Today's Pratice is Cancelled!!!
Due to impending raining and cooler temperatures this evening, I am assigning your athlete’s physical homework for today. Please have your athlete do 50 or more (depending on age) sit-ups, 20 minutes of stretching, and 30 minutes jogging on the treadmill at 4 or 5 speed (less for ages 8 and under) If a treadmill is unavailable, please have them run in place for 30 minutes. Break it down to two 10 min increments with 3 mins rest between each set.

Please note if the images appear to small, click on them and they will magnify. After the 10-minute jogging session please have your athletes do 10 – 20 seconds of Static Stretching. Static Stretching is defined as sitting and holding the exercise position for 10-20 seconds (No Bouncing). Please have them do Static Stretching for exercises 1 -25 of the exercise chart (see above link).
Please note: Stretching today is most important. The weather is suppose to be fantastic for a good track workout tomorrow.
