Out Of It

I have been training a little bit lately for the fall soccer season. College soccer reffing isn’t something I like to go into without a nice fitness base. And besides, our annual physical evaluation is Saturday morning. Among the referees present I had the most points at last year’s physical—which consists of tests to evaluate things like your endurance, speed, and agility—and I would like to repeat the feat this year.

So anyway, I was running intervals over at Zemann Elementary this morning. Three sets of four groups of 75 meters hard, 25 meters easy, 75 meters hard, 25 meters rest. I had finished 11 of my 12 sets, and I was getting a little loopy from the humidity and morning heat. I was walking in the shade during my 25 meters of rest, when suddenly a car horn sounded from a driveway just to my right. Honest to goodness I actually said out loud:

“Gentlemen, do I have at least one number right?”

Clearly it was about time to get out of the heat.

I roamed around Wilderness Park this morning for some jogging/walking and then hit one of the elliptical machines at the F st recreation center this afternoon. There should be no trouble sleeping tonight.
