IN THE TIME OF CARONAVIRUS
I mentioned using ZOOM, yesterday, which I’m willing to set-up and won’t cost you anything. ZOOM is an internet meeting app where we could talk to each other and see each other, in real-time, through our electronic devices. It’s NOT a spying device. You can shut off when you’re done and the basic plan limits you to 40 minutes at a time anyway. Two people said they were interested. I have not heard from anybody else. I figured it would be a good way to stay motivated and have accountability. If not enough people are interested then we won’t do it. Simple. Let me know.
We’ll be looking for and taking suggestions on outdoor locations where we can train that are relatively easy for CF Suffolk athletes to get to and where we won’t be breaking county laws or ordinances and won’t be a nuisance to others.
Back in 2008 or 2009 a few of us were asked to leave the Happauge High School track, on a Saturday afternoon at 4 pm, when there was not a single person using the track. We had used the track many times before this incident, but haven’t used it since. The school security officer “threw us out” because we were carrying a squat rack and barbell to the training area of the track. Again, we had done this many times before.
Why Happauge High school?
For the same reason I would try going back now: There is a hill on one side of the track. It’s a great place to do running based workouts with kettlebells or bodyweight and get in some short hill sprints. Hill sprinting is awesome!
Lisa and I spent a few hours in the gym today. It wasn’t the same without you. We made the best of it, but it definitely wasn’t the same. I still did all bodyweight workouts. I did a few kettlebell windmills during my warm-up but everything else was bodyweight only. I miss you all.
