Thursday Track Report: Zeagle Lite
- Written by Bwana Bwana

It was a thoroughly pleasant day with clouds and sun, mild temperatures, and a break in the humidity, as John Domico, Tom Cali, Bob Cornwall, Judd Michael, Mike Weyandt, Torrie Raisch, Bob Shafer, Mike Zimmerman, Kevin Becker, Josh Litofsky, Rich Harter, David Lloyd, and Marty Mazur headed for the IM Fields. Mike Martin showed up in civies. He is in the middle of treatments for sciatica. It involves laying in a microwave oven for increasingly longer periods of time. He’s hopeful he’ll be back soon, but for now he gets free popcorn with every treatment!
Zimmerman (Zeagle) got the the field early and was doing a low recovery mixed rep length workout. Each rep was a long straight (270 m), short rest (60 m), long “U” (600 m). Rest between reps was 6 just 60. Kind of insane. And he did 5 of them. The key was consistent straights, and not backing off too much on the “U”s either. Bwana made up a “Lite” version. Same reps, but a short “U” rest between (so about 390 m between reps). Hopefully the longer rests allowed for quicker rep times. Do 3 to get a check in the box, or do 4 or more for a gold star.
Bwana will not be at the track next week. Heading to Kentucky for a niece's wedding, and some bourbon tasting while he’s out there. Have a great last workout of meteorological summer!
