9 Pax including one virgin Spider Runner gathered for some hill repeats on a warmish March morning.
Route: Nice and easy lap around the lake, followed by gathering at the bottom of Towana Rd. Run up to the intersection of Campus Dr. and back down in repeat. The Pax was instructed to focus on running the downhills at good speed, but resting as much as possible on the ups. Return to the start.
COT-YHC took us out.
Strong running today, gents. We were missing a few of the regulars (Swirly who is in an air cast?!) and TYA who headed up to DaVille this morining. But it was nice to see Wedding Singer, who has been working on his running lately, come out for the first time. Be assured, Singer, this was not a typical Spider run. Saab as usual crushed the hills, and Splinter made good use of his long strides on the steeper portions of the route. The downhills presented a good challenge and a good quad-thrashing for all, including YHC.
This is a good type of workout to work in regularly as we head to BRR training season–it will help us be strong on the downhill parts of the course.
