has been a tough week. It was incredibly
hot for the Thursday hill and
Saturday tempo workouts. This is a great
opportunity to remind everyone about the
importance of bringing water to
practice. It's probably a good idea to
bring something small enough to carry in
case we're not working out close to
where we drop our gear.
We're officially entering the
pre-competition phase of our
training this week. That means some
intense interval workouts and more

week will look like.
Heritage Park @ 8AM
Due to the holiday, and the heat,
we'll be running our distance run in
the morning for this week. This will
be a conversational pace where we'll
continue to push the distance for
each group a little bit further.
This pace should be about a 6 out of
TUESDAY- Saugus High Track @
Tonight will be our first official
interval workout on the track. Be
prepared to run short intervals

THURSDAY- COC @ 6PM
Hills again! Why all the hills? Our
2nd and 3rd meets are all about the
hills. This is one of the best ways
to build endurance strength.
Central Park @ 8AM
Another tempo day.
There's a lot going on over the next
couple of weeks as we approach our
first meet. Continue to access the
calendar on the website for last
minute changes to the schedule.
In the meantime, take care of
yourself. That means drinking plenty
of water all day long, eating right
and getting plenty of rest. All of
this hard work will only pay off if
you give your body a chance to
