Location: Wreck Center – Oak Park
Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted an early spring but its gonna be super cold and snowy for run club – that doesn’t mean we aren’t gonna work our legs off! So be like Phil and don’t be scared of your shadow and come out to Run Club at the Wreck Center!
6 PAX came out in the frosty gloom for Run Club.
Warm up: Side Straddle Hop, Leg circles, Merkins.
PAX lined up by run-pace and paired fastest and slowest. Fast runners began 5K run going north and slower pace runners started 5K run going west. Pax met their team mates at halfway point and turned around and ran back to start so that each pair would complete a 5 K together.
Squats back at start until all PAX returned.
QIC got lost on way back and got an EC .5 miles while remaining PAX did extra squats.
Team lunged 100 yards.
QIC gave thoughts on change and reminder to appreciate the good in our lives. Even the stars are changing: https://www.space.com/dimming-star-betelgeuse-red-giant-could-explode-supernova.html
I feel like I’m on auto-pilot on these dark cold days. Its hard to get up and at em. Thanks for keeping me going this winter. Its a reminder of the power of habits, make em while your strong and when you are weak they can keep you moving in the right direction.
