This is the locker room at the Payne Center. If there is something for an older guy to prop their leg on they will find it! A few actually bring a step ladder for occasions where no bench is available. On a side note, I went to a nice gym in Sydney and they had a sign that the blow dryer was to be used ONLY for hair on your head. Severe penalties including dismissal from the gym would apply if the blow dryer was used on other hairy areas. You know that there had to have been an incident.
I am racing the Baton Rouge Beach (there is a lake) Half Marathon this weekend with some friends. I raced this last year with a self inflicted injury (too much pre race festivities) - last year's race report.
I have done no speed work but I hope that a month of running hills in Sydney will pay off with another PR!
