Hill Repeats Anyone?
Last night I was double booked!! First I had back to school night for the High School I am coaching/ADing at, and then I had coffee with the BFF’s. I got home at 10:30pm, the only bad thing was I had to get up at 5am for practice with my Cross Country Team.
This mornings workout was all about HILLS!
The sun was just arriving when I arrived at the park.
I had my team do a 4 mile run of HILLS! I know that they hate them, but hills seriously make you a stronger runner. I wanted them to do some hill repeats but I could tell that the 2 miles of uphill running was killing them.
When we got to the top we enjoyed the most beautiful view. Thank goodness I had my iPhone on me, I got to capture this moment.
I have a bit of a problem and I need some advice from all of you. A couple of my kiddos are missing practice, they call me last minute to let me know with all kinds of excuses. What should I do? Do I “punish” them? Make them do laps on the track? I am just so nice that it is hard for me to be harsh, but I want them to take this team serious! Any ideas????
Today I get free lunch at work, wonder what it will be?
See you tonight!!!
