What is a Pogue? — a working class kid
What is a Kook? — a lazy, punk kid
So what are you?
Oh man was it sticky this morning. Any time the Temperature at 5:15am is 73 degrees and the dewpoint is 73 you know it’s going to be sludge. Kind of like swimming in ocean but hot and miserable.
Speaking of the Ocean, have you seen Season 2 of Outer Banks yet? It’s the 2021 version of Goonies / National Treasure with that coming of age high school/college feel. Cheesy, bad acting, and I love it. I stayed up til midnight before this workout finishing season 2 so it was definitely on my mind this morning and while writing this backblast.
DiCCS were given (Disclaimer, Cell phone, CPR, Safety)
5-4-3-2-1 and 4-3-2-1 Fartlek
Recovery run for 5 minutes
Recovery run for last 5/6 minutes
Finished! I think everyone had somewhere between 5 and 7 miles
The Fartlek workout can be great for any group and groups with varying speeds because the goal isn’t distance, but time. With the middle school loop and the COT parking lot acting as an equalizer we could have pax of varying speeds finishing each rep at about the same time.
Hoping that the three amigos of LRC are ok as only Smithers and Foundation made the long drive over
Ghosted came in hot, disappeared for half the workout (we’ve all been there), but still put in a lot of make up work and was moving.
Where are the rest or your “Antelopes” Premature? Great work today.
Dasher thought I was the AD coming in on the back side of the school before the workout as he pre-ran the Express, who does that!
Atlas has come two weeks in a row, doesn’t matter if you have to leave early to get kids off, the work will pay off, great job.
I am looking forward to what John B and the rest of the pogues get into next season. The ending episode sure left some cliffhangers, won’t give it away.
