After countless miles on the roads/treadmill/grass, gym reps, pool intervals, yoga sun salutations & downward dogs over the summer practices, we are finally at the official start of the fall 2019 season this coming Monday, August 5th. This preseason period is very important as the first race of the season is just about a month away.
Practices are from 4 pm - 6 pm. MWF for Intermediates & Mon through Fri for JV/V. Intermediates can come to Tues & Thurs to make up days missed or just to get some extra training.
We will also have optional morning swim & conditioning practices Mon - Fri from 8 am - 10 am until the start of school. We'll take full advantage of the extra time in the summer to get in more aerobic base work before the school year begins. Morning practice schedule during the school year TBD.
Those of you who have already contacted Coach Jack regarding trips, just keep up with our typical base runs & we'll see you when you get back. Contact Coach Jack if you have any questions.
