My high school football strength and conditioning coach was very fond of yelling “ You got 30 seconds to run 100 yards” then he’d click his stop watch, which I’m convince he even wore to bed. It never took me 30 seconds to run 100 yards but at the end of the 30 seconds, he’d yell it again! I quickly learned that the faster I got to the end the more time I’d have to rest.
On the other hand were guys who chose to live and die by the slow and steady wins the race mentality. These guys would just take 30 seconds to go north, then 30 seconds to go south, never stopping until the drill was over.
