Off-Season Updates 6-17-17
-The 2017 XC season countdown is on! Many of our athletes have returned to consistent training, meeting their teammates at BHS. All athletes must have an updated physical and consent form on file by August 9th. All physicals for the 17-18 school year must have been completed on or after April 15th, 2017. A physical completed in March 2017 for the Track and Field season is not valid for the 2017 Cross Country season.
-Wednesday, June 21st is the Team Expectations Meeting at Huron Meadows. We'll meet at our course at 4:30. Our runners will determine what they will accomplish in 2017 and will develop the blueprint to see it through. Incoming runners are encouraged to attend as this is an excellent opportunity for them to meet the team and get a feel for the program.
-Our optional off-season workouts begin Monday, July 10th at 8 a.m. In addition to running, we will incorporate our supplemental routines and spread the gospel of the little things (nutrition, hydration, attitude, rest, etc.) and training nuances. Ideally, all XC runners will be consistently training together at these workouts.
-New to this summer's training are the Single Track Trail Wednesday runs. These are challenging trail runs recommended for experienced runners. Athletes who can run 7 miles or more with relative ease are encouraged to attend.
-The Kensington Camp is Thursday, July 13th from 11 - 4. All XC runners and mid-distance/distance track runners are welcome to attend. We'll meet near the North Martindale picnic shelter.
-Saturday long runs at Kensington are advised for athletes running higher mileage. We will meet at the East Boat Launch near the South Marindale picnic shelter and start promptly at 8 a.m.
