Triple the Fun


Nineteen eager pavement pounders gathered at the commons and watched Circle K drive around looking for a parking spot. Lug Nut apparently came in hot and missed the festivities so he threw his own party. As expected, directions were withheld until T-minus 30 seconds. Run as a group through fraternity row and gather at the base of Horsepen and Waveny.

The Thang
Intervals up Waveny. 1 minute up at about 75% intensity and recover back to the bottom in 1:45. Repeat x4.

Mosey up to Shrewsbury. Long intervals up Horsepen. 2 minutes up at whatever intensity you feel appropriate and recover back to the bottom in 3:00. Repeat x3.

Saunter up Shrewsbury, paying homage to Toga. Left on Ridge Top and stop at Chandler. Time for 1 more 1 minute interval for those that want it.

Head back via Gardiner and back by the stadium.

Numbers, names, and YHC took us out.

Fantastic numbers for Spider Run this morning and enthusiasm was high for the route which never came. Some were surprised, some were not. Either way we all had fun (no report from Lug Nut on his fun factor).

Someone may have coined the term Splintervals today. Not sure if that was a new term or something that people talk about in back channels when Splinter isn’t present. I’ll take it as a compliment until someone tells me otherwise.

Intervals up Horsepen were difficult, especially after Waveny. All in all, I enjoyed this variation on intervals and the selective polling I did seemed to indicate the enjoyment was 100%.

Enjoy the day fellas.




  1. I am walking like Abe Vigoda this morning.

    Splintervals did not disappoint….meaning they were as painful as I had expected. Good to have them in the rotation however – a necessary evil administered by our resident sadist.

  2. Wedding Singer on

    I coined it, actually enjoyed the Splintervals. Won’t tell you what other people say outside your presence.

  3. I feel honored to have a workout approach with my namesake.

    As for all other comments I am unaware of, please keep them that way.

    Splintervills baby !
    Well done guys – way to push this morning.
    See ya in the gloom..

  5. Nothing like “easing” myself back in the routine with some Splintervals. That said, I couldn’t be happier! Great to get back in the gloom.
