Summer Training 2020 Week 2

Follow the training calendar for those times you can't make practice due to illness or family vacations or whatever takes up part of your summer.

We meet at Hillcrest each morning at 6 am in the north parking lot by the concessions building. We will start practice each day with a symptoms check for all athletes, coaches, and super seniors. Remember if you have any symptoms, don't come to practice.  

On travel run days you can either meet at Hillcrest or at the site of the run, whichever works best for your travel arrangements. For each of the travel runs, I have links of directions from Hillcrest to the destinations.  I will put a time for the day that will include time to get from Hillcrest so you know what time to meet if you are going straight to the site. Runners can be picked up at the site of the travel run or back at Hillcrest depending on the transportation arrangements you have made for your child. Your child will not be left to wait alone at any of the travel run sites.

UHSAA Announcement

The UHSAA just officially canceled all spring sports and activities for this school year. 

If anyone has pictures of our seniors, please send them to me so I can honor them in some way.

New Mileage tracker for the distance crew

With the announcement that we aren't going back to school, and now that that all spring sports are cancelled, we won't be able to have any group practices until at least the end of May. You are all going to have to keep each other accountable.   I've made a google sheet that you all should use track your miles. The benefit is that everyone can see what is being logged so we can encourage each other to keep the runs and workouts going.  You can log either miles or minutes.

Remember how competitive our region is. We need to keep our mileage base up the rest of the spring so we can be competitive and qualify for state, no matter the qualifying procedure, which may change.

Distance Workouts for the week of March 23

This week is an opportunity to build up base. So doubles are a good idea.  If you were just getting started don't do the second runs just yet. Your two runs should be in the morning and the afternoon in whichever order makes the most sense for you.  Make sure you are safe on your runs. The distances are for the varsity boys, so cut down to the appropriate mileage level for you.

Make sure you are getting adequately warmed up especially before hard efforts.  Take care of your legs with stretching and rolling. 

Monday 30 minute recovery run
8 mile run with hills hard effort
do strength including bands

Hurdle Drills

Husky Hurdlers, I hope you're finding time to work hurdles into your workouts.  Here's a useful extension of the lead leg over the hurdle and against the wall drill we do sometimes.  Try it!



You've seen most of these drills before.  (The white tape on the line between lanes 3 and 4 (?) are 10 meters--"ten steps"--apart.)  There are also some new ones you should try.  A couple of notes:
  1.  Don't EVER go lead or trail leg over a hurdle in the wrong direction.  Sheesh, that's a good way to hurt yourself, even in a drill.  (What they call "Crazy Legs" doesn't matter because you're not traveling perpendicular to the hurdle.)
  2.   Notice how almost all of these O'Neill hurdlers keep their shoulders really square to the hurdle and how they work on their arms all the time, no matter what they're doing.  Both of these things help all of them to be better hurdlers.
  3.   Really try to 3-step when you're working on rhythm drills (hurdles 10 meters apart).

3/16 - 3/21 workout schedules for all event groups

We will be posting workout schedules for you to try to keep up with while we are out of school.  Keep working out so that we will be ready when meets are allowed to resume.  The coaches will not be able to run practices and groups need to stay small so do the best you can.  If you can't make it to the track, do something as close to the workout as you can in your own neighborhood.  Stay safe above all else.

2020 Hillcrest Track Fundraiser

We are trying a new approach for our fundraiser this year. Instead of selling merchandise and getting a small return, we our going to try a donation campaign.  We will have additional details once practice starts, but it will run through success fund. The campaign dates will be Feb. 24th - April 24th.  I'm hoping we can beat our total form popcorn sales from two years ago.

Simplot Games Info & Schedule

Athlete Check-In: The Running Event check-in tables are located at the southwest end of the Arena Floor. Girls are to check in at one table and boys at the other. Field Event participants will check in at the field event location.
Athletes and coaches must listen to the Announcer for calls. All athletes participating in the running events must check in at the Clerk’s tables. After checking in, the athlete must go to the marshaling area. Once an athlete checks in and enters the marshaling area, they must stay there until escorted to the starting area. No athletes will be allowed to enter the marshaling area after the clerks have checked through the heats (3rd call). If athletes are late to check-in, they will be disqualified even if the race has not been run yet.
First call will be approximately 20 minutes before the event. Second call at 15 minutes before the event. Last call is 10 minutes before the event. If an athlete is not checked in by the last call, they will automatically be scratched.
Athlete Warm-Up: Athletes may warm up in designated areas only. An athlete warming up inside of the flagged-off area or in the hallways may be disqualified.
Arena Practice Times: Arrangements have been made for the Simplot Games participants to practice at the Holt Arena on Wednesday 6-8:30 p.m., Thursday 2:00-4:00 p.m., Friday 7-8:15 a.m. and Saturday 7-7:45 a.m. Simplot Games volunteers will be setting up for the meet and there will be some ISU athletes working out at this time. All Simplot Games athletes should conduct themselves in a proper manner and show consideration to the ISU athletes who will also be using the facilities.
Footwear: Because of the wood track and large number of athletes, spiked shoes will not be allowed in the preliminary races on Thursday and Friday. Spiked shoes ARE allowed in the Thursday preliminaries in the Boys and Girls 60m Hurdles for safety concerns.  Spiked shoes are allowed for all Saturday event finals. Only 3/16″ needle spikes will be allowed and are available for purchase at the Simplot Games Store in the northeast corner of Holt Arena. In the jumping events, spikes of ¼” are allowed for both preliminaries and finals. Athletes footwear will be checked prior to each event.
For Friday’s preliminary races, athletes will need a flat, rubber-soled shoe. Removing the spikes from a spiked shoe and leaving just the plastic plate is not acceptable and very dangerous as the shoes slip on the wooden track.
Idaho State University: Simplot Games participants are guests of Idaho State University and should be courteous and respectful of college students who are in class. ISU has generously opened many of their recreational facilities at Reed Gym and the Pond Student Union Building to Simplot Games participants who wear the current Simplot Games T-shirt. Participants may use the bowling, billiards and other facilities (except for the climbing wall) at the ISU student rate. If under 18, you must be accompanied by an adult (coach or adult accompanying team).
Locker Rooms: Male athletes will dress and shower in locker rooms on the southeast side of Holt Arena. Female athletes will use the northeast locker rooms. Towels will not be provided. Please supply your own. Simplot Games cannot be responsible for any items left in the locker room during the meet or left in the bleachers throughout the meet. Each team is responsible for providing their own locks to protect possessions.
