Distance Winter Training + a Good Read

Training in the off season is the best way to crush it in-season! Coach endorsed and athlete tested with proven results! You have a few months to go before track season starts. The process to focus on now is consistent training so that you can build fitness and strength before the season starts. It can be a grind at times. We all have those days when it’s cold and miserable and the last thing you want to do is go outside and run. Chances are, you will not regret embracing the suck, layering up, and getting your pals together to go for a run in the beautiful Issaquah Alps. Future you will be thankful. Also, very very important to remember to listen to your bodies and know when to back off. Sometimes less is more. Now is not the time to push it. Reach out to your coaches if you have questions. Support each other and have fun with this! 🙂

Came across this excerpt, “The Price of Winning at All Costs” (from Believe Training Journal by Lauren Fleshman & Roisin McGettigan), that excellently sums up what we always talk about: the importance of process over outcome.

Both “Off Season Training” and “Good Reads” can be found on the left side bar of the blog. If you’d like to contribute any “Good Reads,” feel free to send them my way – ellieclaws@gmail.com

Awards Night!

This is a reminder for the Awards Night at 7pm on Tuesday, November 5th (tomorrow!).
Join us in the Theater at 7pm followed by Munch and Mingle in the Commons.
Bring your uniform-washed and dried in a bag with your name on the bag. For those of you competing at the state meet, you can turn yours in next week.
The bookkeeper will have fines for those of you who do not turn in the uniform tomorrow night. Please take those to her on Friday and she will remove the fine once turned in.
We look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow night!

We will not be coaching Track and Field related curriculum, we are supervising strength training.  Students do  NOT need to be there for the full two hours, they can drop in after it starts and/or leave before it ends, depending on their availability. Please try to eat a healthy meal or snack (Apple or banana and peanut butter, or fruit smoothies are always a winner) before and/or after working out and bring a water bottle.
Please enter and exit the school via the front doors near the main office. Back doors near the football field and track will be locked.
