The first workout of the camping trip is always a big mental and physical accomplishment, BALLBUSTERS. The high humidity and temperature add to make this one of the toughest ballbuster workouts ever. The workout is intervals alternating between easy and hard 2 minute long runs. The course is on a 1000m wooded course with two large hills in on a grass trail. To earn the tittle of a "ballbuster" you must run over 12 "hard" 2 minute intervals. We had several boys and girls break the twelve barrier. After the workout everyone ran down to the lake and cooled off and completed their post workout routine.
After a dinner of spaghetti, buckets of water, and showers we had our nightly campfire talk and s'mores. Last nights subject was everyone sharing a time when a teammate had helped them through a diffucult run, workout, or race. We just finished when the rain drops started to fall. We had to spend the night in dining hall because Bemidji recieved 1.32 inches of rain and heavy rains.
Today the weather is in the mid 70's, and no more rain in the forcast. Everyone is in great spirits, after putting up their tents and moving into them! For today we have our Volleyball tournmen, our second run of the day, and more campfire talks.
