Indoor meet discussion

Check out this message thread regarding indoor meets. An interesting read, to say the least.

I share the opinion of Coach Norton from Thompson Valley HS. (a perennial power from up North) that the indoor meets are good to break up winter training, but that they should not be the focus of any HS track athlete. Focus on getting in quality training, not peaking for indoor meets.

I especially like this line:

"We're of the mind that you can't run your best as a highschooler in both February AND May. As such, we'll take May over Feb!"

Very true, Coach, very true!
