intervals at sunrise

today was the beginning of the snowbal effect. good things snowball, but so do bad things (so says truthfully from my father)
we did our first true-true interval workout today on the turf fields. the 400's were smooth and rhythmic and the 4-min threshold was euphoric. as always, i started off slow but then quickly got into my groove on cloud 9.

these are the days that i love: teammates there to push you, coach there to encourage you, and trainers there to tend to you.

sun, blisters, sweat, blood, grass, dew, ice baths, foam-rolling, heat packs: those are a few of my favorite things.

unstoppable on the course, bulldogs are back in black.

we packed up nicely again today, but still stringing out slightly. coach has all our best interests at heart and he is doing everything in his power to keep us all healthy, with jimmy and amy's help of course. ;)

the flu is going around, take your zinc and vitamin c
