What could be more Alaskan than getting to watch the progress of someone butchering a moose on the side of the road while doing double pole intervals?
When we arrived at Ballaine Lake at 8 this morning, there were flashing lights from a cop car up the hill on Farmer’s Loop. Routine traffic stop? Flares to mark a broken down car? Nope, just a dead moose on the side of the road after an unfortunate vehicular collision.
Fortunately for the athletes, the downhill turn of the recovery loop from both our specific strength repeats and DP intervals passed right by that point so they got to watch as knives, power saws and the works were produced from a trio of pick-up trucks to divvy up the ungulate into guts and good-eating. By the time I rolled past at the end of practice, there was nothing but a pile of giant organs left to be cleaned up.
Unfortunately for you, I didn’t bring my camera today, so instead I will share some pictures from yesterday’s speed and agility session (which, by the by, is far more photogenic).
