RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 26 - JULY 2

Hopefully you all are getting your training and fitness going!  It's hot, so you have to be disciplined to run in the hours where there isn't as intense heat! Early morning or early evening!  Either way, you will develop focus, discipline and toughness, all things that are key to a successful season ... and LIFE!  Be faithful to the recommendations we put below:

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE WEEK

ROOKIES: Run 5 to 6 days this week, with each run 25-40 minutes (depending on where you're at in fitness)

VETERANS: Run 6 days this week, with each run 45-55 minutes. Pace should be one that is "conditioning" -- meaning, you're not just doing an easy jog. Jogging won't build fitness. You should NOT be running fast right now, but jogging shouldn't be your goal either. Find that good middle ground of effort, get a good run in each day. Be consistent.

On Wednesday, make your run a "fartlek" -- with five, thirty second surges followed by 90 seconds of normal paced running, spread through the middle of the run. 

Put in one or two days where you run twice.  The second run should be no more than an easy 30 minutes. 

ALL KIDS:  Work on your upper body.  After each run you do, do pushups after each run that equal 3 x the miles you just ran.  (If you ran 4 miles, then do 12 push ups; 6 miles = 18 pushups, etc.).  Also do crunches/curls that equal 5 x the miles of your run



SUMMER CAMP 2016 BANNER

SUMMER CAMP AND THE 2016 XC SEASON ARE APPROACHING!

Information for King Athletes           Information for incoming 9th graders        Summer Camp Calendar       RUSD Athletic Packet (Must be filled out and new doctor's physical every summer)

Summer camp will start July 25 and will go daily until August 24.

The cost of the summer camp is $95 which covers the cost of the coaching staff, food/drinks, team bbq,  and a team t-shirt.  The camp is not required but highly recommended.  It will also give athletes multiple opportunities to run the time trial course and qualify for the 2016 team.  

Vacation breaks are fine, just communicate with the coaching staff before departure.  There are no pro-rated prices for partial attendance.

This camp is for high schoolers only, who will attend King High in the fall.  It is not required to make the team. 

During the summer camp, there will be a select number of camp goers who will be invited to attend our Mammoth Lakes Camp in the High Sierras.  We take approximately 30 students.  This week is tentatively set for Sunday August 14 - Saturday August 20
