Fartlek Hills


A long weekend away and YHC was ready to get back in the swing of things. Not being able to decide between doing hills or speed work today, I decided we could do both and make everyone happy. The PAX was excited to hear the plan and took off as a group of 10, leaving Hermie on his own to hide in his burrow at the bottom of Twin Team. We stayed as a pack into Tarrington and went up and down some hills with varying effort, lengths of time, pickups, and hills. Note to the PAX don’t let Marmaduke lead the pace on downhill cool down sections. Also, don’t leave your front door open so your dog can see 10 men running by at 0530, the dog might go nuts and wake up the whole house, just an observation.

Prayers for various friends and family of the PAX , including Marmaduke’s mother, that are going through treatments, illnesses and hard times.

YHC, POG and Honeymoon are heading to Smith Mountain Lake for a weekend in April to run the Blue Ridge Half Marathon. If anyone wants to join, let me know. Races with lengths from 1 mile to 2x marathon available on the trip as well.

    Great run Rosie, covered a lot of ground for us low mileage folks but made it feel doable.

  2. Enjoyed that one Rosie! Impressive how you found a route where we went uphill both ways. Running round and round the roundabout gave me flashbacks of when I got lost first time posting at river run. Duke and Bullseye both set a strong pace when they were up front.
