The hills were alive. Rolling in from Tega Cay I was like “How hard can a stroll through Palisades be?” Turns out hard! A couple of notes from YHC before leading a running workout.
- Try to post a few times when you are not the Q. It helps with getting a lay of the land. And getting to know the regulars.
- Review some of the recent routes so as not to be repetitive and reflect an air of not caring or just “winging it”
- When laying out the route on mapmyrun, take a peek at the elevation changes and adjust as necessary (or not)
- Know where your going (this is key)
Item 2 above gave the necessary ground for some light twitter cyber-bullying of YHC (deserved). Item 3 resulted in some grumbles, mostly from YHC. And item 4 resulted in some wayward Pax (again myself included). Tclaps to Hauschka for getting me back on track.
So the 13 of us rolled out and took on Palisades. The route is posted somewhere in the Twitter-verse and should stay there. We had a good time, got the heart rate up, got lost (some of us at least), found about 4-5 different ways to get back to Palisades Park Elementary. All told the distances ranged from 4.5 – 5.5 miles. A special thank you to Jedi and Witch Hunt for the conversation rolling back into the school. If you’ve ever wondered the many uses of a credit card and/or penny, just hit Jedi up. He brings new light to the term “penny pincher”.
COT and BOM on me.
Haushcka, thanks for the opportunity as always.
