We are starting our 5th week of practice and ramping up for our first meet at O' Melvany.  For those of you who are new to Storm, this park is really awesome and the race is as well.  We'll talk about that during practice including some strategy.  In the meantime, you are all looking AMAZING!  We just finished a great week of workouts and everyone is responding well to the additional mileage and intensity.   This week will have more of that.  After a mellow Labor Day evening run it will be back to business tonight at COC.  We are going to run some longer hill repeats to continue building strength for later in the season.  O' Melvany isn't an incredibly hilly course so at this time we continue to train right through that first meet.


I continue to gain excitement with the team and how awesome you kids are.  A quick example of that is starting the season with our loan youth girl, Mauri, and now to see we have 10 youth girls!  How cool is that!

All ages and abilities, keep working hard to improve.  Please let me know if you are experiencing sharp pains, this is critical! 


This week also brings, supposedly, the hottest temperatures so far this summer.  PLEASE hydrate throughout the day and drink an electrolyte before practice.  Also on interval nights, Tuesday and Thursday, make sure you bring an electrolyte with you to drink during practice.


As always, I welcome your questions and comments so please shoot me an email or pull me aside before or after practice if you have any.


One final comment, this Saturday shows a triathlon at Castaic lake.  Normally we've put on a kids triathlon but unfortunately the park cancelled it this year.  We will still have practice but it will be at West Creek park.  I'll remind everyone tonight and Thursday again.

Have a great day and we'll see you tonight!
