It's been a long few weeks of coaching, offering up skull beads as prizes for great workouts, but we're finally seeing the results of all the hard work.
Today I offered up skulls for hitting a certain split time within each race: 600m into the 800m, 1200m into the 1600m and 2400m into the 3200m. I was trying to get them in "uncharted waters" by running faster than normal in the middle parts of the race.
The results: They broke my 4x800m school record of 8:33, running 8:24 (2:08, 2:07, 2:08, 2:01), our miler PR'd in the 1600 (4:45), our 800m guy PR'd (2:00.9), and our 2-miler PR'd (10:19 - giving my friend John Tomac's record a little scare halfway through the race).
Bunnell HS is still undefeated. An excellent afternoon.
