Goose Roughage


Twelve Tuesday regulars socially distanced themselves using goose droppings as markings. Instructions were given to head up by the football stadium, left on Campus, cross College and through the woods via the immaculate path, then huddle up for today’s festivities.

Interval time. Gardiner was the first challenge. 1 minute up at about 80% and 1:45 recovery back down. After the first interval we collected the 4 milers that got lost and continued with 2 additional reps up Gardiner. One opted to bypass intervals and just run near us.

Continue up Gardiner then left on Chandler and collect at the base. 3 more intervals up Chandler with the final at about 90% effort.

Mosey back down Ridge Top paying homage to Toga then settle at the bottom of Waveny for 3 more intervals. Final interval at max effort, whatever was left.

Take the most direct route back to the VSF via fraternity row and the baseball field. Circle up for numbers, names, and YHC took us out with the maintenance crew offering respect.

Classic late June morning with 98% humidity and foggy. Apologies to the 4 milers as my instructions to the rallying point were not as clear as necessary. Thanks to Garbage Plate who performed his scout duties today and collected the lost goslings.

Highlights of the morning included the individual at the bottom at Gardiner who must have known intervals were on the docket as he joined us in walking up and down Gardiner while we stormed the path.

The second set of intervals saw Garbage Plate make it all the way to the end and Hitchhiker find his second, third, fourth, and fifth gears to motor all the way to the top. Kudos to those guys for pushing it hard on a not so easy day.

The final set of intervals commenced with what can best described as “Bodo’s Rallying Cry”. Make sure you ask him to reproduce that experience next time you see him.

Glad to hear that Hitchhiker’s family survived the storm yesterday evening. Hopefully your car can be salvaged.

There was a Saab sighting by many this AM. Perhaps he got lost on the way to the commons or just decided to do his own intervals elsewhere.

Great job today fellas.
