PAX: Deepdish, Goob, ShamWow,Lambeau,
Quick review of the 5 core principles
At 5:15 the Pax headed off in different directions. Lambeau and ShamWow headed out of the parking lot to the bridge. Goob, DeepDish, and Crabcakes headed for the 6.25 mile loop just north of the parking lot for a progressive run. The run consisted of 3 2 mile increments at progressively faster paces. The first segment was scheduled to be between 8:25-8:35 but like we often do, we started out too fast and covered the first 2 miles at an average pace of 8:12. The next segment was 2 miles between an 8:02-8:12 pace, the PAX completed this segment at an average pace of 8:04. The conversations about dry air, large Volume stock trades late on a Friday afternoon, and fantasy football were distant memories as the PAX started the 3rd increment with a pace goal of between 7:42-7:52 per mile. Goob and Crabcakes completed these 2 miles at an average of 7:45. DeepDish complaining of cramping decided to try and out run the cramping and finished this segment well in front of us.
Total distances for the PAX ranged from just shy of 3 miles to 6.25.
