#Scramble Mile

A challenge is a hard thing to pass up.  So when Gaston tapped me last week for a Q and then tee’d up the #Ramble 5K plan for Friday it seemed like the perfect chance to knock out the #MyMile Strava challenge and see if anyone could post a new PR.  Of course, it doesn’t hurt to pick that mile carefully.

Conditions: 68-ish and Famously humid

TheThang:

From Trenholm Plaza, head up Forest Drive to Clemson.  The mile challenge of the day was the downhill distance from Forest to Trenholm on Clemson (which is just under a mile so make sure to drag the distance a bit).  At the corner of Clemson and Trenholm, the route turned left to Erskine and another left headed back toward Clemson again.  But, to keep things a little more interesting, we headed up Furman all the way to Winthrop before hooking left to tie back into Clemson.  From there it was simply a matter of cresting the hill again and turning right down Forest for the home stretch back to Trenholm Plaza.  A twofer… a 5K in distance (or a bit more) with a speed mile thrown into the middle.  Don’t forget to name your Strava activity with #MyMile to get entered to win some new shoes.

Announcements:

As stated above, the #Ramble5K is Friday and so #Scramble, by edict of Gaston, will be closed down to encourage the faithful to post at Shandon Pres this Friday the 16th.  Spread the word.

F3Dads will follow on Friday at 7:30, DHS so make it a doubledown with your 2.0s
