I have a confession to make
I can't trackstand (yet!)
What sort of a track sprinter (and track sprint coach!) can't track stand? Me! But, we're working on it. I'm not the only one with this big gap in my skill set. We're practicing a lot on Sundays at our DISC sessions while the enduros do their warmdown and last night I managed to roll to a stop and hold a track stand for about 10 seconds. Progress! Next week we'll be going up onto the boards to do them. Still wearing shoes rather than clipped in, but it's progress and in a few weeks the whole squad will be bunny hopping up and down the track! Or at least some will and the rest of us will be standing still watching.
This afternoon I'm off to get my left shoulder scanned with an ultrasound, I damaged it about two months ago, rest hasn't helped, physio made it worse, so it's time to find out what's actually wrong with it. Wish me luck! It's at the point now where I can't rotate my shoulder back far enough to do a squat and I'm not enjoying front squats as a substitute, even if I'm reaping the novice gains from a new exercise, I know I'm bleeding raw strength by missing my core exercise in the gym. C'est la Vie!
