Last Week of Spring Practice!

I apologize to my frustrated commenter... I have had a very, very busy week! Sarah had her dance recital this weekend, so we had company in town along with lots of activity going on. The state track meet was re-scheduled for Monday due to weather, so I decided at the last minute to ride along with New Albany to do some recruiting. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Today, Tuesday, we will have practice at Ballard XC trail at 3:30. This is our last spring practice!!!!

Everyone has done so well this spring, and I am very thankful to have some of our new runners! Things are looking good for fall!

A few announcements before the workout list:

1. Camp reservations need to be made THIS WEEK... not kidding, y'all! If you are planning to go, Mrs. Lynn Mims needs to know, pronto! :) Otherwise, you will get stuck eating stale bread, sleeping outside, and drinking out of a paper cup rather than a Spartan water bottle!

2. The TIE DYE race is this Saturday at Ballard Park. Race starts at 8:41 a.m., so plan to be there by 8:00-8:15. You can register at Healthworks, and probably still get the cheaper rate.

3. Another alternative: There is a TRACK MEET this Saturday at THS track. It starts at 10:00, and they have changed it... It is FREE to participate (parents and non-runners pay a $1.00 gate ticket price). Also, I was under the impression that runners had to be in the Tupelo school district, but I was wrong. It is for ages 7-14, and runners can enter up to 4 events. This would be a fun opportunity to do some speed stuff and have a track experience. There is no 3200M, but there is a 1600M race for the older age groups.

4. I will have summer mileage charts this afternoon for you. We will talk a lot about our summer running plan, and I am going to make some announcements concerning changes for the fall season. Parents, if you can stick around to hear this, that would be great.

OK, OK... Here is the plan for this week!!!

Groups 1-2: off
Groups 3-5: 3 miles easy

THURSDAY: Strength training of your choice!
Group 1: 30 minutes steady
Group 2: 3 miles
Groups 3-5: 4 miles
