8/14 Fast Twitch Pre-Blast

Since I rarely, if ever, venture over to Fast Twitch (co-site Q at Skunkworks), I spent some time on Saturday doing some reconnaissance work.  One lesson learned is that when you’re mapping a running route, you are best served to do it from either a computer or vehicle. Otherwise, you may end up running MUCH further than anticipated!  That being said, I’m looking forward to my BRR-friendly VQ on Tuesday.

I’d like for all the FT regulars and BRR trainees to use Tuesday morning as a chance to show off your skills!  We will have a 4, 5, and 6 mile option and I’m recommending that you run it as close to race pace as possible.  It’ll be a good test, but not so much that you can’t post a solid time.

Everyone will do a warm-up jog up Providence Rd to Raintree Rd, then over to the intersection of Four Mile Creek.

Below are the race options:

4 miler— South on Four Mile Creek, left on Fairway Ridge (1st time you come to it), right on Four Mile Creek, right on Whitehorn, end at intersection of Raintree Rd.

5 miler— Same as 4 mile course, but continue by turning left on Raintree Rd and going back to the intersection of Four Mile Creek, right on Four Mile Creek to bottom of hill at apartments, then back to intersection of Raintree Rd and Whitehorn.

6 miler— Same as 4 mile course, then continue by making a left on Raintree Rd., another left on Four Mile Creek (same as initial start), left on Whitehorn, then finish at intersection of Raintree Rd.

Upon completion of your chosen course, mosey back to launch via Raintree Rd and Providence Rd and complete the following exercises (time permitting):

5 sets of 20 x 30 x 40 — merkins, squats, LBCs.

Looking forward to trying to keep up with you horses!  See you in the gloom…
