[ Focus: Today is about racing at 500 pace, as well as continuing to work your legs. ]
[ Focus: The ‘Empire’ set is there to help you recover from your race, as well as build you back up in to the next one.
[ Focus: The first relay is to start the racing and preparing. The time goals for the 500 are there for you to have a goal in mind while you’re racing each other. ]
[Focus: The last relay should be fun and competitive while also kicking really fast. ]
[**If you win a relay/race, on the ‘Empire Strikes Back’ Set, you do a 200 on the same interval instead of a 400**]
        
The Highest Compliment that you can pay me is to say that I work hard every day, that I never dog it. -Wayne Gretzky
