My Easter Fitness Sermon:
I almost feel guilty.
Hit the track for some sprints today because I didn't have time to find hills.
I get there and skinny-fat dude with huge love handles, flabby calves, and a FUPA and his wife with huge muffin top are suffering while enduring some kind of half-jog for a long distance. Both are obviously hating every second of it, and are already sweating and panting. The woman would stop and do a few stretches every lap, I'm sure to stretch out her back, which was probably hurting due to her skewed gait and various muscle weaknesses/imbalances.
Me: Walk to the 50yd sprint markers. Take off shirt to soak up vitamin D. Set timer on my phone at finish line.
Sprint 50yds, walk back to start, repeat for 12 minutes. Didn't count rounds. The last 5 were pretty much 100%. Pumped, feeling stronger than when I started, I stretch out and go. All done. Come home and eat bacon.
When I left the couple was still jogging/walking in obvious misery. At least they were outside and not indoors on a treadmill.
I wanted to go up and just shake both of them. They were torturing themselves and doing very little to help anything.
The guy probably had less lean mass than I have in my right leg, and the the way all that fat was stored on both of them was mostly all hormones and poor diet...they were just making it worse by the slow cardio too. There are a lot of people out there that need a little guidance. It doesn't have to be that way. I felt bad for them.
This track is practically on my way home from the gym. I was not even there for more than 20 minutes tops. I actually felt kind of bummed because it was so nice out and I'd just started to get things to the "feel good" stage of the training session, where growth hormone was starting to peak. Had to stop myself and stick to the plan for the day. A good thing too. The total-body pump I got from sprinting was just about right. I feel it deep in my midsection and shoulders hours later, which is typical of a good sprint session.
12 MINUTES: 50YD SPRINT, WALK BACK TO START, REPEAT.
