Success is defined by some as achieving what you are capable of attaining. Many would call today a success, but I would not. I would clarify it as progress. Although we finished closer to East and only lost by a point, I don’t think we ran to our full potential as a team. I know we could have finished stronger and pushed their fifth runner back with our 6th and 7th guys. Coulda, woulda, shoulda… I hope this day is a source of motivation to be better because we are trying to be at our best in the next couple of weeks. We cannot be the best in history unless we are at our personal bests first.

In the next few weeks we will incorporate speed work to improve foot speed; this should help at the start and finish of races as well as the middle (and “ten quick” throughout). Improving foot speed and quickness will help to lower times and enable us to compete at the state level. Keep in mind the basic principle of training which is: stress, recovery, improve.
