Running track was painful. We trained and raced hard. We rarely had any easy days. Easy runs were always a spring finish. Repetitions for speed work turned into "repervals" We also had a lot of fun. Swimming in the pool after track meets, jackalope hunting, ice berging on the lake. Lot of things that would get coaches fired and kids kicked out of school now days but no one got hurt and no harm was done. We didn't break any rules to the best of my knowledge. Ha!
