Fourteen of RVA’s finest came out for some post holiday miles.
Around the lake and take the access road beside the baseball field to the parking lot. Cross the parking lot and cut through the fraternities taking the door in the fence to Baldwin.
Left on Baldwin to Rock Creek. Left on RC, left on Forest, right on University Blvd. Take a right on Nalla.
4s – turn around at Patterson and return on the same route.
5s – cross Patterson and take Santa Ana to Camden. Left on Camden, left on Rolando, and right on Santa Ana. Cross Patterson and retrace you steps back to the VSF.
6s – cross Patterson and take a left on Rolando to Parham. Right on Parham and a right on Holy Hill. Left on Maywood and and right on Santa Ana. Cross Patterson and retrace your steps back to the VSF.
Shakedown took us out.
YHC ran a route similar to this one for high school cross country training. Except that route originated at the high school and wrapped through UR and looped back to Freeman. Running with Shakedown, Hutton, and Swirly was like the group I ran with in high school too, except we are slower and possibly more mature. Emphasis on possibly.
Needless to say, good mumble chatter with this group ranging from ruck designs to Friday’s game.
It sounds like there were detours and alternate routes executed by the other Pax, but all returned safely and on time.
Question for the Pax: What goes on in the 6-mile and 4-mile groups? Is the 6 mile all business at maximum speed? YHC is curious.
