COACHES CORNER – Thursday Highlights
Morgan- I loved seeing Ginger pushing her limits by doing 25 push ups blindfolded on the incline log.
Also, Tela gave me a great quote today: "I just did the verticals playpen blindfolded, I'm ready for anything"
Lucy- Shamus cracked me up today when he asked "wanna know how well I love slalom??”
It was awesome watching Noi taking 16 secs off his time in the indoor obstacle today.
I loved it when Reilly told me "I plan on winning this whole thing this year” after his second training run at the sandpit slalom.
Jess- Hearing Shamus exclaim, "I love this part!!!!" in regards to the leg routine we did today. He also happened to be wearing his dad’s 1997 Eliteam shirt today, which was rad.
Merrick on the SL after he was struggling; "I'm going to focus on something I saw in the red notebook: Remember what you did to finish”
Doug- It was awesome watching Reilly "wrecking ball" into his buddy Paul on the Burma Bridge on the ropes course.
As Louie was hanging 40 feet over the river on the Burma bridge, he said, "this is so chill"
Julia- Watching Will slip up a little on the Berg, pick himself back up and still CRUSH it and PR with a time of 13.03 was a highlight for me today.
Livy- Shamus pushing his limits and setting a personal best in the agility course was so fun to see.
Zack- My highlight from today was Reilly's quote on the launch pad. "I'm going to launch full force off this” as he then proceeded to grab the bag on his first try!
What did you think of Sandpits today? What is the key to having a good run?
