3 For 800’s and Conversation

    • When: 09/20/18
    • QIC: Canseco
    • The PAX: Penny Pincher, Burgundy

67 Degrees and the slightest hint of fall weather.  Penny Pincher, Burgundy, and YHC warmed up with a mile at a brisk pace.  After the warm up we never stopped.

The Thang:

800’s (2 laps) @ 6:20-6:45 then…..recover with 800’s (2 laps) @ 8:00-8:30.  And so on and  so forth until we totaled a little over 6 miles all together.  I believe we did 5 sequences of this nonsense.  The sprinklers were on so we were naturally cooled off throughout the workout.

Word:

This workout hurt….at least for me.  Penny Pincher was sharing some of his thoughts and the things on his heart while running 6:30 paces ?.  Maybe I need to drink and eat what he is having!?  Burgundy held a strong pace and set the tone for this workout.  Great push brother.  I think I spoke less than anyone.  Clearly I like to blank out when I run…you know….turn the mind off.  Yes,  this was part of our discussion  as well.  Are you a thinking runner or a blanking runner?

Anyway let’s get back on track.  As much as this workout hurt I felt strong at the end but would not have pushed myself without the company around me.  Just a simple reminder that gathering together in the gloom is good for the soul and most of the time we all take/give something from time together.  Penny Pincher I appreciate your openess, geniuness, and sincerity.  Your heart is in the right place brother and you spoke to me in a way that changed my day.

Burgundy,  Im learning your the King of listening.  You can always tell a great listener by the questions they ask.  I appreciate how your always engaging conversation and getting interaction started.

Thanks men for sharing your time with me.  As always I get more out leading than I put in.

Penny Pincher and I prayed.

Thanks for the opportunity F3RockHill.
