The Delta Hawks had a great showing at the SRA Meet on Friday! Almost all of our athletes participated, and everyone ran great. What was most remarkable was the way all of our runners fought through the adversity of the short start and tricky turn. Several Hawks fell during the race, but they got up, continued to compete, and finished with pride!
A special shout out to our medal winners SONIA BROWN (6th place in the 6th grade and under) and ADELEINE GLENN (9th place of 7th/8th grade). They both competed in races with hundreds of local kids and were able to garner top ten medals. But the truth is every Hawk had a great race, because every one of them started the race, competed, and finished strong. The coaches are so proud of you all!
This coming week we can do some harder work, as we don't have a meet next weekend. We will be at Lock Hills on Monday and the Boathouse on Thursday. This will likely be the last week at Lock Hills as the sun will be dipping low and we don't want to run on the unevenness of the sand in the dark. It's a good idea to invest in headlamps now, as our practices will soon be in the gloaming and eventually in the dark.
Here's this week's schedule:
Monday - Intervals at Lock Hills
(Meet at STONEGATE ELEMENTARY)
Tuesday - Rest & Stretch
Wednesday - On your own
Thursday - Marshall Hill Fartlek
(Meet at BRIDGEWAY LAKES BOATHOUSE)
Friday - Rest & Stretch
Saturday or Sunday - LONG Easy Run
REMEMBER: What you put into your training will dictate what you get out of your races. Train Hard, Win Easy!
