Day 2 on the Track

We've had our second practice on the track and so far this is what we know for sure:
-the air conditioner in the building has not been running which means we are all sweating extraordinary amounts.
-the track is awesome to skate and is really fast.
-cab drivers are not afraid to drive on the wrong side of the road.
-moped drivers are 100% confident they won't be hit.

We haven't done any speed drills or anything yet because we just got here and while we all get acclimated to the time zone and changes doing speed drills would be stupid so instead we are skating a lot of laps to get use to the track. During this time it's good for people to figure out what wheels they are going to skate on. Our paces have been in the 17-18 second per lap range which is good for pacing and we have dipped into the 16's which is ridiculously fast because we are pacing and in Colorado that it a dead sprint. I think just about all of our guys will be in the 15 second range when sprinting and the girls will probably be in the 16 range. The track in at least my opinion, is a lot better then last years but that might just be because I kind of knew what to expect this year. Coming out of the turns here is ridiculously fast. Well that's just a quick update I thought I'd give about the track so far, we are about to go skate it again about two hours from when I am typing this.
