I don't even know when it starts, all I know it's sometime in September after Labor Day... But ****... I can't wait for school to start. Cross Country starts August 15th and surely I will dominate. Furthermore, being a senior means I technically own the school now.

Well, I wanted to get that off my chest.

Word to your mother.

yeeesh, they start school in Ga in early august now.....wouldnt hve tolerated that back in teh 60s and 70s.

Be careful....if u date a sophomore you will be thrown in the slammer for 20 yrs, and some judge and prosecutor will get lots of votes for it. at least they do that here in GA. my whole senior class of 76 would have been in jail....

On what distances are you running?

LOL yeah, Enforcer, I know quiiiiite a few bodacious sophmores who I swear look nothing like 15 years old. It's kind of scary, but I don't turn 18 till next June, so any way you put it, it's all legal. Age of consent is 16 in MI, I think.

Now the question is: will she be 16 by the time I'm 18? LOL!

Haha, I have no idea what I want to do for college. I have it split between Aerospace Engineering and Psychology/Sociology with a sprinkle of Criminal Justice. Either I'd like to be an engineer, or work in law enforcement. I guess as time goes on it'll be easier to make a choice.

Atomic, our meets are all 5 Kilometers (3.1 miles).

Psh... Sprinting.. Hurdles... Laaaaaame.

Distance is where it's at. I mean... All sprinting requires of you is to unload a ton of energy in a few seconds. Distance is a thinking man's game. It's as psychological as it is physical.

Any distance runner can sprint. Maybe not as well as a sprinter, but he can do it. I don't know of many sprinters who run 4-8 miles a day continuously.


Thankfully, our neighboring schools don't have many Kenyans on their CC or Track teams. They don't have many Chinese ping pong players either. Or Russian tennis players for that matter.

I can't wait for school, either. I'll be a sophomore at Rice University . . I'm headed down to houston probably on the 16th or 17, classes on the 22 or 23 or something. College rules.

As a fellow cross country/track distance runner, I wish you good luck this coming season. Senior year, make the most of it! I will be entering my Senior year of cross country in college NCAA Div. III for Wisconsin Oshkosh. I also share your mad love of Pre, he is the man.

Its a speciality man. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif From what I know, its a difference in musclebuild as well. So if you want to be good at sprinting, you shouldnt train on long distances as your muscles wont be fit for the sprinting anymore and the other way around. Ofcourse you can still sprint when you run longer distances, but never at the level of the trained sprinters.

dont think, know the age. and besides, 16 is the age of consent in Ga. to, but it doesnt stop them from convicting guys for other absurdly titled crimes...like "exploitation" and contributing to delinquency etc. it may be different up north, but here in the Ga. Taliban ruled south, virtue is mandated, mainly because of the political capital.

remember, these judges make up the law as htey go along...the law is as they interpret it (did i spell that right?) not as it is written. BE Careful. ohter than that, have a great time.

Glad i didnt have to worry about such 30 yrs ago. The US was a Constitutional Republic back then. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Monty, 3 miles are the race distances. Our workout distances are another story.

And besides, no matter the distance, you push yourself to your limit and then some. I have ran 7-8 miles and been less tired than after running a hard 2 or 3 miles at the track at race pace.

And yes, Berndt, Pre is definitely the man! Good luck on your cross country season! Lemme know how you do!

Good luck with your senior year Starosta. My oldest son is going to start his soon. Your practice only starting on the 15th? It seems like my son never left school, football practice (6am 4 times a week) started soon after the school year ended. My son plays football and wrestles in the winter. He had a good year as a junior, 3 times honor roll and he made the state sectionals for wrestling (215 lb. weight class).

It's a legal thing. Coach isn't allowed to coach until the 15th of August. Some beaurocratic bull**** to keep schools from having advantages or something. That doesn't mean I haven't been working my @ss off all summer. 4 to 8 miles a day every day except when injured or on rest days (I try to make the two coincide). The team gets together informally once or twice a week to run together, you know, just to stay on top of things. Every serious runner on our team has the discipline to go out every day and run their mileage. Plus we have two camps this year. I don't believe there is an off-season for running.

You know what they say, though. Hard work pays off. There is no doubt about that in my mind.


Now if only I was so optimistic about my grades.

I ran cross country in Highschool myself and enjoyed it. When my soon complains about "running the reservoir" on 60 degree F, cool San Francisco mornings I laugh to myself to remember running 5 miles in 90 degree F, 90 percent humidity New Jersey Septembers.

The coaches are tough on their grades, in fact the whole school is. I give kudos to the coaches for having a mandatory study hall for the football team (the coaches run it). That gave a boast to the grades of all the students.

I guess from some of your other posts that you are of Polish heritage. I am partly myself. If you haven't seen it, watch the movie "Kanal" about the Warsaw general uprising in 1944, its great. The film won an award at Cannes in the 1950's. It was also banned from being shown during the time of the "Iron Curtain". A Czech friend of mine told me that he first watched it in a makeshift screnning in someone's basement in Praque. Yes, it is available on DVD.

exactly. sprinting involves fast twitch muscles while distance running involves primarily slow twitch muscles. that's the reason most sprinters are jacked and still run fast, while distance runners are very lean (apparently some ppl think im actually too thin...ahem)

I seriously cannot wait for XC as well luke. I dont even care about going back to school now because every day I get up during the season I think of going running after school. I'm looking forward to the hill and speed workouts as well so I can get back into real shape for hathaways. 56 miles a week right now is good only for so much...I feel like I've lost a lot of my speed since track. I'd love to break 20 mins for hathaways this year...but I dont know if that'll happen. lol I just realized I had a one on one conversation with someone on these forums in front of everyone hahaha oh well.
