*** 20 Minute Run Tuesdays***

Athletes & Parents

We have entered into another phase of our training program which adds another training component. Our usual “Twenty Minute Run Tuesdays” begin this week.

These are MANDATORY 20 minute INDEPENDENT runs done EVERY Tuesday going forward.

The runs do not have to be fast, they can be at “conversational pace” (comfortable pace where you can run and talk without breathing hard) but effort must be given. They can be performed around your neighborhood, at a park, on the track or on a treadmill.

If anyone is interested in doing their run in a group setting, we can meet 6 pm @ the Shadow Creek Sports Complex located at 13050 Shadow Creek Pkwy Pearland, TX 77584. The area is lit around the softball fields. There will be coaches there to administer the 20 minute runs.

The purpose of the run is to better develop the athlete’s Aerobic base, by keeping their heart rate up for 20 minutes straight. After the run the athlete(s) needs to complete 4 sets of 25 abs (of their choice) & pushups each (100 abs/100 pushups total).

This is our independent training day workout that keeps us from having to add another organized day of practice to our schedule. The importance of this workout can’t be emphasized enough. Thanks for your support.

 

Thank You

PTX
