Whenever a student sustains a long-term injury in class (2 weeks or more)
they are required to complete this injury assignment. All aspects of the
project need to be completed. An injured student misses a lot of run and
fitness activities that account for about 20% of their overall grade,
therefore, there has to be a reasonable way to make up those points. This
assignment will earn back all credit lost during your injury time.
Please complete and turn in before the end of the current quarter.
This entire project has to be typed and turned in one week before the end of
