The distance team had a very successful Track season (one of the best ever) with Tommy Williams and Will Firth leading the team with a 4:21 and 4:22 in the 1600 meters. Tommy was the State Champion in the 1600 and broke the 800 meter Brophy record with a time of 1:54.6. The 2010 cross country season should be outstanding with Tommy, Will and the return of lacrosse MVP Brock Ghelfi.
We are focused on winning the State Championship. To achieve this we must start logging in the miles. The varsity runners should run 300 miles plus and other runners 200 miles before the end of August. If you are not sure about the mileage, work up to 1 to 1 ½ hours of continuous running. I have been asked many times, how do I get faster? The answer is running your mileage faster. You must run hard in your workouts to achieve the outstanding results we had in track.
Runners will meet in front of Brophy on Monday, July 12 at 6:00 a.m. I will have workouts posted for the summer next week.
