The Indoor Track season has gotten off to a great start. Training takes place Monday through Thursday in order to get everyone in shape and prepared for the first meet. Due to construction there is limited space, sometimes leaving the team in a very small section of the cafeteria to practice.
On Thursday November 29th, the team cross-trained in the swimming pool for the very first time. It was new to everyone and it was a great experience. Running in water is a lot harder than it may seem.
“The pool workout was to build athletes’ endurance, and also to prevent injuries,” says Indoor Track Coach Bryan Ragland. “We are doing anything we can to break up everyday running.”
“The workout was a lot tougher in water because of the current pulling you back. But I enjoyed it and look forward to doing it again,” say East High Senior Deya Flores.
The team is looking forward to doing it again especially with the season being 5 months long. With only 2 weeks left until the first meet, we are working harder than before. Having many new people this year that are good in multiple areas will help the team out a lot this year. Come support the team at Brockport on December 22, for the first meet of the season.
