2022 XC Summer Camp Week 3

As we continue with our summer XC camp experience, make sure you are taking care of your body.  You need to eat 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. You probably need to eat a little more than you think you do.  Hydration is also crucial.  A good rule of thumb is drink half of your body weight as a starting point. So if you are 150 lbs, you should be drinking about 75 ounces of fluid a day, or more. Some of you will need to drink more than that.

We are beginning doubles this week.  The second run is a recovery run and is a maximum 30 minutes long.  The purpose of the 2nd run is to give a little extra recovery for our kids doing higher mileage totals.  This run is optional for our beginning runners. If a beginning runner want to add these runs, it should probably be a walk or bike ride to start.  

The link to camp registration is now live. Please register if you haven't already done so. 

If you haven't completed and turned in the yellow assumption of risk forms, please do that immediately.  If you need on, it can be picked up at practice.
