Beth likes to talk about quad size. She's actually an expert on it (she was quoted in the New York Times on the subject). So, I like to listen to her quad talk, the girl knows what she's speaking about. Beth said I needed to get my quads measured. As she pulled out the measuring tape, I asked her how she knew where to measure the circumference from. She said : "the biggest part!" as if it was obvious. I'm new to this track thing though.
I am now aware of the official quad measuring procedure. You might want to consult it for yourself.
My magic number: 48.5. That's centimeters by the way. We're in America. I don't know why quad-size is measured in cm. (Oh wait, there is a reason. Read it HERE). Beth says that my quads are going to get bigger while I'm at the track in LA. We'll measure again in 2 weeks and see where I'm at.
