Setting up next week a bit early due to the off weekend. It will be a great mental refresh and opportunity to gear up for an awesome October of racing.
So I'd like to keep it pretty open weekend for guys, but here's what I would like for weekend running. All guys should take at least one day off. I would like the following guys to do the associated minutes (Varsity guys will take care of business). There will be no meet up with coaches, but thinking guys can get together and get run in. I have already heard of many groups of guys planning to meet up and run which is AWESOME.
Liam/Matthew/Ethan F/Brad/Josh/Brennan to do 45-50 minute run, can talk to each other about meeting up Sunday or doing on own. Do 6-8x 20 second strides during the last 20 minutes of the run.
Kenny/Tristan/Nick/Joey/Cole/Cole same as above, 40-45 minutes.
All frosh/others run of 30-35 minutes and 6-8x strides during the run either day on own (Recommend meeting up with teammates! :) )
Weeks Ahead (especially for newer parents!)
We will enter October fit, fast and hopefully refreshed/eager after the off weekend of racing! We race close to home at Mccarty Park this week in our last 'regular season' invitational before conference, sectionals and state the next three weeks! Any guys not in the top 7 after conference will run in the Grant Park JV meet as the final meet of the year on Thursday, October 18th. The 7 varsity guys at the end of the year will run at sectionals on October 20th at Mitchell Park where they look to advance then to the state meet at Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids on October 27th.
Our awards banquet is planned for Tuesday, October 30th at 5:00 p.m.!
