Thelma Backblast – 5/17

  • When: 05/17/2018
  • Q: Whistle
  • Pax: Autobahn (Lauren-FNG), Batman, ChiaPet, Drive By, Groupie, Guinevere, No Name Sapphire, Popeye, Rooney Skinner, Savvy, Stringbean, Touche, Wheels, Whistle (Q), Willie

14 FiAs – including 1 FNG (Welcome, Autobahn!) – joined me this morning for an off-track #thelma adventure.  The Twitterverse and Facebook chatter leading up to our 5:15 launch had me a little worried, but we made it out and back in one piece, with no one lost (Yay, Touche!) and no wine consumed (Sorry, Wheels!).  The big debate of the morning had nothing to do with #yannylaurel and everything to do with lingerie.  Or, underwear.  Vanilla, Vanilla.

Here’s what you missed:

Warm up – Run from AG to shopping center at Colony/Sharon (~0.85mi).  Bicycle crunch in the roundabout to regroup and stretch while Whistle explains crazy map.

Choose your adventure for 20 minutes of intervals:

  • Run Red or Green at 70% effort  (~600m each)
  • Run Yellow or Purple at 85% effort (~400m each)
  • Run Blue as cooldown OR as #hotlap AYG-style (~200m)

Cool down – Run back to AG for stretching and COT.

Thanks to all who showed up this morning and for playing along with my antics!  Sorry about the crazy yoga traffic and that one weird guy in a hurry.  According to Strava, folks logged between 3.5 and 4.5 miles.  Nice work!



P.S. For G and anyone else who loves Simon… My game was red-blue-green-blue-purple-blue-yellow-blue-red-blue-green-blue-blue.  What was yours?
