Tonight I was tasked with running ten 30 second hill sprints.
Well, I don't know about you, but I have a hard time keeping track of my counts when working out. So what to do? I put 10 multi grain Cheerio's in my Spibelt and went off to the Andressen x 63rd St hill. There, I ran up the hill for 30 seconds, and then placed a Cheerio down when I stopped.
Rinse - lather - repeat for ten sprints.
Of course my Cheerio's were all over the place. There must have been a full 4 yard difference between the two Cheerio's furthest from each other. I guess consistency is still a problem. The good news is that the shortest Cheerio was placed on my 3rd run. Not my 10th. I made myself pass that little ring on the sidewalk every time after.
Bonus of using Cheerios verses small rocks - no one will stub their toes on Cheerios and birds can eat them.
The REALLY good news? There was NO RAIN!! It was DRY!! Dare I hope for the same at track night tomorrow?
