Samsaras

This is the new and improved jumping drill formerly known as substitutes, because they substituted in winter for suicides. Which are also known as wind sprints, you know, run a quarter track, turn around, run back, run a half track, turn around, run back, etc. I worry that they still call them suicides, like, in high schools. But in fact I still call them suicides, because they're supposed to make you feel like dying and because I do it to myself. But in winter I couldn't do sprints in the schoolyard, I switched to doing jumps in the kitchen and they're just as bad; they're both about short, high intensity bursts to build anaerobic capacity, which is what derby calls for.

Oh and, I decided to call these samsaras, because suffering is always done in the name of desire.
