Beginning of track 2014

A new year of track has started! I was only able to attend the first day of training this week. It was a classic spring day – sunny, almost balmy at the beginning, then steady, cold rain the last half. I needed to be reminded of some of the basic early season drills (should have done my homework). We have at least four new prospects and most of our veterans have returned, so it looks to be a good year. January and February were tough for me, as I had a lingering cold, but I’ve tried to keep up on my core training.. I’ll have to pick up on my running. I’m looking forward to working with our new training device at home and working out on my new pit. I need to do some work on runway maintenance.
On more personal notes, Chuck will have to work up core strength before vaulting again. I’m always a little nervous at the beginning of the season with my arthritis and trouble spots. It always seems to work out.
Josh, who is on the team, and I are pretty competitive and and I keep threatening to apply a height handicap.
