The first thought on my mind is Thing2 is due any day now. If you get a text in the middle of the night with a change of plans, then I am pre-occupied. :)
I thought we had a really good meet yesterday, even with some kids having a hard interval workout on Friday. Complete results can be found on co.milesplit.com, but I counted at least forty new 2012 season bests on our team. That is excellent. As Coach Monfre always says, you can't do any better than your best! Great job Wolverines!
CastleView Invite meet pictures are already up, check out the fantastic shots on www.flashndashphotography.com See if you can find the one of Ol' Coach Maroney demonstrating perfect vaulting technique.
This week is Spring Break, and the practice schedule is as follows:
Sprinters: Monday through Friday at 3:00 pm
Pole Vaulters & Jumpers: Tuesday & Thursday at 3:00 pm (work with Sprinters on Monday, Wednesday and Friday)
Hurdlers: Monday & Tuesday at 3:00 pm (work with Sprinters on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)
Throwers: Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11:30 am
Distancers: Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 am (On your own workouts on Tuesday & Thursday)
We do not have a meet this week, so follow your individual coaches instructions on what do to on Saturday and Sunday. And, if you are confused as to what practice you need to attend, communicate with your coach!
With the first third of the season behind us, now is the time coaches start moving some athletes around to focus them on events where we can score the most points as a team. As I have mentioned before, there is no point in having six great milers, but no good 300 hurdlers. (That is not the case for us, it is just an example!) I think we are really coming together as a team, both men and women, but I still think we can improve and to do that we need the best athletes to be competing as much as possible.
Enjoy your Sunday off, but make sure to be active somehow. Monday's are a crucial day of training for us!
