One month. Four weeks. Cross Country 2014 is coming up quickly. Lets make sure that Week #1 (August 18-August 23) does not feel like Week #1. We want to go into the season feeling like fitness is in progress, strength is coming week by week, and there’s an excitement looking towards the competitions of September. Keep up the great work of your summer training or if you have been relaxed thus far, let’s get started now.
Coming up for the week of July 20-26.
Tuesday — Meet at the LDS church; either 7:00am or 7:30pm. This will be a tempo run; moderate to challenging effort level.
Thursday — Meet at the MSU track at 7:00am. Speed development work. If you cannot make the morning session, yet are hungry to get this session in this week, call me, Coach May, 582-9189, email@example.com and I’ll see if we can get a coach to meet with you at a different time.
Friday — Meet at S. Cottonwood trailhead (S. of town about 18 miles) at 7am. Hilly, long run. A great opportunity to build base strength and fitness.
In 2 weeks we have the opportunity to put our summer fitness to the test. It’s the Bozeman Classic, 5K or 10K (part of Sweet Pea Days). We always have a great representation from the Hawks XC team. It’s a great way (fun way) to put in a hard effort while running with 100’s from our community.
In 3 weeks it’s HARC. Those invited will be those who have “hit” the standard on the Readiness Run (July 29), as well as having been “regulars” at the summer runs.
I’m looking forward to these upcoming 4 weeks. This is where we make great strides towards a successful season. Make the choice to be committed.
