XC Camp/Summer Training Week 3

We are starting the second daily run this week.  It will be hot, so make sure you are hydrated and pay attention to air quality.  The afternoon and evening is when air quality is usually worst. I would prefer that beginners wait until next week when hopefully this heat wave has passed.  

As we continue with our summer training camp experience, make sure you are taking care of your body.  You need to be eating enough protein and carbs to fuel your body through the training of the summer. The amount of calories is dependent on your size and miles totals, so fuel up.  Hydration is also crucial.  A good rule of thumb is drink half of your body weight. So if you are 150 lbs, you should be drinking about 75 ounces of fluid a day.

The camp registration site is live, make sure you go online and register. Please register by the end of June.  

Remember that physicals are required for the high school season.  If you can't get into your regular doctor, TOSH will be doing physicals during the summer.  They we will be doing them in the late afternoon/evening on June 29th and July 27th.  Registration will be required at least 4 days in advance.  Appointments can be made at (801) 314-4119

If you haven't completed and turned in the yellow assumption of risk forms, please do that immediately.  I will have additional copies of all the forms at practice each day.

Schedule for the week:

Monday June 14 Bonneville Shoreline Trail - meet at Hillcrest at 6 for the caravan or at 6:25 at Hidden Valley Park

Friday June 18 Jordan River  Trail - meet at Hillcrest at 6 am for the caravan or at Jordan River Rotary Park at 6:20 

Saturday June 19 Recovery Run - do this run on your own, preferably with family or friends for experienced runners, this should be 45 - 60 minutes long; for beginning runners it should be be 30 - 45 minutes.  Cross training would also be a good option for this day.  If you are on a family bike ride or hike that day, that can count as your weekend recovery run Do it early before the heat really hits


High School mileage goal - 36.36 miles is the weekly average you need to hit for the summer

Middle School mileage goal - 25 miles is the weekly average you need to hit for the summer

Most of you will be a little less than that average for the first few weeks and it is ok. For example, I did 33 miles this week and I am planning hitting the 400 with miles to spare
