The BackBlast:

Perfect mid 50 degree temps to start the day.

The Pre-Blast informed those willing to attend that today would be a workout focused on speedwork.  In fact, today was going to be a Lactate Threshold run.  Lactate Lactate Lactate

Apparently the word Lactate can even attract the occasional runner to the slack channel as we were gifted a visit by Condenser and his fondness of the word Lactate.

Okay….enough about Lactate

At 0515 the PAX started off together for a 1 mile warm up run from the parking lot to the fountain…..those attempting the LT run stopped at the fountain and prepared their watches for the endeavor.  Those not participating were encouraged to push their pace while running the figure 8 loop.  All agreed to meet back at the parking lot somewhere between 0605-0610 for COT.

4 attempted the LT challenge and I believe all 4 watches failed to capture a threshold.  This is certainly a run I’d like to complete again at one of the local high school tracks in the very near future during daylight.

Distances ranged from 4.75 to somewhere around 9.
