Hello East XC Athletes and parents,
Running Club starts tomorrow, Tuesday, November 29! This is a great opportunity for runners to come together as a team, continue to foster the great relationships that were made over the cross country season, and stay fit for track. Running Club will meet every Tuesday and Thursday after school at 3:00pm. Hoping to see everyone there!
Friday: 40 to 45 minute recovery run. Do this on your own or meet up with team members. No official practice, but you really need to get this recovery run done sometime on Friday.
Saturday: 60 to 65 minute run
Sunday: Rest day
Monday: Practice at 3:45pm
Due to the rising numbers of the COVID-19 Virus, Denver East has elected to not participate in Session 8, which was scheduled to begin next week and run through December 4th. As of now only Session 8 is cancelled and we will re-evaluate for Session 9 after the Thanksgiving Holiday, which is currently scheduled to begin December 7th, fingers crossed.
We will be posting workouts to be done on your own here on the website two or three times a week.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions. Have a wonderful Holiday break, and stay safe!
—Michael Tasker Head Track & Field Coach

Hey Runners!! Hopefully all of you are finding ways to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and get in some miles! Please send pictures of yourself and your running buddies (human or other, following safety guidelines) so we can share them! Please check the training plan on the website by clicking here xc summer training schedule 2020— and please keep a training log! It is even more important than ever that you are keeping track of what your training! Since we cannot be with you, we need to see logs so we know how to adjust your training. We will have more information soon on how to share that with us.
Please stay tuned for some upcoming google chats—I was having some technical difficulties, but think I have it figured out.
If you are going to be a senior and would like to be a captain, please send me a letter explaining why and what would make you a good leader for this team. I have received several already, and want to make sure I know who is interested. Please make sure I have your letter no later than June 1. You can send your letter to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy running thoughts until we talk soon!
