SATURDAY PRACTICE IS A LEANDER CLUB PRACTICE

Saturday’s practice will be conducted as a Leander club practice, NOT Westdale.

Important from Mike!!!! Please read my note that I added to Tom’s post on running.  There will be a spot test tomorrow morning and I will ask a random person to answer my question as to what I posted.   If the question is not properly answered then everyone on the team will do super squats to 200.   Don’t be the person that disappoints your crew mates.

SATURDAY 7AM ROW

Given the wind forecast, as well as a coach shortage on Saturday, we’re going to keep Saturday morning’s practice to experienced rowers only. We think it will be rowable. If it isn’t, it will be called as per usual. Those not listed below will go for a run on their own time on Saturday.

MORNING RUNNING

Just a reminder that, when we have to run in the mornings due to high winds, you MUST run in packs of at least three. If one of your group tweaks something and is forced to walk, then at least three must walk. If you’re in a bigger group, then the rest can run on while two stay behind to walk with the person who tweaked something. Under no circumstances is anybody to walk/run alone. While nobody walked or ran alone this morning, one of our rowers was finishing up her stairs, then when she and Mike descended the stairs at the end, discovered the others had already left, necessitating a ride back to the club. NOT COOL! Let’s use that thing that’s perched on top of your shoulders that weighs about 7 pounds. It’s common sense: if you’re going down the stairs and you pass someone coming up, then that means they have yet to come down….so don’t leave! Or another common sense thought: if you run to the stairs in a group of four, and are about to start back with a group of three, then you need to wait for one person!!!

Mike’s Note:  Another aspect of our running is to bring running shoes with you every day.   Too  many athletes are showing up with boots, Crocs and sandals.  I’ve yet to see swim flippers but I would not be surprised to see them.  Come prepared to train.
