When:3:50pm-5:15pm Monday through Friday
We will practice on the first day of school!
After school, athletes should quickly change into running clothes. Boys can leave their bags in Coach Reagan's room (806). Girls should leave their bags in Coach Jackson's room (). Be on the upper field ready to run by 3:50! Runners will not be able to participate until his/her physical is cleared!
Athletes should have a watch, water bottle, and proper running shoes-- preferably from a running specialty store such as Big Peach Running Company

Log your miles through runningahead.com. You can do this on your phone with the RunForth App.
Any miles logged between May 23 & Aug 1 will count towards incentives!
These plans are meant as a solid minimum amount of mileage this summer. You can do more, but keep it at an EZ pace.

Most of the miles you run will be LSD (Long Slow Distance) type miles. We'll throw in some other training too, but the summer should be a time for making a base for what we'll build in the fall. We need you to be a strong, confident runner, and injury free!
Some guidance for picking the right plan:
If you've participated in a Jr XC program, or spent lots of years playing a running sport, then you can count this as at least a year of running. Ask a coach if you're unsure!
What about cross training??
This is a great question. Unless you're injured (and a coach knows), these miles should be above your minimum plan. Remember that we are training to be runners, so running should be the focus! No more than 10% of your miles towards rewards can be cross training.
400m (or yards) of swimming = 1mile running
3miles biking = 1mile of running.
Any other activity (elliptical, aqua-jogging, etc), use this time conversion: 10min = 1mile of running
Make sure to include this in your log notes! For example, If you log 3 miles for a 9 mile bike ride, then put 'biking' in the notes line.
