I got to sleep in until 8:00 today: delicious. I had a good workout, doing a loop that I learned about yesterday in the woods and on the roads. There were five pieces, each supposedly a little slower than 5k pace, and my HR at the end of each was 178, 181, 184, 183, and 188, respectively. So it was a good workout.

In other sporting news, Williams sports will be on CBS today:
Senior crew captain Meaghan Rathvon will be one of the featured athletes on the CBS NCAA Spring Championships Highlights Show airing this Saturday (7/1) at 3:00 p.m. EST. The CBS highlight show chronicles the NCAA championship events that were not televised live.

Rathvon overcame injury to help lead the Ephs to their second NCAA Division 3 women's rowing title in the past five years. Footage of the championship weekend and a brief feature on Rathvon will be included.

Other Eph spring teams may also appear on the show as all six Williams teams that entered a spring NCAA tourney finished in the top seven -- women's track & field (2nd), men's tennis and men's track & field (4th), women's tennis (5th) and softball (7th).
I'll be busy with registration during that time, but I'm glad Williams sports are getting publicity on actual normal television (not television that you pay for, like cable), and getting publicity on television at all. That's great.

I wonder if they will mention that Williams is once again, for the third year in a row, #1 in both academics (US News) and #1 in athletics (Sears Cup). Probably CBS sports doesn't care about academics. Too bad, really.
