SUMMER RUNNING for GHSXC

Well - we are 26 days into our summer training!!  That's 1/3 of the way to the start of our season.  Right now you FRESHMEN and NEW runners should be at or near 30 miles of training so far.  Returning GHSXC runners should be at 40 miles of training.  These are the miles you need to be eligible for team camp on August 15-18th.

If you are interested in MORE miles - our 300 mile club runners should be at or near 100 miles total - That's right where I am now, because i want one of these sweet sweatshirts that we give out!!

It sounds like we've had good turnout on Wednesdays for our runs but Saturdays have been light - i was there Saturday and we had about 9 runners.  Remember you must have FOUR of these runs to be eligible for team camp also!

get running, enjoy your summer and get prepared!!

SATURDAY JUNE 4TH IS OUR FIRST SCHEDULED "SUMMER RUN" FOR GHSXC

Just the other day someone said "I can't make it to practice on Saturday (as in tomorrow, June 4th) --

I JUST WANT TO REMIND YOU ALL THIS IS NOT PRACTICE.  OUR SUMMER RUNS ARE NOT PRACTICE.  OFFICIAL GHSXC PRACTICE STARTS AUGUST 10TH.

What we do at Aspen Park on Wednesdays (6pm) and Saturdays (10am) is just run.  We meet in the parking lot by the tennis courts, chat a bit and run.  How far?  Some go 2 miles, some go 3, some go 5, some go 8, some to 10, some crazies go 12.  It's "go as far as you want, as slow/fast as you want" time.  There is no structure to our workouts until August 10th.  Starting August 10th I will tell you how far to run, how fast to run and where to run.  Until then ... enjoy your freedom!!

Hope to see you tomorrow at 10am, Aspen Park!!
