Course Description:

Girls Running Club (Grades 3-5)

Burroughs SEA Teacher and Active Solutions Lead Instructor Logan Caldwell, will run from Burroughs to: Lake Harriet, Minnehaha Creek, Minneapolis Parks pathways, grassy hills, beach sand and just run, run, run. We will focus on getting to know you and team building as we train for a “2-3 mile run”. Running Activities: Pacing, hills, sprints and fieldwork. Topics: Running technique, healthy habits, celebrating self. Each session begins with a getting-on-board and a warm-up activity that brings the girls' focus onto the day's topic. The warm-up is followed by a stretching routine that allows for a topic-related question and answer time. Then, during the workout period (30 to 40 minutes), the girls participate in a variety of running activities that utilize a game or a team goal. Each session closes with positive words from the girls' leader regarding individual and group behaviors. Due to COVID restrictions parents are responsible to drop off and pick up their student and gear at Lynnhurst Park between ball fields 2 and 3.  Dress for the weather: jacket, gloves or mittens, hat, shorts, t-shirts, gym shoes, sweat pants/sweat shirts. Please bring a snack to eat before each session and a water bottle.
