3 sided box?
6 men did a Tempo run through the Burg this morning. There were only 5 of us to start … or so we thought. One showed up a couple minutes late and followed us without any lights or reflective gear … total stealth mode.
The plan was 1 mile easy, 3-4 miles fast, then one mile easy back to base.
We went down Parallel to Patricia. Right on Patricia up to Ridge. Intersection of Ridge and Patricia was about the 1 mile mark and the start of the fast run. Run around Patricia, left on Morehead, then left on Ridge again to the starting point. That’s the 3-sided box.
@Scooter knew loops should have 4 turns, not 3 … so was wondering how this is going to work. Just trust me, this will be the best 3-sided box you’ve ever run.
The route felt like it was up-hill-both-ways for sure. Patricia was up-hill and the first quarter of Ridge was also up-hill. Then Ridge slopes downhill back to the start. 70% of the route felt up-hill with a gift of down-hill at the end.
We all got in what we needed. Not much mumblechatter going on while trying to run fast, but we hung together well, overall.
Glad to have @Clueless with us at the run this morning. These kinds of runs definitely suck, but can quickly make you a faster runner.
@Scooter and @SSMinnow killed it this morning, as expected. That loop was just over a mile and YHC wondered if @Scooter was going to lap him in the short time we were there. It didn’t happen, but a few more loops worth of time and it definitely would have.
@Fig came back out with a vengeance. YHC thought he was going to keep up with @SSMinnow the whole time. That didn’t quite happen, but he was well in front of YHC and killed it.
We saw @BanjoBoy at the end … hiding without lights or a vest. He kept up with us the whole time, but we never knew it until the end. Glad you came out man. Nice work!
