Summer Mileage Logs Going Google

In order for coaches to be able to monitor the progress of athletes while training, athletes can keep us up to date by using the LINK to our new Google Doc Training Log.  Summer runners should open up the Google Doc, go to File - Make a Copy, then add their own name to the top of the document and SHARE it with the coaches.

There will be paper calendars shared with runners to help keep that visual reminder out in the kitchen, bedroom, or wherever your athlete decides to showcase his summer efforts.  We encourage parents to look at the calendars and the subsequent mileage totals, keeping in mind that miles should not increase by more than 10% from one week to the next.

Remember also that "soft miles" of sustained biking or swimming for 15 minutes will count toward a mile on the total.  These are great ways to cross train this summer, and are highly encouraged. Athletes should look to add to their totals DAILY with these opportunities.

The end goal is a well developed base for training when the cross country season begins on August 10th.  As always, if you have questions, please contact your coaches.
