Parents and Athletes:


Week 3 begins... 

It's been a great 2 weeks so far!  Last week we got out on the trails for the first time at Heritage, and some of you got to experience your first interval workout.  Don't forget about the triathlon on Saturday.  We had 28 kids out there, most of whom were Storm athletes, and they all had a great time.  Thanks to those of you who participated, and way to try something new!


This week we will continue building strength as we still have 4 weeks until the first race.  Unfortunately, Monday night is back to school night for some of us so I will be missing the practice.  That practice will again be a longer, slower workout, so come to practice hydrated and ready for the hot weather.  Any parents planning to bring a bike to ride at practice, maybe bring a backpack so you can carry some waters if necessary.  Tuesday, we'll work again on intervals.  Tuesdays will prove to be the most essential workout of the week for increasing your speed so be sure not to miss it.  Thursday is the last COC race series race so if you aren't planning on making it make sure you go out for a run on your own.  Finally, how could I forget about the most enjoyable part of practice, Core, maybe we'll start to see some 2-packs out there this week! 


Closing out the week we'll have our first beach day.  Saturday's practice this week is going to be at 10:30 at Carpinteria State Beach.  The details are as follows:  we'll meet at the life guard station at the end of Linden Ave, near the volleyball courts.  Exit 86, go left to Carpinteria Ave, go right to Linden, then left to the end of the road.  Parking: there is free parking at the end of Linden or side streets by the houses, or you can pay $8 to park in the state beach parking [Go left on Palm Ave from Carpinteria Ave which is before Linden follow signs to the campground].  The plan will be to start practice at 10:30 which gives you time to sleep in a little.  It takes about an hour to get there.  By the time practice is over, it should be prime beach weather.  Bring your umbrella's, beach balls, and boogie boards.  And food for your family. 


I'm looking forward to more fun this week. 


See you out there,

Coach Jeremy
