Preblast: Devil’s Turn – It’s time again for hills

It is time for Devil’s Turn to go back to the hills of Piper Glen.  The PAX should be recovered from the hills overload leading up to the BRR and are ready to bask in their heightened fitness.

Let’s revisit our metric for the hills which was 1 mile of warmup and then pegging “Marathon” pace for the remainder of the workout.  This is the goal.  Find your “Marathon” training pace at

We will start in the greenway parking lot at the corner of Rea Rd. and Bevington Place at 5:15 am and proceed into the apartment loop coming back by the parking lot in case you are late.  We then will proceed south on Rea Rd toward Piper Glen to finish the 1 mile warmup.  It is then on like donkey kong for an additional 3 to 6 miles.

If you are new to Devil’s Turn or if you still get lost in Piper Glen, have a look at the original post for directions through the confusing twists and turns.  Original Post  It may be wet tomorrow, so chalk may be of limited use.

Note 1: Piper Glen is dark, you will be teary eyed from intense speed, and O2 deprivation will be present.  Wear your headlamps.  If you don’t want to get hit by cars, wear blinky lights.

Note 2: If you would like a 4-mile pre-run out to SCMS and back, meet at 4:45 am ready to run.  This is the last week of this ridiculousness so take advantage of this opportunity while you still can.  Pace will be quick but approachable.

What exactly is a quick but approachable pace?

Maybe it’s kinda like Adam Sandler’s medium pace?
