With early morning practice leading into a late night arrival in Grand County, followed by a wicked early morning Chloe wake-up call preceded an all day ski festival going without having a day to sleep in this morning, that means this blog post might be a little incoherent.
Every day is important this week for training. We got pace changers on the track after school tomorrow, and a creative run led by the captains on Tuesday.
Hills, hills and more hills are on the menu for Wednesday, and then the seniors are going to be in charge of 200 m repeats on Thursday.
Friday, we won't train before school, but we will have an after school practice of really hard five minute intervals.
Saturday is on your own, sprint ladders, and Sunday is your day to sit down, watch the Super Bowl and see how much you can eat without getting physically ill.
Of course, we have gymnastics on Tuesday and Thursday nights as well.
These are all crucial days of training. I expect to see most, if not all, of the distance kids there. Even if you are sick, still come by, just to check in. Remember, just as important as training is recovery. That means going to be at a good hour, eating good healthy foods, practicing excellent hygiene and drinking plenty of water. All of these things require varying degrees of sacrifice, but believe me, at the end of the year, it is worth it. Please make sure to recover as well as you train, everyone, that's the ticket to reaching your potential.
