Big North Meet #2 and Saginaw Week

Great workouts last week, a break from racing and back at it this week.  Our 6x800m + 400m was an amazing effort on Friday - well done people!!

Hopefully you're getting in an easy 20-45 minutes today (Saturday) or tomorrow (Sunday).

Here are our week workouts for this week.

Monday October 3   THERE IS NO OFFICIAL PRACTICE.  MR. WARREN AND I BOTH HAVE TO ATTEND A STAFF MEETING AT GHS THAT WILL NOT GET DONE UNTIL 430PM AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO HAVE TO WAIT AROUND FOR 1.5 HOURS AFTER SCHOOL.  SO, GET A NICE EASY 30 MINUTE RUN IN ON YOUR OWN AND THEN DO 3-4 GOOD STRIDE OUTS JUST LIKE WE ALWAYS DO THE DAY BEFORE A RACE.

Tues Oct 4  Big North Conference meet #2 - same teams as we saw at Alpena, which is tough competition.  This meet is on the hilly TCCentral XC course at Courtade Elementary - parents can google directions easily.  Same format as last time  BOYS ALL at 4pm, GIRLS ALL at 430 or 440pm.  Should be back to GHS about 730pm.  Bus will depart GHS 1:30pm, you are excused at 1:15pm.

Wed Oct 5  Easy 30-45 minutes

Thurs Oct 6  1x800m race pace, 6x 400m race pace.  This is called a "cruise interval" day.  Simply meant to help you "feel" race pace.  It will not be hard as we have a race Saturday.

Friday Oct 7 Easy 30 minute run after we are in the parade, or maybe before we are in the parade.  Tentatively planning on us delivering the football in to the stadium to start the football game at 7pm.

Saturday Oct 8  Saginaw Invitational -  ALL INFORMATION HERE  SAGINAW INFORMATION   Bus will depart GHS EARLY - 600am departure.  MAKE NOTE THIS IS A NEW TIME - I HAD TO CHANGE TIME TO 30 MINUTES EARLIER SO WE MAKE OUR RACE ON TIME!!   This is a FAST COURSE and our first real opportunity to crank out a FAST time.  Bus should arrive back at GHS 230pm - 3pm.

Sunday Oct 9 OFF REST

Monday Oct 10 - same as Monday Oct 3 Mr. Warren and I have staff meetings we must attend.  You will be on your own.  I'd really like a LONGER-ISH distance day.  JV - full 40 minutes, Varsity 1 hour of running.
