Short distance, high intensity intervals! 

Let's meet in the '62 Room to warm up and then we will head up to the basketball courts (4th floor).

12 rounds for time:
20 double-unders (1:2 sub to maintain high intensity = 40 single unders/jumping jacks)
100 meter sprint touch & go (run 50m, touch, and return to start - half length of B-Ball courts - longwise)
Rest 1 minute

Post time to comments.

Hey - I'm not sure how long the basketball courts are in Arvin (maybe that fancy new gym has some b-i-g courts), but I'm pretty sure it's only 50 feet to the half-court line.

Is half-court and back the standard, regardless of the space and time defying physics that may make Arvin b-ball courts larger?

@jswobe, the gyms have 3 courts side by side with some space in between, so running halfway across the courts is about 50m.

jswobe - in the 4th floor there are 3 baseball courts side by side, so the idea is to run across 1.5 basketball courts (not up/down 1/2 of one). I would go more off of the distance (estimate 100 meters). This morning the b-ball courts were full, so we improvised and went 'approximately' 50 meters down and back, although it will probably more like 60 - 70 meters each way. Each round typically took about 30 seconds to complete.

Tex - where have you been man? We've missed you!

As for the morning crew - awesome work this morning, why to push yourselves!

17:04 overall
(split times, min = 28.94 secs, max = 30.95 secs) - I'm very happy that I was able to maintain high intensity throughout!

Absolute smoker w/ humidity and heat (and bear-crawling obstacles) for added fun!

I don't know my time since I forgot my watch, but I know I cut myself short of the full 12 mins of rest. I finished right next to MAJ G.
Good push by all.

Double unders.... some day....

Ah ha! Not court, but courts! That makes more sense...

I know, I know, I've been having this thing with THS when the 0500 alarm goes off. I'm going to come in on Monday...

Walked off 50m in the 4th floor basketball court and ran that down and back. 17:55

17:14, but with the single unders cop out.

Redeemed myself this afternoon with a "sea to summit run" from the railroad tracks to the top of the ski slope via Washington gate at 33:54.
