Off Season Opportunities:

Run the "Virtual Manchester Road Race" (Nov 19-25) - no large groups, must be on your own

Once you register ($20) and download the app...

Social Distancing Rules:

1. Stay home if you know you have been exposed to someone with the virus OR if you are not feeling well 

(particularly if you have a fever)

2. Always stay six feet away from non-family members

3. Wear a mask when not running/warming up/cooling down

4. No spitting, cover your cough/sneeze, minimize shouting

5. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after your workout

6. BYOH (bring your own hydration/water bottle)

POST XC SEASON CONDITIONING - Large (>4) Group Sessions suspended until further notice...

For those who are still training for races, or patiently waiting for Indoor Track season to commence, here is a weekly regiment which includes informal Drop In sessions for group workouts together:

Mondays - either Tempo or Hills, 2:45-3:45 pm @ NHS Field Hockey Fields

Tuesdays - Easy, on your own

Wednesdays - Intervals, 2:00-3:00 pm @ Young's Farm (note earlier start time)

Thursdays & Fridays - Easy, on your own

Saturdays - Long Run, on your own

Sundays - recovery

If you run 3 days/week, you should maintain your "base"

By running 4-5 days/week, you can retain your fitness (and continue to improve)

Note: 1-2 E day(s) each week can be substituted for an extra Rest day

Also, Sat and Sun can be swapped if necessary (due to schedule or weather)
