Run SMART kids warming up before their weekly lap run. Yesterday they did nine schoolyard laps and we’re proud to say they all finished without stopping! The goal is to get up to 16 laps without stopping by the end of the program. It’s taking time but all the points we’ve been stressing about proper pace are really starting to sink in. We quietly recorded their times for the nine laps and next week they’ll do a prediction contest to see who can pace themselves closest to their predicted time.
Later in the session we did some drills to begin addressing proper running form. The kids ended the day with a beanbag relay, where they had to balance the beanbag on their heads while running. Good fun, good fun.
