Summer Training

Good morning,

Thanks to all 12-15 kids who showed up yesterday to help Maroney and I put away all the Pole Vaulting equipment.  Last year, we had significantly less help, and it took us almost double the time.  The pole vault pits are brand new, very expensive, so we are happy they are put away correctly.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the help.

In return for your help, a new training program was given out.  This program is for becoming strong for the start of your fall running season, not for you to win the Georgetown Half Marathon in August.  It is designed to be full of choices and individual decisions, but also to build intrinsic motivation by giving you, the athlete, a lot of buy-in.  I designed it like a restaurant menu, where you have to make sure you get your weekly servings of all your types of workouts every week.  Make sure to make your "diet" varied and complete, but like any restaurant, choose the items that appeal to you.  The trick is to avoid doing workouts that are easy and simple (like refined white sugar) and build in some complex demanding workouts (like broccoli and quinoa). I think it is self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, you can always email me or text me anytime this summer.

Also, if you choose to work with Coach Michael, (which I think is a great idea, he is on board with our program and I think he can supplement it very well), his email is  He has helped a few of our athletes become stronger and fitter, and the summertime is a perfect place to build up that power!

Enough of the boring stuff, below is an extremely NSFW-Langauage video about a boxing coach in NYC.  While he is a very "honest" fellow, I think you will get a chuckle from it.  Just don't repeat any of the inappropriate words he says in front of your little brothers and sisters!   Coach Whitenack sent it to me, and I laughed and laughed and laughed.  Maybe we can get this guy on staff next year!
