Week #9 10/14-10/20

Thank you to all who came out to the Bobcat XC Festival at COCC on Saturday. Everyone represented well and had a good time racing on a tough course! I had a lot of compliments from parents and members of the other teams about our athletes and XC fans out on the course. Way to represent MVXC!

We are getting to that point of the season where we begin to lower our overall volume. Workouts get shorter and faster, our recovery runs get shorter and we start to sharpen things up for championship season. It is important to continue to stay on top of our recovery routines and take care of our bodies even when we may feel like training is getting easier and energy levels are up from where they have been. Let’s keep our focus and keep working hard all the way to the District Championships!

We have another busy week with Central Oregon Relays on Wednesday and Warner Pacific on Saturday.

Important details below!

Athletes will be released at 1:30 pm and will head to Pine Nursery for the Relays. Costumes are highly encouraged! Will there be a Parent team this year??? 😉

Week #8 10/7-10/13

We had a great showing at the Oxford Classic on Friday. We had some PRs on a slow course, along with great team performances across the board! Both the Girls and Boys JV Squads earned a 3rd place team Trophy to bring home some hardware! Both varsity teams placed well in their races, with the Girls placing 6th and the boys placing 8th in a very competitive team race. We are starting to see the hard work pay off, especially now that everyone is starting to steer clear of sickness. We still have some work to put in and some racing to do in the weeks ahead. Remember that everything we do is focused on being at our best on the day of the district meet. Let’s be sure to stay focused and take advantage of every practice to get better. Let’s keep rollin!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help out at Bigfoot! We had a good turnout and you all represented Mtn View XC well. Good job to those that ran the 10k. We had athletes and parents out there running (definitely had the best team representation!)

Check out details below on this week’s meet at COCC and other important info.
