Off season Training Schedule

I hope everyone is doing well, staying safe, and running. I am really excited to kick off another cross country season. There are some changes to the 2020 summer program compared to previous summers. Please email me at mohearn@hlsd.org. The following information is our summer cross country plan. It will be done in four phases.
 
Phase 1- Online training using Team App and Strava beginning Monday, June 15.
Team App will be used to post workouts. Strava is used by runners, cyclists, and swimmers to track workouts. Runners can link their smartwatch to Strava so workouts are automatically uploaded or runners can manually upload a picture. The coaches will follow the athletes on Strava and vice versa. There will be required posts by the runners so coaches can monitor their progress. Coaches and runners will NOT meet during this phase. However, there will be workouts posted by coaches and workout posts by runners. Please make sure to have the Team App for workouts and Strava to post these workouts. Follow Matt O’Hearn on Strava and I will follow you back.
 
Phase 2- Meet at Three Creeks beginning Tuesday, July 21.
Coaches and athletes will meet at Three Creeks Bixby Rd. from 8-9:30am. We will meet every Tuesday and Thursday at the same time and place until the season begins on August 1.
 
Phase 3- Practice begins August 1 at HTHS.
 
Phase 4- Meets begin.

About HT Cross Country

Cross Country is a fall sport that does not cut interested participants. The sport encourages participation to anyone in the high school and middle school from all fitness levels.
  
The goal of the Ranger XC program is to encourage physical fitness and health through the benefits of long distance training.  The competitive nature of the sport will give a sense of accomplishment to anyone involved by allowing the athletes to set realistic personal and team goals that can be accomplished by working hard together.  Our team prides itself on our FAMILY atmosphere. 
 
**WEAR ATHLETIC APPAREL AND RUNNING SHOES. BRING WATER!!!

***Social Media is especially important when conditioning or practice is canceled due to inclement weather.
 
DYNAMIC WARM-UP: These exercises should be completed before and after each workout. 
 
 

How can I get in shape to run?
If you are new to distance running, do not worry! There are many things you can do to prepare yourself before the season starts. 
1. Play a winter or spring sport. (Indoor and Outdoor Track, Basketball, and Wrestling benefit aerobic fitness the best)
2. Stay Active - Running for as little as 30 minutes a day will greatly improve your aerobic fitness. Try to run 10-15 minutes without stopping and slowly add more time to your runs each week.
3.  Cross Train-  Swimming, aqua jogging and biking are great ways to stay in shape and to get extra workouts in with little stress on your body.
4. Champions are made during the off season. Put in the work now to succeed in the future!
