Conditions: man was it a cold 30 degrees, but at least it was dry
It’s time for the Burninator again, our monthly progression test at The Creek. There were no FNG’s but this was Pinwheel’s first experience. Run the first half-mile loop targeting an 11 min pace. The next half-mile targeting 10:30. Each lap will have a 30 sec lower pace target for as many laps as you can fit into the 45 minutes. And away we go.
YHC handled it well until the 8:30 lap. Then the cold air caught up with me. But the rest of the pax didn’t let me slow them down.
Doc Oc of course ran his typical sub-7 pace. There were a few 7:30’s run. A couple of others stayed back with YHC and just kept moving.
Namerama: Doctor Octopus, Snowden, All 9s, Pinwheel, Olaf, Goober, Weewoo, Urkel

Devo: How are you doing in life? As men, we often get caught slacking off in certain areas of our life. For YHC, it was with his job. My job can be quite mundane sometimes and I get caught up in phoning it in. It’s something that I really have had to be aware of and stay on top of. Am I being productive in everything that I do? Am I making God proud of the job that i perform in the job he has blessed me with?
What is it for you? Is there an area where you area phoning it in? Job? Kids? Marriage? Take some time today and evaluate your life to see if there are any areas that you aren’t giving it your best. God expects our best from us.
Our newest pax, Pinwheel has been coming out for 3 weeks now. His first few runs, he was able to complete the 3.8 mile “big loop” through Goose Creek in the 45 minutes. This morning he was able to complete 4.5 miles. Great progress in such a short time.
YHC continues to be motivated by the guys of the Creek to get faster and run increase distance. I will be back next month.
