Under Pressure

Workout Date:



Hamburglar (CoQIC), Quaker (YHC)


Quaker, Hamburglar

The Thang:

AO: Hulkamania

Conditions: 59 degrees, calm, flashes of lighting over the ocean

5:14 – One Minute Warning

5:15 – AC/DC turned on, legs engaged, off we ran.


2 PAX ran from the Hulk to the beach. Along the way we revisited our experiences during GrowRuck22. The pace was a bit laid back because YHC is still not 100%. Although Hamburglar is full throttle at all times, he graciously kept his wheels in second gear to keep this guy company. We talked about life, liberty, & the pursuit of happiness.

When we reached the beach, YHC put to use one of the key lessons learned on GrowRuck22 namely ‘when you gotta go, you gotta go’. YHC found a bush near the entrance of the boardwalk leading over the dunes & after a few moments YHC was ready for the return trip.

The key take-away from today’s run was that “Pressure makes Diamonds” and on the flip side “Pressure bursts Pipes”. The question each one of us needs to ask ourselves is, “Are you in the diamond business or are you constantly fixing pipes?”

6:00 – Time Called

The Numbers: 5 miles; 8:41 pace

Aye Quaker
