On Thursday, I will not be able to make practice. I strongly suggest that the captains take charge of the workout, and that workout is a long run over hilly terrain. A great place to do this in Parker is behind Sierra, up in Ponderosa Hills. If you want to run to Sierra MS, or drive to Sierra MS, using that as a starting points gives you some fantastic terrain to run on. Quiet dirt roads with lots of little elevation changes. Heavenly. No need to go fast, just get in a nice overdistance run. For some of you, that might be 60 minutes, for others, it might be 100 minutes. Just make sure you run with someone of your ability level, and get yourself good and tired from running a nice looooong run.
