Today is the day Christopher Newport University’s track athletes got a chance to finally showcase their growth over the course of the year. We finally got a true measure of how hard we have worked all summer. All the heavy lifting and workouts have brought us here on the track to test our strong legs, and even stronger minds.
Mondays are already exhausting as is, so I really couldn’t tell you why track athletes choose to purposely exhaust themselves in a physical aspect, so with that being said, yeah, we are kind of crazy. We went full throttle on our first day of practice with an intense but, “fun” workout. It was hard, I won’t lie, but we all came together as a group and pushed each other so that we were all getting the same benefits.
Once the actual test was over each and every one of us talked about how different it is running on an indoor track and how our legs felt like noodles after the workout. But in the end, I think we can all agree that we are on track for an amazing season!
