1st April Break Workout and the shuttle run challenge.   See the workout description from coach Cari in the video, with includes three repeats of the famous 30 foot shuttle run from the Presidential Fitness test, as we work on explosive starts.  Time each shuttle run and check to see if you can exceed the 50th or 85th percentile for your age.  The standards are on the home page.  If you surpass the 85th percentile, email coach Alex back at alex@longmeadowtrack.org and he will post the names of those who meet that mark.
