New girl's DMR record... click here for details.

See my blog for more specific workouts.

Well... Track is finally over and you're all chomping at the bit to get into cross country training full-swing. Yes? No? Not so fast... if you just finished track you need a few weeks to decompress. You can do nothing, bike, swim, jog.. but no hard running. I know that not all of you finished the season at the same time.... Erik went to the state meet on June 6th, Aeron's last meet was May 31 at the CIF finals, and most everyone else finished up on May 24 at the CIF prelims if not earlier. If you've had 3 or more weeks off you should be simply getting in some easy distance at this point-in-time 30-40 minutes with a longer run once a week that's about 20% of your total weekly mileage. Starting the week of June 22 we'll start meeting once or twice a week for more specific workouts. If I don't have you on my email/text contact list fill out the form below.

New Team Members
If you plan to be a viable runner on the cross country team I suggest that you don't wait until the first offical day of practice on August 21 to start your training. If you can only bearly manage the minimum standards above you're going to be at the back of the pack during many of our training run.
