Third running Club Meeting

We survived the rain scare and had a productive running club this week. We have increased our warm up run to about 3/4 of a mile around the school. This week's focus was "Playing Fair" congrats to Gabrielle and Anderson for exhibiting this character trait the most according to our coaches. We worked in three stations this week. The stations were running games, obstacle course (plyometrics) and Go Noodle (aerobic exercise). We reminded the students the importance of bring their water bottles.  Next week we are focusing on encouragement. Happy Running!

Week 2 of Spring '15

We had a great second running club. We were working on "effort". Taylor and Jacob were the two students that stood out to the coaches for providing effort in their warm ups, races and during all events.  We completed a .65 mile run for a warm up run with stretching following the run. The students completed a 1/4 mile timed run to create groups. Based on the students feedback it sounds like they prefer the 1/2 mile timed run.  Next week we will be working on "playing fair" with some running games and races.
