Going the Extra Mile: Two-a-Days
A quick word on starting to run 2-a-days this week. The philosophy behind running doubles with our upperclassmen during the week is this, we want to keep you healthy. There is always a little bit of hesitation when we change something in your training, especially when it comes to running more miles. The coaches feel that doubles once or twice a week for the upperclassmen (juniors and seniors) is a more intelligent way to gradually raise your weekly mileage as you get older. It will help to add 5 to 10 miles a week to your training without having to add multiple long runs to the week. As always, Sundays will remain optional. If you feel like you need a complete day off, take it! If you feel like you want to go out and run a few extra miles on Sunday that's fine to.
For the underclassmen (Freshman and Sophomores) we would like you to focus on consistency right now. Running 6 times a week is plenty. If you feel like you need to be challenged more then run on Sunday. If you want to take Sundays completely off, but still don't feel like you are being challenged enough with what we do at practice, come talk to me. We will discuss a way to help you feel like you are working towards your full potential.
