Can you believe this is WEEK 6 of the GHSXC SEASON?????!!!!!!!!!!!! We have improved a lot, we have seen some fast times, but we are also nowhere close to where we will be in 6 more weeks. We are just starting some speedwork now and have begun to learn what "pacing" feels like. In the next week we will hit it hard. Mon, Wed and Friday will all be 'hard' days and we do not race until next week when we have our first Big North Conference race in Traverse City on Tues Sept 22.
Here is the week workouts.
Monday - Sept 14 -- LONG RUN. Down Hayes Road to Dumas Park, get drink, stretch. Down to Aspen Park for a good longer trail run. Back to Dumas, drink. Back to GHS. This will be one of our longest runs of the season and it is going to be WARM. BRING A WATER BOTTLE to put in my van so you can get a drink at Aspen. JV/younger runner/new people 6-7 miles. Varsity 8-10 miles.
Tues - short and easy
Wed - 2 mile warmup, then HILLS x 8
