I’d Rather Be Running Devil’s Pitchfork

You know it’s Blue Ridge training season when more pax run to the workout from home than drive in their cars, and you know it’s a good beatdown when someone says they’d rather be running Devil’s Pitchfork. Here’s how it went down:


  • Disclaimer
  • Side Straddle Hop x15
  • Windmill x10
  • Imperial Storm Trooper x10
  • Merkin x10
  • Air Squat x10


  • A = Air Squat x20 OYO
  • B = Burpee x20 OYO
  • C = Curb Dip x20 OYO
  • D = Decline Merkin x20 OYO
  • F = Flutter Kick x20 OYO
  • Run up & over the Ridge and repeato back & forth til time called


  • Mason Twist x15
  • Reverse Crunch x10
  • LBC x10
  • Plank 1 minute
  • Low Dolly x10
  • WWII Situp (10 OYO)


  • Strong work in the humid gloom. I think everyone got at or near 500 reps, and the overachievers got up to¬†750.
  • 3 workout options tomorrow: someone is leading a clowncar to Chicken Foot for BRR prep (sound off below), Acceleration is at HRMS track, and Harrisburg Iron is at Stallings Road Park.
  • 3 workout times on Saturday: Rail Yard at 7am, Bull Run at 6am, and Pre-Bull Run at 5am. After all that, you’ll really need coffee at 8:05.
  • If you’re looking for a #CSAUP that doesn’t involve running stupid distances in the mountains, check out the custom F3 GoRuck Challenge and the opportunity to ruck stupid distances in Fort Mill on May 5, 2017. Five of us from Harrisburg are already HC (me, Kojak, Segundo, Gamma, and Col. Mustard), so come join our team.

    Great challenge this morn. Didn’t mention it @TheRidge, put me down as another who would have rather run Devils Pitchfork.

    Loved the challenge this morning @Gapper! Thanks for the solid lead.

    Much to the M’s pleasure (and @Othello’s as well, who was trudging through the beat down next to me) my IBM Watson shirt was in no condition to live on… it didn’t make it back home… I was forced into a Chippendale run. Is there a lexicon term for finally pushing a garment beyond use??? If not, there should be. Maybe #Hogan, as in Hulk Hogan ripping off his ‘shirt’ beyond further use. I believe you caused @DickTracy to #Hogan his too. Of course, @TBone will #Hogan any chance he gets…

    Nope noooooo way I’d choose the Pitchfork over that.

    Great workout @Gapper but I don’t like your back to school ideas. Do you put the kiddos through this before school starts too??

    Line of the day: “It’s 5:31, you guys can swap recipes later”. Solo Jr(@Clueless)
