Coed Middle School Cross Country, Coed Varsity Cross Country · Cross Country Update


Hello everyone!

I hope you and your families are all doing well.
Things are still a little uncertain as to when we can start meeting as a group for the upcoming season. I am still hopeful we can start the season on our official start date of August 3rd. I will keep everyone posted.
I wanted to touch base with everyone and do some housekeeping.  I know this is a lot, but please read through everything carefully.
Google Form: 
If you haven’t filled out the Google Form yet, please get that done soon: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Zrn050kbsolu3vNceEjwQkpxa7lImrDkFOEKqfJegUA/edit?ts=5ea8d1d7
At-Home Workouts:
I also want to make sure that you all have been running. I know the abrupt end to the track season was not what we were expecting, but getting out and doing some running, walking and exercising is going to help give you a sense of normalcy and prevent injuries when we can start practices.
With that being said, I have come up with “Word Workouts”. Starting on May 19th, I will send out a word and that is your workout for the day. I will do this on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. The graphic is attached below. You can do this in addition to your miles for the day or complete the word 3 times for cross training. If you have questions as to what each of these are, please let me know.

 

Cell Phone Numbers:
I believe I have everyone’s cell phone numbers, but please text me your name so I can ensure I have it. My number is 740-837-3341. I would love to be able to text the word each Tuesday and Thursday morning.  You will have all day to get them done and I am asking you to text me when you are done with them.
Running: 
Continue (or start) running. August 3rd will be here before we know it. I want you all to start the season with a good running base. I am asking high school runners to get 200 miles and junior high runners to get 120 miles OR 800 minutes of running before August 3rd.
Sharing is Caring:
We need to keep growing the team. Pass this along to all of your friends. I will be posting it on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/mpcrosscountry/ ) as well.
As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns and I also want to hear about the good happening in your lives as well.
I hope we can all see each other on August 3rd (or before).
Stay Safe and Healthy,
Coach Shoemaker
