Meet at Concordia with Oak Park and Morton

NewImage

Lineups for Tuesday’s meet at Concordia are posted.

Meet at Concordia (not Fenwick) at 3:30pm.  There is no bus.

It will be cold—High temperatures are expected in the mid 50s.  Dress appropriately.  Compression shirt, tights, extra sweat top, hats, and gloves are strongly recommended.  Although you think you won’t need them at 4:00, by 6:00 you’ll be glad you have them.  The wind at Concordia always makes the track area seem colder.

If you are a sprinter, you’ll need to warm up completely before each event and cool down after competing.  That means 10 minutes of light jogging and an abbreviated version of dynamic flexibility/form running.  Leave sweats on until the last possible moment.  Have a light sweat going when you show up for the start.  Get sweats back on and start jogging immediately after your event or jump/throw.

Bring fluids and drink frequently.  It’s very easy to dehydrate when it’s cold.  You probably won’t sense that you are thirsty, but drink anyway.  If you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated.

Shot, Discus, Pole Vault, High Jump, Triple Jump, Long Jump
