This is a dangerous time
We've had a difficult period of time as of late and we're feeling the effects of an abbreviated training schedule, illnesses and a few injuries. These problems are not fully under our control but there is something we can do about it.
We can't control mid-term schedules but they are over now and we can squeeze the most of every practice we have left.
We can't control injuries but we can take our warm ups and stretching seriously in attempt to decrease them.
We can't control illnesses but we can eat and sleep and hydrate in effort to stay healthy.
Are you doing all you can?
Are you getting enough sleep? Are you eating properly? Are you hydrating well?
We just have to do it.
Boys 4x200: Good news - You guys had a good run and came up with a PR. Bad news - ER had a better run and knocked us out of second place...
Boys 4x400: You guys had a great time and scored a PR by ~7 seconds. We're in 10th place. We need to be under four minutes to remain competitive. Get it done.
There is no more time. Soon there will be no "next week" and "next meet" will be replaced with next season. We have one meet, only one, left before sectionals. That gives us one last opportunity to a "P" into an "A" or move up on the Leaderboard to earn a seed in sectionals.
If we don't turn this around now, if this downward slide continues this week, it spells disaster for what would otherwise be the best season in recent memory.
We will practice Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week and I expect everyone will be there. I expect everyone will be there on time, prepared to train. There may be an additional practice on Thursday as well. No excuses.
