Not literally, but figuratively.
That's what I tell the jumpers on the track team when we have an opportunity to do some jumping into the sand outside at the long jump pit during months when there can be several feet of snow on the ground. So, we took advantage of the weather of the past few days and made a trip to the beach today. I'm encouraged that the athletes had a chance to execute a few practice jumps prior to Saturday's first indoor meet. It's always tough to do something technical when you haven't truly practiced it since last May.

That is all. Time to get to bed before tomorrow morning's 4:15am wakeup call to sneak in a 12-miler.
