The Training Corner

Q: Hi Pat! I am flat-out scheduled to the max right now. No, I am not whining, but I am concerned that my fitness is taking a dive. I’m a working wife and a mother of two, and new to this kids-sports-schedule thing.

Track & field update

Lone Peak High School and Ophir Middle School Track and Field is starting to pick up with a few meets every week for a while. The young team, composed of mostly freshmen and sophomores missed out on track last year due to COVID-19.

In spite of challenges

Lone Peak High School (LPHS) spring sports have proven challenging thus far, according to LPHS Athletic Director John Hannahs. Less than ideal weather did not help, nor did Spring Break running right down the middle of an incredibly active week in the season. Also, Covid-19 has continued to plague planning.

The Training Corner

Q: Hi Pat! I was just invited to join the local softball rec league with a bunch of my friends. I played hockey and baseball throughout high school, and club hockey and rec soccer in college. Since then, I’ve kept gym-fit, lifting, running, and stretching at least 3X/ week.

Q: Hi Pat! When does the pursuit of good health become an obsession? Ok, I get it. I need to take care of myself. But tracking every breath I take, every morsel I eat, every step I take, and every minute of quality zzzz’s is not for me.

Standouts

The Lone Peak High School basketball season started off when a number of question marks – mostly Covid-related. What was never a question in the coaches’ minds, though, was that their teams would work together, work hard and learn.

A whacking good time

It is a little like hockey, but without ice skates. Instead people wear shoes with decent tread. Some purchase the special broomball shoes and others creatively come up with ways to jury rig an old pair of boots – by conducting surgery to create better traction.
