Tuesday 8/26/08-kids met at the high school and completed a very easy run followed by a mile of 4 corners (push-ups, burpees, jumpin jacks and mountain climbers) followed by team core work inside- good easy day before tomorrow’s long run- the last on our summer cycle. Can you believe we’ve been at it for 9 weeks? Amazing summer of running!!!

Monday 8/25/08– Kids warmped up for 13 minutes- stretched as a team- then ran their respective steady state runs- the majority of the kids ran about 6 miles of work- Fergs looked amazing- probably should have run up with the top group.  Caroline Shelby and Becky all had great runs averaging a little under 7 a mile.  Pretty good work- Katie showed up a little later and completed a slightly longer 6.4 mile course in 43 flat aferaging around 6:45.  MANcuso  led everyone home in 53:30 for an average of 5:56 pace for nine miles- Mancuso’s never looked stronger- McKee was right behind him with Sameer following just in front of Wallack, Max, and company.  A total of about 11 mile for the top dogs- everyone else about 8 total.  Great day with few exceptions.  One of the longer days of the year will be Wednesday- weather’s supposed to be perfecto!!! Should be great.  Tomorrow we’re meeting up for some easy running and plenty of form drills and core work.
