Post-Thanksgiving Monday Reminders

posted Nov 27, 2011, 6:38 PM by Michael Grether

Greetings Team,

As we head into a full week together, a couple of reminders: 
- Practice starts at 2:35 and for Sprinters may run a little later (4:45ish) Monday. This is because we will be teaching about Foam Rolling which will take more time then our normal warm up.

- Bring your Foam Rollers to practice. I have been told that those who ordered through the website will have theirs delivered Monday.I will pass them out at practice. 

- Usernames for the website: if you do not have one yet, please contact me quickly so that I may send it to you.

- Website: I apologize for not clarifying this before... But the expectation is for the athletes to be accessing the website at least 2x per week. I am big about communication and I am frequently putting new information up (not to mention the many documents and videos that are currently there).  I am not asking for people to spend hours of their time outside of practice reading and studying track or nutrition or physiology... But a few minutes a couple times a week Will make a big impact on our practice time and our season.

Looking forward to a great week of practice. Work to make one improvement every day.

Go Pride

NewsLetter: Week One

posted Nov 18, 2011, 4:40 AM by Michael Grether   [ updated Nov 18, 2011, 4:40 AM ]

It was a great first week of Winter Track! The attitude and work ethic has been of Championship level, which is what we need to make noise this year and to reach our team goals. A couple thoughts as we head into Week 2:
  • Wear WARM Clothes! It is starting to get chilly out. Wear sweatpants, spandex, or something similar. Reason: Keep the warmth in. The whole purpose of the warm up is to... well... warm up your muscles. Long pants/spandex keeps that warmth in and helps to avoid injury while running (especially you sprinters).
  • Foam Rollers: Those who have purchased through the site, they will be delivered and distributed the Monday after Thanksgiving. If you did not purchase a foam roller through the site, you can find them at Target in the Fitness Section or at Online Retailers.  We will start teaching the Foam Roll Routine once the Foam Rollers come in after Thanksgiving!
  • Living a Championship Lifestyle: To be a Champion on the track, you must Eat, Drink, and Sleep like a Champion. How you treat your body off of the track determines how you will perform on the track. Each of you should have received a Username and Password. Log In and go to the "Docs" section. Click "Championship Lifestyle," where you will find top end articles and a book on Teen Sport Nutrition and Health.
  • Thanksgiving is around the bend. I will be posting Workouts in the Google Docs Section.
That is all for today. Remember: 
You cannot spell Champion without Leesville.
You cannot be a Champion without Pride!

Winter Track Starts Monday!!

posted Nov 11, 2011, 1:57 PM by Michael Grether

Please show up to the track with the following:

** We cannot let people participate without these, by State law**
2) Completed Audio/Video Release form
3) Dressed appropriately for running

We will check everyone in as they come to the track (hopefully this will go quickly). We will then go through a warm up routine, then perform a series of physical tests to gauge people's speed and power.
