Timed Mile and a Shart

15 strong decided to get faster this morning and most of them were faster than me…


Lap warm up (most were already warm)

Timed Mile (lots of fun) followed by lap cool down

Four 400 repeats with 200 recovered

Timed Mile (not as much fun) cool down

Thank you all for the opportunity to lead from behind. SIBling is a sneaky tough workout especially when you do 2 Timed Miles.

The idea was to run the first timed mile at race pace. The goal was then to maintain the 400s at the same pace and finished with the Second Timed mile to maintain consistent pace. Not easy and the Q failed on the second time mile because of the title of the post.

YHC was two days out from the flu today and would have preferred to fartsack. During the second timed mile, I was trying to make sure I was not fooled by a fart as I recovered from the flu over the week.  am not sure if I was successful.

Some were faster than others, but everyone gave their best. I loved how everyone roots on the others to do their best at all F3 AOs but especially SIBling rivalry.

    No, no, that’s the information we want, helpful information. Obvious, but helpful.

    You can’t trust a flu fart and run a timed mile simultaneously — hell, Cannoli, everybody knows that.

    Or so I thought…

    “I was trying to make sure I was not fooled by a fart as I recovered from the flu over the week.  am not sure if I was successful.”

    Sounds like you gambled and lost, but it is not definitive.

    Step 1: Pull down your pants
    Step 2: Pull underpants down half way
    Step 3: Bend over and take a peek at seat area of underpants
    Step 4: Take note of the presence of any brown residue

    At this point you will have the information necessary to declare success or failure.

    BTW as this applies to you too Slice I encouraged Cannoli to participate in the upcoming Cannoli Run. You can even double down by also entering the That’s Italian! costume contest. No BS:

    That site is blocked by my employer, but I am intrigued. Will have to get the gold chain and Z Cavaricci’s out of storage…
