For the HS crowd: How to play catch up if you're behind in summer training.

For the HS crowd: How to play catch up if you're behind in summer training.

If, at the beginning of the summer, your goal was to be on varsity, keep that goal—but don’t expect instant gratification. When you’re setting goals, go after a big one (like making varsity), but set little ones along the way, too. If you didn’t start running until the end of July, your big goal might not happen right away. So instead of freaking out that you’re on the JV squad at the first race, make a few manageable goals to hit. Maybe you plan to be the third-best runner on JV. Once you’ve done that, set the goal of being the JV team’s No. 1 runner at the next race. If you can be tops on JV, hopefully you’ll be able to make the jump to varsity next. Having the small stepping stones along the way can build your confidence.
