With most state meets now done, the NCAA's over, the season is coming down to the FootLocker Regionals, NXN Regionals, NXN and FootLocker Champs and the USA Club Champs.

We will focus on tapering the next three weeks.

Keys in tapering: Sleep eight to ten hours a night. Get in a nap each afternoon if you can. Hydrate (stay away from soft drinks). Stretch well before and after workouts. Always change out of wet clothes immediately.

Monday, November 23, 2015, Week 24, Day One: Warm up, 1-2 miles, easy 3-5 miles, 6 x 150 meter stride outs, 1-2 mile cooldown.
