The Hill – The Hill

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City The Hill (Science Hill)

7 PAX showed up with 18F  and cloudy weather.  A brisk morning.  QIC – Honeysuckle.

Warm-up/stretch OYO

After a Ponzi lap and some quick feet on the field to stretch out, the PAX headed off-campus for some hill work.  We need to name the beast of a hill in the top parking lot.  Balk introduced us to some torture there late last year.  After several trips up “The Hill”, we headed around John Exum taking advantage of all hills until we made it back to the track.  4 laps of 200 m runs with 200 m recovery, no rest in between, just rinse and repeat.  PAX choice, the PAC chose the field over the stairs.  One suicide using every 10 yard line took us to 6:15.  Final count, 4.21 miles.

With the frigid cold, Honeysuckle didn’t prepare any post-Thang comments.  I will provide a tip for the PAX.  I’ve only known Donatello for a year, since I started attending F3.  Seems that he’s known as a man of few words.  If you happen to find yourself on a grueling workout with him and want to focus on your form or you’re smoked and just don’t want to talk, ask Donatello about Jiu Jitsu……
