VYPE U: BACS athletes on the grind
During these unprecedented times, it's important for athletes to keep in shape in any way they can.
Although the TAPPS spring season is over, these two Broncos have continued to push themselves to their limits to make sure they stay at the top of their game.
Savannah Sweeney, a senior on the BACS track team, has been building her endurance in different ways during her time at home. Along with running, biking outside has come to be one of her favorite forms of exercise.
Junior tennis player Christian Lee has also been working hard during his time off. Due to an injury, he has been unable to practice tennis, but that hasn't stopped him. He's been keeping active in other ways.
"While in quarantine, I have been going to Rush Cycle in League City quite often. It offers a full body workout to the beat of the catchiest music, resulting in an improved body and mind after every class," Lee stated. "Though it closed down during quarantine, I have a sister and a friend who work there, so I'm able to go all the time, as they have full access to the facility at any time."
Although it is very sad to watch their seasons pass them by, these athletes have motivated themselves in their own ways.
"I would like to think that if 'the grind never stops,' if you will, that even in quarantine, I can make the most of the time I have off and keep my health in pretty good shape, Lee remarked. "With a good amount of extra time on my hands, I am able to stay active; really, it's a win-win, for I can spend time in activity rather than in boredom, and the benefits keep my mind and body in a good place. I believe that staying active while I'm off will prove to be advantageous when I'm back on."
It is inspiring to see what can be accomplished by athletes when given such a large obstacle to overcome.
