Sprintervals

2 Apr

= Vomit. I’d never heard of a sprinterval let alone done one until today. They are just what they sound like. Do a few 20 second sprints followed immediately by a 5 min interval. Repeat the whole process a few times but not before taking a break to sit in the gutter on the side of the road with your head between your knees trying as hard as you can to not vomit.

I think most people would just vomit and get it over with. I know people that can vomit on the fly without even missing a pedal stroke (dug). Not me. To yield to the vomit is to unleash a beast that knows no propriety.

I convulse, I wretch and gag and flail about. I can’t think of a single worse thing for my body to do than vomit. Just ask Tasha. When I vomit she has to put the kids in the car and get as far away from the house as possible. I’m very noisy and very messy. I couldn’t imagine what a passerby would think if I let the beast out on the side of the road.

I can control it it just takes a little time. After about 10 minutes I was able to get back on my bike.

I doubt I’ll be doing any sprintervals anytime soon, I can’t believe I did more than one, but I would like to recommend everyone go out and do some tomorrow.
