Pre-Season Track & Meet Schedule

Athletes & Parents,

With a great XC season under your belts, you should all look forward to keeping the "ball" rolling into track season!

The strength you gained from training for and racing three miles will now be coupled with more speed oriented training for the shorter and faster races of track season. Over the next few weeks, you'll be easing back into training so you don't completely lose the fitness you developed during XC season and to prepare your body for the true start of base training at the end of December and early January.

Please see the link below for the training schedule and note that much of your training during December will be independent, and it will be your responsibility to complete the prescribed workouts so you can attain the goals you set for yourself in track and beyond. Remember, you guys were one small step from making it to the California State XC Championship. Next fall, we will be shooting for a spot in the State meet, and the training and racing you'll do this winter and spring will all be investments in that long-term goal.

It is highly recommended that you group up and get the training done together. Coach Eisele and I ask that you text us with a brief report/Garmin readout of your workouts when we are not there. These early workouts might not seem important, but they are key to preparing your body for injury-free training in January and beyond.

Keep running,
Coach Horton
