FIRST TIME TRIAL and PRACTICE SCHEDULE

Remember, this time trial means nothing really.  Where you are today is not where you will be in October when it really matters.  This type of workout is just another step in the goal of being faster one day at a time.  Each race our varsity can and will change.  I will give out varsity uniforms to the top 9 (10 if i have another varsity uniform).

Teamp Camp 2016 a success and 8/22 - 8/26 practice

Well team camp 2016 is here and gone and I would definitely say it was one of the best we've ever had.  Great weather, great trails, amazing swimming, bridge jumping, Blackrocks jumping, Morgan Falls and Marquette, senior rock and half of a movie.

It was nice to just have runs where we didn't have to worry about time or distance, just running and enjoying the sights, sounds, and nature...

Remember we are at Aspen Park 9am all week August 22-26th.

Monday - we will do a longer run, 2 mile warmup, and then 3-8 miles depending on who you are.
Tuesday - easy and shorter.
Wednesday - our first real "HARD" day - 3x small hill, 3x medium hill, 3x longer hill, and longer cool down.
Thursday - shorter and easy
Friday - 2x mile @ hard, preferably faster than race pace. longer cool down.
Saturday - on your own - should be a longer run or if you're a newcomer day OFF
Sunday - off

Monday 8/29 -- We will meet at GHS at 3pm for practice,   I will hand out UNIFORMS STARTING AT 2:30pm  - If you want first choice at uniforms be there at 2:30pm.  room 120 Longer distance day with a 15 minute tempo run in the middle.

Tuesday 8/30 -- Again at GHS 3pm, meet in room 120  - shorter easy day --  Official TEAM PICTURES will be right at 3pm, don't be late!!

Wed 8/31 CLARE INVITATIONAL - 9th graders are first race at 4:40pm.   BUS DEPARTS GHS AT 1:45pm.  FRESHMAN ORIENTATION FOR XC RUNNER FRESHMAN IS AT 1PM UNTIL 1:40PM THEN WE DEPART FOR THE MEET.

WEDNESDAY 8/31 is also FRESHMAN ORIENTATION - I have just received news that there will be an ALTERNATE freshman orientation at 12noon on this date.  I am no sure who will run the show, but parents/students who will not be able to attend regular orientation in the evening should attend at NOON WEDNESDAY!!

Thurs 9/1  - 3pm GHS - fairly short, easy day, talk about meet results
Friday 9/2 through Monday 9/5 you are on your own to enjoy your last free weekend with your parents/relatives/friends.  BE SURE TO RUN ON YOUR OWN.  This is one of the most important parts of our season and if you take 4 days off you set your fitness back one week.
