Russell x 8

 This is a house on Russell Street.  You get an idea of the steepness of the hill from this picture.

Russell x 8 is one of our favorites and one of the simplest workouts anyone could do.

Simply run to the top and back down 8 times for time. 

Will Kelley once set a gym record by doing this in 11:05.  No one has ever done it faster.  I invite anyone to give it a try.  Just start at the Stop sign on Barton, run to the top where the pavement was once cut and repaired.  It looks like a cannon to me, or a little gun.  Anyway, that is the turnaround point.

Today, Mike Drew finished in 11:22 which is blazing fast and Rusty Gray was 12:25.  I came in at 13:05.

Anything under 13 is outstanding, under 12 is beast status and if you can get it under 11, I will give you the World Championship Belt to wear around the office for a week.

Christmas workout tomorrow.  Looking forward to it!
