Who does the two-fers, Part II? We have less to go on because the Thursday Track attendance was pretty light. Only Tom Cali, John Domico, Judd Michael, Lance Bland, Andy Maguire, Michael Goldfine, Mike Casper, Rob Shaver, Esther Prins, Mark Fedkin, Miles Smith, Jim Laudermilch, Rich Harter, Rob Peterson, and Marty Mazur came out. And among them, only Cali, Harter, and Mazur headed to the hills by eventide. And Cali was suffering from some kind of Low T ailment, huffin' and a wheezin'.
Bwana realizes that we do a lot of "maintain and sustain" workouts, where we keep some kind of barely sub 5K race pace over a bunch of long reps. How about a little kickin' out the jams, especially for the "fast-twitch challenged", like Rob Peterson? So 8X200 it was. That's a little light on the 200s (Bwana usually asks for at least 12), but Bwana at least thought that more Trackers would double up in the evening. Peterson acquited himself well. He'll have a hard time keeping the title of Sandbagger of the DCR with that kind of effort.
OK, so why were there so few people at the track today. School is in, both Penn State and the little kiddies. Nobody should be on vacation anymore! It's mOUnTaiNBACK training season! Nobody should be slacking! Unless you're among the many mOUnTaiNBACK injured. But even Judd Michael, hobbled mOUnTaiNBACK DCR ex-captain, made it to the track to work that bad hammie! If you're serious, get to work!
