Back on October 31st I talked to you guys about how good do you want to be. It is easy to jump out there and talk a good game, but actually putting your real intentions in play is the ultimate sacrifice to achieving outstanding results.
In talk we all want to be the best we can be but in reality we let things get in our way and then we start making excuses why things aren’t going the way we hope.
If you want to be successful in any sport you have to focus on that sport. I believe Milton High School has a state champion somewhere in it’s population. Work does really pay off (like Donald Driver quoted). You all think I am crazy when I say this. I have never seen any one in this school district that has been willing to give everything they have to cross country. There has been attempts made but not enough to push someone into being the ultimate cross country runner. I believe, but it doesn’t matter if you don’t.
You need to start running NOW. No excuses, 5-6 days a week. If you want to excel in this sport you have to commit yourself right NOW. You need to start with 25 miles a week and then 30 miles next week and then 35 miles the week after that and 40 miles a week after that. I will back then and I will dedicate all my time to those who want to be really awesome runners. Don’t make excuses, don’t whine, don’t put less than 100% into your running. Every day should be the day you give everything to this sport. You need to run, forget about all the other garbage people are throwing at you. If you want to be great at Cross Country you have to start NOW!
“I AM READY TO COMMIT, THE QUESTION IS, ARE YOU” see ya april 1st s
Is anybody is running right now let me know?
So everybody is running, right? Should be logging those easy miles during january and february. If you r not get off your butt. Those promises you made to yourself last October start NOW.
woo hoo, love arizona
Here we in December. A few more days and then you should of decided whether you want to be one of those front runners next fall. 3-5 miles a day, 3 days a week is a great start. Every 2 weeks add another mile. Long slow distance doesn’t mean a 10 minute mile. Every week try to push your time done for each mile. If you want to run a 5 minute mile you should be doing a 6:30 pace. If you run a 7:30 LSD for 7-8 miles you should be able to run a 5k at a 6 minute pace. Remember: 1:30 minute slower than race pace is your goal for 7-8 miles.
THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WHO REALLY WANT TO BECOME GREAT RUNNERS IN THE FALL. YOU GUYS ARE GOOD AS EVERYBODY ELSE IF YOU WANT TO BE.
“BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF YOU”
Have a great Holiday season!!!!!!!! S

Most of you should be proud of your accomplishments this year. We jumped a few hurdles, climbed up one rung on that Badger South ladder and some of you ran your best race at sectionals the way you were trained to do. If you feel bad, you get 10 minutes to get over your pitty party. What we do here is not life changing. I would like all of you to work on one thing for me during the off season (besides run). We need to work on better team unity. If we do that we can achieve so much more as a team. It is not about one individual or you yourself, it is about all of us. It is more fun to be part of this team than to buck everything we are trying to do as a team. You can still be the best you can be and then hopefully that will encourage all of us to be better.
“THE TEAM IS ALWAYS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU”
S See you in 151 days.
If you are going to the state meet on saturday you cannot park close to the event. You need to go to Lincoln High School and park there. They will then shuttle you to the event for free. Once you get to the event you have to pay $6 to get in. Lauren will run at 12noon on Saturday. It will take over 2 hours to get to Wisc Rapids. So plan wisely. It takes 10 minutes to get to the event from the high school. Linda and I will be driving up Saturday morning and leaving about 7 so we can meet Lauren and Mike at the high school about 10am.
I am hoping to do our adopt-a-highway on Sunday 10/29 at noon. So far Noah Brown has said he can come. I hope we get about 10 or more so it only takes an hour. Please let me know if you can come.
Where: Milton HS Cafeteria
When: October 29th Sunday
Time: 6:00 PM
Every family should bring a dish to pass and a desert OR salad. Drinks and eating ware will be provided.
Awards given out after we eat. Please attend, this is for you.
