Davis Lake does Tabata and finds out head lamps are needed now

5 Davis Lake F3ers shook off the fartsack and took the DRP to take on a tabata and circuit workout. This is one of those workouts without a lot of cadence or counted exercises so it’s a great opportunity for you to push yourself in a you vs. you mental challenge as well as physical challenge. Here’s how it went down:

Great working out with you guys this morning, a small and quiet but dedicated group. I haven’t done a tabata in a long time and am glad I was able to introduce something new that hopefully we can repeat. It’s a great high intensity workout. I also liked the cirucit that was in a straight line, you ran past other guys more often and could give encouragement. I did find out that the tunnel and other side of the road are dark now that it’s not the middle of the summer so headlamps would be a good idea if we’re working out there in the future.

My favorite part was after when Piston said after 3 months it’s amazing how there’s still new challenges to take on and workouts to learn. This prompted a discussion of another workout: jugalug which to summarize involves carrying 2 milk jugs in pairs for the entire workout (look for a BB). The best part is Piston and everyone else was excited about taking on this challenge, I love to see the F3 crazy spread!

So Davis Lakers start saving milk jugs and hopefully we can get a Q to lead the workout soon.
