BEFORE GOING TO ANY OF OUR CAPTAINS' RUNS, MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON THE CAPTAINS' TEXT MESSAGE DISTRIBUTION LIST. THEIR NUMBERS ARE IN THE SEASON PACKET, LINKED BELOW. ATTENDANCE AT THE RUNS HAS BEEN POOR SO THE CAPTAINS ARE CHANGING IT UP.

Your summer training should be centered around volume. This means miles. Barring significant injury or illness, which substantially disrupts your training and about which I must be informed immediately, you should all be running six days per week with the goal to reach at least 300 miles before practice begins in August.
Weekly tempo runs, not at the expense of overall volume, should begin in July. No pure speed work or racing of any kind. Hills should be incorporated into your regular runs and low intensity, low volume hill repeats are ok occasionally. Striders, as part of daily drills, are also ok. Stretching, both static and dynamic, and core work should be part of your routine as well.
