Parent Meeting re:College Running

Learning the ins and outs of competing at the college level, Wednesday night 7:15p room G10.  This is for parents of Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, to learn about all things running in college.  If you feel like your son/daughter might consider running at the college level, please come.

Week of January 25th

For the week of January 25, please plan to switch Tuesday for Thursday.  On Tuesday if you will go through our stride efficiency routine at the end of a 30 minute easy run (warm up), that would be perfect.  Let’s go with 6-8 X 75m striders, followed by abdominal, hip strength work.

When you return to school on Wednesday the new sheets will be up.  Mileage goes up this week by about 10-15%, and Thursday will be a challenging workout.

Also please confirm with your parents your thoughts about Simplot.  I would like a final count by Feb. 1 of who is going.

See you all on Thursday.


Thank you,     Clint

winter training

Welcome to 2016 and Welcome to Winter Training.

We are now starting our winter fitness training in preparation for the 2016 track season.  Students will find peers to run with every day after school in the hallway near the training room (trophy hall).  Coaches will be present every Tuesday and Thursday.  These two days will be our primary strength days, as well as structured run days.

Training guidelines will be posted on the wall near the cross country office, giving guidance for each week (Monday-Saturday).
January‘s focus will be based on building an aerobic base, as well as general strength.

February will see a bit more specific work as we close in on the upcoming track season.

Please join us.  Call Coach May with any questions, 600-9024.

2 More Flickr Files

David Madril has shared two more files from the 2015 XC season. He’s thrilled to have you view his photos and hopes you’ll find some to print and save. The files include pictures of Billings Senior and Bozeman. Here are the links from the Butte meet and NXN Regionals:

Pics and December Training Info

Hi All.

First: here is what David Madril has to say about his Flickr photos:

I’ve just checked both Flickr and Shutterfly photos I’ve posted and have found that I can in fact print photos from Flickr but cannot
do so with Shutterfly without registering into it and I’m assuming a cost. Anyone wishing to print a photo they like from my Flickr
account can easily do so and they certainly have my permission.I enjoy what I do so I don’t wish any proprietary rights to any of them as it’s for the kids anyway.

Second: From Coach May
December Training–

While all formal coaching (presence and specific instructions) will be on hold for December, your personal running routine is encouraged.

—  All runners who worked through the cross country season as a Level 1 or Level 2 runner are encouraged to build towards a weekly habit of 4 runs per week.  That can be accomplished by progressing from twice in one week, to three times the following, and then four times the week after that.  Another strategy would be to simply start with 4 days a week and simply stick to the task.  Each week should include:  (1) long run, 30-40 minutes.  (1-2) easy pace, shorter runs, 12-15 minutes, and (1-2) moderate pace, 20 minutes.

—  It is also a good idea to begin the habit of restarting some core strength training, (1-2) times per week.

—  All runners who worked through the cross country season as a Level 3 or Level 4 runner are encouraged to build towards a weekly habit of 5 runs per week.  That can be accomplished by progressing from twice in one week, to three times the following, and then four times the week after that.  Another strategy would be to simply start with 5 days a week and simply stick to the task.  Each week should include:  (1) long run, 40-50 minutes.  (1-2) easy pace, shorter runs, 18-25 minutes, and (1-2) moderate pace, 30 minutes.
—  It is also a good idea to begin the habit of restarting some core strength training, (1-2) times per week.

Please call or email Coach May if specific questions come to mind.   582-9189  or  clint.may@bsd7.org

Caleb’s Video Clip

The Chronicle didn’t recognize the Bozeman XC team’s recent success at Nationals……yet. Hopefully that’s coming soon. Our teams are now 8th (boys) and 19th (girls) best in the country! That’s impressive. Bozeman has reason to be proud of the BHS  Cross Country program.

Meanwhile, here’s another video highlighting Caleb Allen:
