Run Extra After Practice

Running more than the rest of your teammates, and hopefully your competition, will achieve a couple things. One, you’ll be in better shape. You want to not only be in better shape than your competitors so that you can win the game, but you also want to be in better shape than your teammates so can make big plays down the stretch of a game. Two, If you’re in better shape the coach will also be more likely to call on you to shoot the game winner. You can’t be a leader when you’re out of breathe!

Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to run after practice. If you get made fun of, ignore the comments. Realize that you are improving better than everyone else. Running after practice is part of the first in the gym, last out of the gym mindset that will allow you to play better than your friends.
