If you are NOT going to camp with us here is what we'll be doing.
Monday Aug 18th - 6 mile run. If you are not going to camp I'd do exactly what we've done at Aspen so far. Do a 1-2 mile warmup, stretch, cals. Then do an easy longer run. Beginners can go from 20-30 minutes. Experienced people looking to make varsity can go 30-6 minutes.
Tuesday - 10 mile or 6 mile. At camp we'll be going longer this day. Our run at camp includes a stop at Chapel Falls, a swim in Lake Superior, a stop at "Senior Rock" for pictures (Grand Portal) a quick swim at Mosquito River/Beach, then back to the beginning. If you are not going to camp try to get a LONGER run in today. At this point in the season i do not care about speed or intensity. Just go longer and start building up your endurance.
Wed - Today is the day we go a bit harder at camp. We have a 3.5 mile out and back run totalling 7 miles for the "varsity-ish" runners. On first part of our run we'll start easy and gradually build up, running harder and faster. When we reach the turn around point we'll stop at the river, take a break and then run back to the start "easy." If you are not going to camp you can do basically the same thing on a route of your choosing. You do not have to go 7 miles, but instead go as far as you feel you're fit enough to do. 2 miles hard, 2 miles easy back home would be a great start. If you can go further, do it!
Thursday - we'll be on Mackinac Island. Most people will simply do an easy 30-40 minute run then we go shopping and eat lunch.
Friday - When you're back in Gaylord it's time to stick with it on your own. An easy 20-60 minutes should be on tap for you today.
Saturday - Good day to go longer again. Beginners should shoot for 30-40 minutes. Experienced varsity runners should run for 60+ minutes.
Sunday - Let your self recover and have a day off.
