Monday Oct 10 - again Mr. Warren and I have teachers meetings we must be at so there is no official practice. You are on your own. Two weeks ago, our monday practice was a LONG day. Today is also a "long" day. On your own you are responsible for getting in a LONG run. Varsity, last time we did a solid 8-9 miler down rails to trails. That would be a perfect run again for this Monday. JV should go between 5-6. Just a longer sustained run, no "tempo" needed in the middle. If possible run with your teammates - this is the best way to stay motivated with hold a steady solid pace.
Tuesday - short and easy and we discuss Saginaw and hand out medals.
Wednesday Oct 12 - WE WILL RUN AT THE COUNTRY CLUB ON M-32 WEST OF TOWN IMMEDIATELY AFTER SCHOOL. GET A RIDE THERE OR RIDE WITH ME OR WITH MR. WARREN. WE HAVE SEATS FOR YOU IF YOU NEED A RIDE. PLEASE HAVE PARENTS PICK YOU UP THERE AT THE COUNTRY CLUB AFTER PRACTICE (430PM) The workout will be a medium distance run with some "hills" and some "finishes" - a number yet to be determined but this is a hard workout.
Thursday - short and easy and its my mom's birthday.
Friday - on the GHS track. 2 mile warmup, 13x400 starting with race pace then faster, faster, fastest and then fasterest. 2 mile cool down.
