAX: Rollback

It’s just me and Rollback today.  Rollback had to rollback his fitness level to keep down with me, but this was a great opportunity to bond with someone who is an F3 Pax one on one and while it’s the first time that you met.  He and Madoff post together occasionally at Lake Wylie.  Meanwhile all the Gashouse regulars were ankle deep in a Short Sale CSAUP known as Strides of March.  That’s cool, I’ll look for everybody back on 3/13.



I left Bandit to handle the Painlab.  Rollback and I headed out into the vast open aisles without our pricing guns.  Up to Grier parking lot for some Springtime Back to School savings.

The thang……

Partner Booyah run’s.  Pick a partner, easy enough.  Start about the middle of Grier parking lot we each run to the speed bumps at each end, meet back in the middle and partner social distance Booyah Merkins in ascending order.  Little mumblechatter here except I was kind of talking to myself some, mainly in my head.  We did this for a little while, think we climbed up to eight merkins.

Up to Parkwood Church to see what our CSAUP crew was up to.  I had a warm down planned for them but it was majority consent that during their rest, they would rest.  Rollback and I did some additional partner work while keeping great conversation with the CSAUP Pax.  Go ahead and choose your partner.  Once again, no issue.

Partner 1 mosey while partner 2 does 10 merkins and holds plank.  Rinse and repeat with squats (Al Gore), heels to sky (6″ hold) and Crab crunch (or something like that and hold reverse plank).  Rinse and repeated for a few more and moseyed further into the Parkwood lot.

On our own here we moseyed a distance and got a good feel for the route.  Next plan is to mosey out and sprint back.  Rinse and repeat three times.

Bye to the fellas, over to FPC.

You take the High Road and I’ll take the Low Road.  More partner work, think we have this handled by now.  Partner 1 runs long distance and Partner 2 goes the short distance, merkins and then can rest until partner 1 returns.  Rinse and repeat with squats and a few others.

Late stage of the morning by now, think it was getting close to head back to the Schiele.  Made it with a minute to spare, Rollback was concerned he did not see any Painlab Pax, figured he missed out on an early dismissal but they emerged from the back entrance and we were a group once again.  Fitbit says we got in three miles.
