Are neon orange palm trees indigenous to Manhattan?
Don't know what's stranger: a neon orange palm tree or a palm tree in the middle of the city.
Had a Group Training Session (GTS) in Central Park tonight. We started at Columbus Circle and ran uptown for 20 minutes with a minute of squats every four minutes. Coach Scott equated running after squats to that scene in Forrest Gump when he starts running with the braces on his legs and then 30 seconds into his sprint, the braces go flying off and he's running normally. And that's exactly what it feels like to run after a full minute of really deep squats. The legs burn in non-existent places for about 30 seconds and then, all of a sudden, they're ready to go again. For 3.5 minutes. Until it's time for the next set of squats. We probably ran about 4 miles total, maybe a little less. I'm fairly certain I'll be super sore tomorrow morning, but a good, "I've accomplished a lot" kind of sore.
Off to bed now, catch y'all on the flip side!
