Death Valley Preblast – The ARBOWIB

Tomorrow, we unleash something that has never been done before. Well, except that it has, and it failed miserably #SOFAWIB, and I never once posted there.

Howevs . . . given that working out at the Arboreteum ABC store draws forth such fond memories of #Jevlar days bygone and knowing that introducing another AMRAP workout on a Wednesday makes no sense whatsoever, I present without delay:

The ArboWIB (seriously, somebody come up with a better name)

  • 5:30AM Launch from SCMS – 1 mile to the Arbo ABC store
  • AMRAP loop consisting of things I will tell you to do tomorrow.
  • 6:05 AM, run 1 mile back

Why hasn’t nobody thunk of this before?

Essay question #4: Compare and contrast this Wednesday’s A51 workout options.
1. Donut Run – Pros: Donuts. Cons: 6 miles. 5:15 start. I usually end up running alone anyway, so why drive away from my house to meet at 5:15 then run back towards my house?
2. WAMRAP – Pros: Not Donut Run. Cons: Waverly is very far away. There has been one glove on the stairwell for a couple of weeks. McGee cheats.
3. Anvil – Pros: Best AO in A51, rowdy group of regulars. Cons: Same AO as my usual Saturday post. No donuts or other food options.
4. Gumby – Pros: N/A. Cons: Only dudes doing yoga.
5. Death Valley – Pros: Solid preblast from Horsehead. Cons: Worst AO in A51 (so running away from it right away is actually a Pro). Lots of private school soccer talk. No food options.

Gummy, if you’re willing to run a mile with snacks then the world is your oyster tomorrow.

#RIPSOFAWIB Most talked about workout EVER. Is this what infamous feels like?

Also, DR. Expect to see some sub-6 opening miles and 8+ closing miles on Strava

Kirk. Maybe sub-9 opening and sub 10 closing.
