Sprintalicious

So my jazzercizerific motivator made the trip over the hill to work on sprints with me today.

I can proudly say that after doing these little sprint workouts religiously and vigorously for the past two months, that I have been.....
....doing them wrong the whole time.

oy.

Leg speed is not my forte. Its not. Ask anyone who has seen me run. Like a gawdamn grizzly bear. All ass and lumbering thighs. Effective, but not pretty. Outright ugly even. And, here's the problem...too short.
Back to the drawing board for me.

So today I didn't put it in the last possible grinder push push gear and used leg speed instead. Silly bike just flip flopped under me all lost and confused. My feet kept moving round and round and were begging me to give them some torque so they could stop spinning all wonky like. Those last 8 seconds were sheer clutzball-out-of-breath hell. I can't wait to freak everyone out with my screwball sprint at some upcoming race.

This silly bike racing sure is funstuff.

does this mean you're no longer going to be a member of MA (mashers anonymous)? we'll miss you.

feels so wrong but over time it is feeling a little less wrong

but why didn't he tell you sooner that you were doing them wrong?

Embrace your inner masher - don't let someone else tell you otherwise. Heck*, it has worked for Jan... wait, bad example.

He didn't know. All this time and we had never done sprints together until now.

I wonder if he'll still have me even though I am a card carrying m.a. member?

I think I need to ride my single speed this weekend to make up for all this spinning twinkletoe nonsense.

Grizzly bears are fast. You can't out run a bear you know. So that means when the Bean sprints we all play dead.
