WMS Cross Country 2022
Parents and athletes,
If you have signed up for XC, get out and run. It is important to get a base of running experience now, don’t wait until team practice starts. For beginners, start by running a mile or so each day or every other day. As you feel better and stronger move up to 2 miles, then 3 miles each other day. For our experienced runners, I would hope you have been going about 3 miles a day average. Once we have been OK’d to start practice, we will break into groups, each determined by your age and ability.
That’s all you need to do to get ready for the season. RUN, RUN, RUN.
Summer Conditioning will begin on the week of 18 July 2022. Until then, all runners should racking up miles (and minutes) on their own in order to meet the goal of 1000 minutes run by the end of the summer. Starting Monday, 18 July, we will have optional practices every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 8:00AM - 9:30AM. More details will follow as we as get a team e-mail distro list built.
Get outside and RUN!
