Smokeboots – 6/27/18

9 HIM posted for a surprisingly dry mosey through the shire. I had my doubts at 12:30am whether smokeboots would even happen.

PAX: Floppy Disk, Donuts, AFib, Big Stick, Edible Arrangements, Black Lung, Skid Mark, Frugal McDougal, Ludwig

75 degrees and muggy as we departed under cloudy skies. About a 7:45 opening mile before Floppy decided to kick it into gear. EA hung with Floppy for a long time, eventually referring to himself as the sacrificial lamb.

Post-run chatter was cut short due to thunder and lightning, and several PAX followed Frugal home to help him move a piano…..apparently he couldn’t enlist adequate help after Sir E yesterday.

1200s on the track

PAX: Floppy Disk, Jacques


Only two of us for the track workout SmokeBoots option. EPO came up with the workout and Jacques and I executed. The workout was 4×1200 w/2:00 jog between, then finish with 2×400 fast with 1:00 recovery between. It was a tough day. YHC struggled mightily, due to the conditions, and likely also in part to Funyuns smoker yesterday. Jacques pushed the pace the whole time. That guy is a machine. Big Stick was nowhere to be found.
