A single, hearty, midwesterner Pax arrived via car 10 minutes early to Batteau this am for a 45 minute beatdown involving touching trees, chucking a slab of granite around in the snow, snowy sprints, a variety of animal crawls, and isometric bar hangs. Said details will be saved for his next Q.
After consulting with the M and checking the forecast, YHC decided that it would be best to not run the 2.6 miles to and from the AO this morning. YHC is comfortable running on ice, but ice + dark + very cold + alone is not a safe combo. So, YHC decided to drive to the workout and was looking forward to some frosty fellowship. But none of the regulars (Hardywood, Swirly, Wheelbarrow, Wedding Singer, EF Hutton, Flipper) were brave enough to venture out. It was cold for Virginia, but YHC has run at below zero conditions in Michigan, so this was relatively warm in comparison. Clothing: 5 layers on top (one shed during the workout), LBTs with shorts overtop, a thin hat, balaclava and face mask, thick wool socks, and trail shoes. It actually wasn’t cold once I got moving.
