We revisited an old friend today. Russell has been a part of the RRL since the beginning and stirs several emotions when you see it on the board.
1. Cool! Field Trip
Russell is a short, steep hill that we run 8 times for time. The all time record was set by Will Kelley at 11:05. Several of us have gone under the impressive benchmark of 12 minutes but the majority of the pack comes in between 12:30 and 13:30. I came in at 12:37 today but missed the turnaround point on the first lap by about 20-30 feet. We turn around at a patch of concrete that looks like a little cannon, or a gun...or you can imagine what others think it may look like. Either way, some road work had been done on a similar patch of concrete which made me think that was our gun. Nope...so maybe I was 12:50 today.
It was really hot today. Even at 6 am it was over 73 degrees.
It is super simple as most really good workouts are. Simply run up the hill 8 times.
Compare to the last time we did this here
