Won’t be able to follow Fishwrap’s mic drop backblast

6 Ring Run regulars started off Tuesday strong.

The thang:

  • Mosey from the church to the speed bump at bottom of hill on Malvern, 10 merkins IC, and hard to the top of the hill
  • Recovery mosey for a few seconds and then 1 minute hard down Sharon, recovery for 30 seconds and another minute hard to Chilton
  • Partner up
  • Partner 1 runs up Sharon to MPCC tennis entrance, while Partner 2 does rotation of 10 merkins, 10 squats, 20 LBC’s; Then switch
  • Repeat up Chilton (add on 20 Russian Twists); Repeat opposite way up Sharon to Briarcliff
  • Jog back up Sharon to original speed bump on Malvern and plank. AYG to the top of Malvern, back down; AYG backwards to the top of Malvern, back down; AYG to the top of Malvern, back down
  • Mosey to the corner and AYG back to the AO.


I was in a Ring Run Q rut on Monday night, kept coming back to the same old plans – run down Roswell, merkins at each speed bump, some hills, blah blah blah.  On my drive in this morning, I thought I’d check out that section of Sharon so I did my warm up run on that road.  Still wasn’t sure what we’d do, but went with it.  Simple yet effective.  Each of those stretches (Sharon – MPCC; up Chilton; Sharon to Briarcliff) are sneaky little hills and longer than they seem like they should be.  And then tack on that Malvern hill for some more pain.  It earned a 9 on A&H’s creativity scale…not so sure about that, but I’m going to take that as a positive.  Total of around 4 miles.

Announcements:  Convergence plus American 4 Miler with Speed for Need on July 4.

Thanks to Paula for the thoughtful, well said (rehearsed?) take out.

Thanks to Tardy for the opportunity.  I always enjoy getting out there with this crew.

Foul Ball next week.
