We have been crushing personal goals for a couple years now. Tribe members throwing down their first or fastest ever 5,10,25 and 100km races… or something like that. So this morning we shook it up a bit. Coming off a great sprint session at Commonwealth last week we thought Monday would be a great time to introduce everyone to the shuttle run test. It does not sound that hard. 2 lines, 25 yards apart from each other, go there and back 6 times to total 300 yards. Try and finish under a minute, rest for 3 minutes, do it again, rest for another 3 minutes, do it again. Not sounding hard is different from actually doing it as everyone can attest to this morning. A couple NHL team do this test and players must get under a minute in all 3 rounds in order to pass. Just this past weekend, the Bruins top 3 draft picks all failed this test. It is not easy. The tribe decided to do it in the dark at 6am and I gotta say, you guys did amazing! Not naming any former teammates but there was some better form on display than I have seen at previous training camps. Didn’t see any pukers this morning which is good! Did see a couple new people which is even better! Have a great Monday!
