Someone mysteriously signed YHC up to Q The Rabbit what Zika calls “Churham’s Premier Running AO.”  As some know, YHC is properly categorized as a “non-runner.”  Leading up, the skepticism was high (the highest in YHC’s own brain), especially given YHC’s nonconforming running-heavy boot camp at The Big House last week.  Yesterday, YHC reassured the PAX that The Rabbit would be a pure running workout.

15 PAX circled up.

10 LBACs IC

10 reverse LBACs IC

The Thang

YHC explained the routine.  Goal was to work on lactate threshold and recovery.  Was promised by brother-in-law that this routine could provoke merlot spillage.  During the second-to-last tempo run, YHC thought he saw a PAX bent over by Iron Lung, but it turned out he was just getting some coaching.

Zika announced the Run for Malawi 2021 Edition and the corresponding F—OFF.  Details here.  Name-a-rama.  YHC took us out.

 

Moleskin

YHC noted that running is that rare sport when you can be on the same “playing surface” as someone who is dramatically better than you.  By contrast, YHC will likely never step on the same basketball court as Lebron James.  This fact can be both intimidating and inspiring.  YHC chooses to draw inspiration from the much faster Rabbits.  Perhaps enough to eventually change his category from “non-runner” to “wannabe runner.”
