YHC to find a few PAX in the parking lot eagerly awaiting the start of the run…..Defib apparently couldn’t wait so he ran 6 miles prior to 0515……he started at 0500.  True Story he runs that fast…

At 0514 YHC tried to review the plan for the day but the PAX was full of chatter this morning so YHC sent the Ruckers on their way and told the running PAX they would learn the plan for the day during the warmup mile.  At 0515 the PAX headed off for the 6.2 mile Northern loop.

The plan was to run a warmup mile together at a 9 minute pace and then progressively get faster each mile the rest of the way.  YHC encouraged PAX to push themselves and run by feel instead of having a set goal of dropping a certain number of Seconds each mile…..

Mile 1 went as planned…9 minute warm up….the PAX apparently weren’t interested in dropping seconds per mile they were more interested in dropping minutes as indicated by our 2nd mile at 8:15 pace.  YHC and Bing decided that we were doing to fall back and try to maintain this pace while the remaining 5 runners continued to push themselves faster each mile.

Bing and I fell back to 8:22 for the 3rd mile but then picked up our pace and were progressively faster each mile finishing our 6th mile at a 7:51 pace.

I know of at least 1 PR on the day….and many of the other PAX were well below 7 minute miles for their last mile(s).

Awesome job today Men.
