How to prepare for the cross country:

How to prepare for the cross country:

If you are looking for ways to prepare yourself for cross country, then you have
come to the right place. Cross country is a very hard event to complete as all your
doing is running. I am really confident that this will help you as there are so much
things you could do to prepare yourself.

Mentally prepare yourself:
Mentally preparing yourself is all about thinking positive and stop thinking negative,
for example. “Think strong”, “Give it your all” & “Focus on your running”. Mentally
preparing yourself is all about believing and thinking positive throughout the whole race.
Self talk is what most people do to get over there nerves and only focuses on the race,
self talk is mainly about the conversations you would have with yourself. Doing this
and it may help you a lot during your cross country performance.

What you should be eating:
Eating food with loads of sugar and fat in it can probably affect you when your running
as you can easily get stitches as well as tummy aches. The type of food/snacks you
should be eating are things like veggies, plenty of fruit and lots of meat. These types
of food are very healthy as it gives you lots of protein. I really recommend eating lots
of fruit, veggies and meat as it can help you heaps throughout your performance.

How much sleep you should be getting:
The amount of sleep everyone should be getting before the Cross Country event is
9-11 hours. Getting this much sleep will really help you to be more awaken then
having to be tired for the competition. If you didn’t know sleeping can help you as your
body is whats helping to support your brain/mind to be a more healthy and physical
health person for the next day. Sleeping also helps your development and growth.

Overall, preparing for events like this can be quite a challenge. When it comes to
preparing for events like this means giving it your all, concentrating on the race and
have lots of fun. Getting to this part of the year event can require lots of training and
try your absolute very best, this is what most people focuses on when it comes to this
particular event. Make sure you keep trying your best and remember to never give
up but to prepare yourself very well. I really recommend you to mentally prepare
yourself, eat/drink the right type of food/drinks and to get the right amount of sleep
each night. Enjoy your Cross country race and do your very best.

Robot Co-ordinate

In this post there are 2 robots heading somewhere to meet up. The R stands for Red and B stands for blue. As you can see in this co-ordinate the robots have a certain place to rotate around the square, as you can see right there. If you can probably already tell the robots have recently met up twice. This is my way of figuring out co-ordinates but without Mrs stone's help I wouldn't have figured out the 1'st one which was the, R3 & B3. As she helped me it really pushed me to figure out another one which turned out to be the R5 & B5 unfortunately after doing that one I couldn't find another way. By far I think doing square co-ordinates has gotten me really use to it and I am really looking forward to our next session of this!

Treasure Island Co-ordinates

What are the co-ordinates of these objects?

Write down what you can see at the co-ordinates given below:
  1. (7,5) = Elephant
  2. (9,5) = Island
  3. (5,3) = Gate
  4. (2,3) = Hill / Mountain
  5. (7,1) = Tree
  6. (3,3) = Tower
  7. (4,2) = Brick Wall
  8. (1,1) = Octopus
The words can be used in a special way to find the coordinates of the buried treasure.
Can you work out where it is? (X,Y). (EIGHT,TWO) or (x8,y2). Lighthouse

Extension: Could you give directions to the octopus so it can get to the elephant?
Go Up to (1,5) Across to (7,5) = Elephant (EIGHT,TWO) (x8,y2)
