Thursdays in our XC team usually consist of a workout- either on the track or on hill repeats. Thursday this week was dedicated to hill repeats for varsity on the newly found hill in the center of our city. Our goal for practice was to do 8-12 of these hill repeats near the skate park. The netting laid around the skate park’s premises for the intention of grass development added to the extra ‘umpf’ to get up the hill (no grass was harmed). I can’t forget the mud that pooled just before the finish at the top. It made the last few feet slippery and unstable to lift our knees for the final push to the top. The workout was tiring alluding to success!
Looking forward to fun Friday with freezy pops and games to kick off summer running!
