We will continue our stride towards a championship season with practice Saturday, July 29, at BK 8-9:30.
Please remember to bring your water bottles (fill them at home) and dress for the weather. If you haven't been able to join us yet or are still undecided about cross country, it's not too late! Contact a coach and we can get you started, or just come to a workout.
Get out and exercise! Over the last few weeks, we have seen a steady improvement in everyone's conditioning and ability to run. We talked about team goals, too. All modified team members should be ready to run one to one and a half miles by August 14...without walking or stopping. Varsity runners should be able to run a 5K or 3.1 miles without walking or stopping. Doing so will ensure that our entry into regular season training will progress as planned and you'll be ready for our first meet in early September...That means you have to get out and run on your own!
Each runner has been given a training template outlining a running workout or a walk-run progression designed to reach your individual mileage goal. If you have questions, ask a coach. Remember, eating well, sleeping well, and hydrating well is as important as training well!
As mentioned earlier, sports physicals and forms are due to the school nurse no later than August 14. Physicals and forms must be up-to-date for any student to be eligible for participation. Here is the link to the BKHS website page containing the forms. If you have questions, please contact a coach as soon as possible.
