Now that football season is over, the need to find interesting ways to stay in shape for the #offseason has begun. Speed is one of the most important aspects of the game. It is needed for route running, beating the defenders down the line, and keeping up with the opposing team.
The best way to improve speed is indoor track. Indoor track helps with acceleration; you start off quicker and are already ahead of the competition. Junior Mingo Peterson said, “running has definitely decreased my 40 yard dash time which really helps me in football.”
Some of the Wakefield football players are running indoor track to get better at speed and agility. Tim Stroble III, Mingo Peterson, Trent Howard and Nebiyu Aleman are all on the Varsity football team and indoor track team. Aleman said, “running track has really helped me increase my stamina and made me a better athlete all around.”
Even if you are not playing a sport and just looking for a way to stay in shape, running indoor track can really help. Howard said, “I have easily noticed the complete change in my body stamina and just overall readiness for any physical task because of the work that I have put in from running track.”
So, if you are not running indoor track this season and next year you find yourself looking for a way to stay in shape or to just exercise, running indoor track is a great way to do those things.
Go see what it is all about at the next Track Meet at TJ Middle School at 5:30pm on Friday, January 29th.
