Feathers fall flat

pantene5mi. Last night’s Rogue Run was terrific fun. Plenty of runners, a great showing at the Twisted Trunk afterward, and good photos of the group.

Today the wake up with 3 beers for dinner was a challenge. I usually do some body weight exercises to open my lungs and wake up before driving to the track. Those were tough. Pushup burpees = beer burpees on mornings like this.

We did a familiar workout today, I was the group lead runner, although I’d prefer following someone instead of wondering where the others are behind me. The differing distances made that a good lesson today because different people like to ramp up for certain distances. Chris Taylor likes the 200s. Bryan is good at the longer 800s and 1ks.

1-mile cool down jog.

The quickie hair and body wash I do in the summer warm months is a welcome refreshment. When we were waiting for the start of the last 1000m run, Jen Q and I spoke about how dead calm it was. I said it was so still today, that if you dropped a feather, it would just fall straight to the ground! True.
