Thanksgiving Week Practice

BTC Athletes and Parents,

We will be holding normal Tuesday practice at Nike and Mt Tabor today.  Sherwood will hold practice from 5:00-6:00 at Snyder Park.  There will be no practice at any location on Thursday due to the Thanksgiving Holiday.  For Thursday, we encourage kids to take part in a local Turkey Trot/Give-n-Gobble.  If you are unable to participate in one of those an alternative workout suggestion is:

Suggested Thursday Workout

Fartlek Workout -   Make sure to do warm-up run and drills/strides.  The point of this workout is to run continuously, alternating between tempo pace (15-20 seconds per mile slower than race pace) and easy jogging.  Once the fartlek is started, you will run continuous until the cool down.
