Week 8 Hale XC
It is October Time!
We had 17 men run to Lake Michigan this past Monday which is an annual tradition that has been around for many years. Congrats to Collin and Frank for being 4 timers with the tradition! Two of our freshmen made the journey this year. We had some nice pack running and good runs. We came back Thursday with a 7x3 minute workout, starting at tempo effort and wanting to work down to target 5k effort. It was a solid aerobic week ending with homecoming weekend and an off weekend of racing. The guys should all get an easy 4 mile run and strides in this weekend to help recovery and get the body ready for Monday workout and Thursday race this week!
October racing will be exciting and fast. We look forward to keep getting better and focusing on being our best. The big thing will be guys running for the team and not themselves. That is what will produce special moments. Focus on us, our standards and our daily efforts and great things can happen. For the team!
The team competes at Mccarty Park this week. I believe I will have one van for taking 7 guys and then we will need athletes to get transportation over. Seniors I will look to help out getting athletes there, between them and our van we should be fine for getting everyone there on the short trip.. This is just due to it being an in city meet and our district (all districts really) struggling with week day bussing.
Parents, please plan to pick up your son from Mccarty Park at the conclusion of awards and after excused by the coaches. This will be around 6:15 p.m.
Pasta party Wedneday is at the Sayeg's. Thank you! Address is 3054 S 96 St, West Allis
Meet Info here
Friday will be normal after school practice. Then, Saturday morning we will have practice at 8:30 a.m. We will meet at Minooka Park for our long run. The coaches and seniors should be able to help take a couple guys that need a ride, but please have them let us know at practices this week if they need a ride. We meet by the sunset dr. parking lot, and usually just park in the neighborhood there and walk in or to get dropped off.
