Well, after some indoor workouts and constant adjustments, we’re nearing our first race this week. Phew… it’s been awhile.
This week is pretty busy and with the start of school, it’s important to remember that SLEEP is a really important part of athletic and academic success. If you haven’t already, dial back that bedtime to make sure you’re getting at least 8 hours or more of quality sleep each night.
This week’s schedule:
Monday 9/13 – 3:40 @ MV. PICTURE DAY!! Please make sure you’re at practice to receive your uniform and be in a team picture. We’ll get uniforms, go change, do the picture, change again and then head to Mountain View park for some timed intervals. Then back to school for a little bit of strength.
Tuesday 9/14 – 3:40 @ MV. Pre-meet day. Easy 20-minute run and 4 strides with a good stretching session. Tonight – Pack your bag with the following so you don’t forget something in the morning.
