Decent size group this morning, lucky number 13 strong.
Mosey to Dreamchasers to circle up.
Mosey across bridge to South Main St. BBQ (in my opinion best ice cream in Waxhaw, sorry Creamery, and second in Charlotte only to Two Scoops). Edit: Honorable mention also includes: Dollar Cone (although it’s like $1.50 now but the value w/ two toppings can’t be beat).
Run down S. Providence to South Providence School.
Cemetery Hill Run x 3
Mosey to start of Southside Cemetery (“big dipper loop”).
Mosey to Southside Cemetery “horseshoe loop”.
Mosey back to start of Bad Idea hill, 10 squats, run to school, 10 Mike Tysons at top on the school wall
Run back to the best ice cream in Waxhaw.
Cross the bridge as group, mosey back to AO.
30 seconds left, 5 more burpees
I wanted to check out the Southside Cemetery this morning on my prerun to make sure the paths were in good condition. I forgot about the speed bump on Arbor Dr. and had the pleasure of taking out both kneecaps before the workout even started. Everyone worked hard this morning. Bottlecap was looking strong and then started to show his age when he pulled his back while only running downhill. Hopefully it’s just a pulled muscle and you will be back out soon. Thanks Posse for escorting him back to the AO. Everyone else pushed hard this morning, good to see Kid Rock out at more WUC posts. I think the Southside Cemetery offers some good opportunities for future workouts that are car free. Welcome FNG Hummingbird! Thank you for the opportunity to lead on cool morning.
Bottlecap is OUT for Clinet Dinner tonight and needs a substi-Q.
I’m sure Dancing Bear and his daughter are still collecting travel size shampoo and soap for shelters, keep em coming.
Not everyone packed up their station wagon and headed out of town with their 15 kids like Rubbermaid and so 7 PAX showed up on a perfectly crisp 45 degree Monday morning of Spring Break week in WUC.
5:15 am DCCS reviewed. Time to move, lots of ground to cover
Mosey to front of high school and circle up for a quick warm up:
1. 15 x SSHs IC
2. 15 x Imperial Walkers IC
3. Calf Stretches each leg 15 second
4. 10 x Merkins IC
Mosey across Cuthbertson to entrance of Champion Forest.
Run down Waynewood to intersection with Dobson. At alternating stoplights…. stoplights in Champion Forest?!?…. maybe YHC meant streetlights…
• 10 x Merkins
• 10 x Squats
If you continue down Waynewood or Dobson they intersect again in about .51 miles. Pax pair up and one partner goes down Waynewood while the other goes down Dobson until they intersect. The idea was a hard steady pace that wasn’t a sprint but not a mosey either.
1. 10 hand slap Merkins with partner when you meet back up at the next intersection of Waynewood and Dobson
2. Mary and pick up the six so we can all start the next .51 repeat together.
3. Rinse and repeat opposite directions back up to the other intersection of Waynewood and Dobson.
4. Total of 6 x .51 miles repeats completed
Mosey back to entrance of Champion Forest to the actual stoplight. Pick up six and fast mosey back to AO. I think everyone got around 6 miles with some 6.5+
The goal of the day was to try to get everyone over 5 miles if not 6 while getting in some speed work that wasn’t on a track. Champion Forest is a practically perfect .51 miles from every intersection symmetrical neighborhood so perfect for this type of workout… and a not on a track.
Great to see Ice 9 post at Ignition, I think it was his first time posting at this AO and he was really pushing the pace. Hollywood out front as always and there is a reason why Legal has a “Zoom” after his name.
Fellow cresters Dancing Bear and Zinfandel are getting faster and leaner and I think both got in 6 miles. Cobbler back out for a second week in a row and really pushing himself, great job.
Thanks for the opportunity to lead this AM.
