The BackBlast:

Conditions:  High 40s and rainy

WU: On the soccer field, dynamic warm-ups:  accelerations, back pedals, side shuffles, crossover steps, Hi knees, butt kickers.
Then one lap around a half mile loop from Eagles Landing, down Cuyler to Fillmore over to Harvey, then back on Harvey.

MarioKart:

From a staggered start with faster runners up front, we ran continuous loops around the above half mile track.

Rules:

Corners: Each corner represents a banana peel for the first three racers.

  • 1st place: 10 burpees
  • 2nd place: 20 lunges
  • 3rd place: 10 lunges

Passing: When passing another racer from behind you can (but you don’t have to) hit them with:

  • Turtle shell: 20 merkins OR 20 squats
  • Magic Mushroom: 1/2 block sprint

Immunity:

  • You cannot get shelled or ‘shroomed while performing exercises
  •  You can opt for walking lunges as a delay tactic to avoid being shelled
  • You can only be shelled by a given racer once per lap

Results:

Despite the rain, nobody melted during this rerun of this #Footloose Classic.  We covered about 3-4 miles.  The banana peels and turtle shells kept our group relatively close together with everyone finishing more or less within sight of each other.  A good time had by all.

 

CoT:  in the absence of anything super meaningful to say, we got to know each other better by hearing the F3 origin stories of a couple of our Pax.

HatTip to Footy for a great idea!
