Parker Junior High Cross-Country
I was just going through some notes from during the season for a Friday practice the day before an invite. It was a pretty standard pre-race workout. 25 minutes of jogging and some strides. We spent time reminding kids of the purpose of the run (keeping their legs loose and their blood thick). We talked about the importance of staying calm, smiling, breathing, being confident, and the number of good teams that would be there tomorrow and not to be afraid of anyone.
