2017 Season – Week #4

Hey Team,

Please begin trying to make team practices a priority.  We are only a few weeks from Cultus Camp and our first race is only a month and a half away.  Building a base now is critical to injury prevention and overall success this season.  Please also work on inviting friends to attend practices now if they are interested in trying out cross country and encourage your teammates that haven’t been out this season to be here too!

Here is our practice schedule for the week:

Monday – Drake Park @ 8:30. 1st Street Rapids Trail.  20-35 minutes out/back

Tuesday – MV @ 5:30.  Shepard Loop & Strength

Wednesday – RiverBend Park @ 8:30. Haul Road Trail. 20-35 minutes out/back

Thursday – MV @ 5:30. Shepard Loop & Strength

Friday – Drake @ 8:30.  Run to RiverBend to play frisbee/games.  Freshmen Fun Friday starts after practice (See below for more info).

Saturday – Run on Own 30-60 minutes

Sunday – Rest Day

Freshman Fun Friday

Our team captains have put together a special event to welcome our incoming Freshman. This will take place Friday, July 21st.  We will carpool to Elk Lake after practice (around 10-10:30am) and anticipate returning to Mountain View around 5pm.  Please bring a sack lunch, swimsuit, sunscreen, water, and any tubes, floaties, etc. for the water. We will likely need a few parent drivers so please let us know if you are available.  This event is open to freshmen only.  Please RSVP if you can attend!

2017 Season – Week #1

Thank you so much to all of our wonderful volunteers that worked the triathlon transition and water and aid stations Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Pacific Crest.  Because of your help we raised several thousand dollars for our program that will be used for activities and freebies this season!

The 2017 Season is here and our first day of practice is Monday morning at 8:30 am in Drake Park.  Summer practices are a great way to start getting in shape and a good trial period if you’re not sure you want to do cross country yet.  Attending summer practices will also improve your race performance during the regular season.  We hope to see many of you out there!  Here is our full practice schedule this week:

Monday – Meet at Drake Park at 8:30 am (Meet by bike racks near footbridge).  Short Easy Run & Game (2.6 miles)
Tuesday – Meet at Mountain View Track at 5:30 pm.  Easy Run & Strength Training (2-3 miles)
Wednesday – Meet at RiverBend Park at 8:30 am (Meet by bathrooms).  Easy Run (3-5 miles)
Thursday – Meet at Mountain View Track at 5:30 pm.  Easy Run & Strength Training (2-3 miles)
