At this time of the season, most American high school athletes have been racing outdoors for five to six weeks. In the midwest, we are just getting some warm weather, and in the south and west, they have juggled warm weather for some time.
Be careful with hydration and magnesium and potassium. I was told to have a couple tangerines and a banana each day. As you are racing a lot right now, make sure you spend time warming up and take a little more care in cooling down. Watch the junk food and caffeine.
Time to check your shoes now, and make sure that they are not worn down. I tried to juggle two pairs of training shoes in high school, but they were so expensive. Still, getting a brace, or surgery is much more, so watch the shoes.
And when you are told to do an easy day, please do it.
