2022 XC Summer Camp Week 11/Racing Season Week 1 Premier Invitational

 This is the last week of summer training before school starts next week and is the last week for summer mileage totals. 

The workout plan will now flip, with the primary practices being in the afternoon and the recovery runs moving to morning. We will also change our meeting place.  We will now be meeting in the space between the gym and fieldhouse.

Our first high school meet is Saturday, so registermyathlete, the $60 participation fees, and physicals need to be taken care of this week.  The registration deadline is Thursday morning, so in order to compete in the first race, that will all need to be taken care of by Wednesday. 

With the move to afternoon practices, hydration during the day is even more important as there will be more sweat loss.  Small water bottles that can be carried may be beneficial on some of our runs.  We will have access to water fountains on most of our runs, but they aren't always in convenient parts of the run.

Monday August 8 - 30 minutes morning recovery run 3 pm speed work and race tactics and techniques 

Tuesday August 9 - 30 minutes morning recovery run 3 pm practice vine street run

Wednesday August 10 - 30 minutes morning recovery run 3 pm practice Highland run

Thursday August 11 - 30 minutes morning recovery run 3 pm practice tempo 

Friday August 12 - 30 minutes morning recovery run 3 pm practice pre- race routines Ghostrider

Saturday August 13 - Premier Invitational bus leaves Hillcrest 6:45 am we return to Hillcrest around noon

Time Trial

 We had a good morning with the time trial and breakfast.  Thanks to the Canals for breakfast and all the parents who acted as race marshals directing traffic.  After the last two years, it was nice to have a decent size group for the time trial again.

Race results can be found at athletic.net as will most of our race results for the season.

2022 Summer XC Camp Week 10 (Time Trial Week)

 We are approaching the end of summer training with only 2 weeks until the school year begins.  This will be our last week of meeting in the morning during the week.  We will be introducing new training modalities this week with our first work at race and threshold paces as we get closer to racing season.  Remember the afternoon runs will help you recover to be able to run harder on workouts.  The harder workout days are the most important days to get the 2nd run in.
