Don’t Fartsack the Fartlek

Join HYC for a sophomore Q run club at Dark Tower where we will work on SPEED. We’ll keep it (mostly) on the pavement. SYITG.
If anyone is on the fence to try out a BDRC, please go with those bad lads and push yourself.


High Knees down to the turnaround, Buttkickers back, mosey back to the circle.

The Thang

Starting at the parking lot, we did a big loop around the River Walk.

50% effort to start for .2 miles

75% effort for 0.1 miles

95% effort for .05 miles

50% effort to start for .2 miles

75% effort for 0.1 miles

95% effort for .05 miles

Repeat until 5:55

Met at the bottom of the sled hill.  Split into two groups for wolf and rabbit.  6 PAX took 10 steps up the hill, the other 5 PAX tried to catch them on my GO.  Back to the bottom and switched roles.  Back to the bottom and all lined up to see who was the fastest of all.

Recover, recover.

Circle of Trust

For God did NOT give me a spirit of fear, but of POWER and LOVE and a SOUND MIND. 2 Timothy 1:7
I had struggled with anxiety and OCD for years. I didn’t want to go see a counselor, I refused to call them a psychologist because it freaked me out, and definitely didn’t want to take any medication. I finally checked my ego and went to see somebody in 2011 and started the journey to better mental health. That counselor was good and helped me, but it wasn’t until I moved out here and saw a different psychologist that immediately helped me.
Most of us have a ton going on our lives. Kids, marriages, separations, jobs, etc. and it leads to a lot of stress and anxiety. If you’re on the fence and think counseling might help, please go. I’d rather have a bruised ego and be the happiest and healthiest I’ve been in my life, than continue on the road of stress and anxiety.
Again, For God did NOT give me a spirit of fear, but of POWER and LOVE and a SOUND MIND. Aye?
