10 PAX came out on a fantastically warm late November morning to work off some calories in an effort to make room for extra turkey. YHC was in the mood for some good ol’ fashion running and so the Weinke was terribly simple and simply terrible at the same time.
Mosey down 51 to Raintree Ln. Stop off in the field for:
The genius road engineers of the 1960’s made Raintree Ln almost an exact 2.5 kilometers. So let’s start with a straight out and back 5K run, nice and simple with no turns to get lost on, and only a few hills. When finished complete 50 flutters (per leg) and run back to pick up the six and finish with them.
Mosey down the road to the ABC lot where the PAX were hoping for a post 5K drink. No such luck at 6am. So partner up with the fastest PAX from the 5K paired with the slower PAX.
P1 Runs parking lot lap ~200M
P2 Runs hills from parking lot to sidewalk.
Flapjack and repeat until each team does 20 hill climbs.
Standard Fast Twitch Indian run back to school with a stop off for LBC’s x 35 IC.
YHC threatened to reuse some bad ideas from previous workouts on Twitter last night. Then in the midst of planning I got a new one. Purple Haze said at the beginning he was hoping we didn’t do the Long Distance Starfish again, maybe he’s second guessing that now.
Turkey Leg, Brady, and Slim Fast had a good 100 yard lead on the PAX at the Providence Road turn. That seemed to widen considerably on the way back as they were lost in the darkness. Strong running. I believe About Time made his FNG post at Fast Twitch and killed it. Hanging with Purple Haze for the 5K. Keep coming back. This workout will keep you warm all winter.
Solid determination by Geraldo and Good Hands for grinding out what has to be a harder 5K route than you’ll find in any regular official 5K race.
The Indian Run back was one of the fastest paces we set out there in a while. Maybe the flat straight run lent itself to speed. Nice finish.
Total distance was right at about 6 miles according to the magic NSA satellites watching every move we made out there. #Solid
Thanks to Brady for the send off and for Hopper sending prayers to Ferguson, MO.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
