    Wed March 23
    Temp: 32 and icy snow

    Practice indoors today plus team pictures

    400m
    30 minute bike ride, most were able to get about 10miles in

    100/200
    2x4 resisted sprints x 20m

    Boys did 1x60 time trial.

    Both boys and girls did baton exchanges at full speed with the assistant coach.

    D, mentioned in my other journal, ran a 7.17 from movement from a 3 point. Not bad for indoors and in flats.

    I had 4 other athletes between 7.50 and 7.65. There is a battle on for the 3 other 4x100 spots now! The kids are loving the challenge.

    We are scheduled for ameet Friday, however, the tracks are iced over and it doesn't look to melt in the next day. I anticipate a cancellation, which I embrace. If moved to next week, I would be happy.

    Next Thursday is the county indoor championship. I plan on running D in the 60m. I do not think he will have any trouble at it, but who knows who didn't run indoor.

    Indoors today..temp was 32 F

    100/200
    2 x30 time trial

    2 x 60 time trials

    Overall great results. I think ill have more girls talent than I thought. The boys team is loaded with short sprinters.

    D ran a 7.07 60 from 3 point. By far fastest training time this year.

    400m
    300+4 x 60
    250 + 3 x 60
    200+ 2 x 60
    150+ 1 x60

    Liked this workout alot. The first 60 was always rough. The second was alot faster.

    Mon march 28

    100/200

    Blocks 4x10 m

    2 x 300 @ 85-90%
    1 x 150

    Many guys had just lifted heavy in gym class. I wasn't hhappy about it. Coach would let kids lift after practice.

    400 m
    2 athletes felt poor. Did 9 x 300 tempo easy
    3 did 2x 300+150

    They did better than first time. Finishing rep is still a struggle.

    Update: May 10
    Temp: 65, slight wind.

    Today was the last dual meet. Going into this meet, we were co-champs, and would win division outright with victory. We won huge on the boys side. The girls team is young and ended up 2-3. There is upside in the next year, which I hope to post more about soon.

    Everyone ran well overall. I was very pleased. Relays ran SB's or close to them. Many people ran SB or PRs today. Many field events set or equaled PRs as well.

    I hope to re type some of the deleted posted from the server issue to fill in blanks for month of April.

    Next up is Saturday weekend invitational meet, then regionals 6 days after that.

    Hey ESTI,

    Congrats on getting so many kids into the state finals! They must be super-excited. I thought of you last week when we had brutal weather and our kids had to work indoors. It really sucks sometimes!

    How did your girls come along in the 100 and 200? Are you happy with the way your 400m runners are finishing races this year as compared to last?

    The girls did well overall. Their times didn't improve much in the 100&200. 400 times dropped a ton. The two who started using KKs template are so strong in finishing.

    I am debating on using it for all during outdoors next year. Spend the winter working up to 60 m then outdoors on finishing.

    The boys won the division meet! Alot if good performances. My 400 guy ran a 22.3 200...a school record. He later ran a 50.3. The first 200 was into stiff wind.

    Thursday was the county meet. Weather was awful. Low 50s and pouring rain. 400 guy ran anchor in 4 x 800 in 1:58 split. About four later ran 59.5 with another stiff wind. Came in at 200 in 25. I was at 200 mark instead of across track. Given he is usually 24-26 splits...I think he can go low 48 s. State best time is 47.7. Low 48 should be top 8 finish based on years past.

    State finals are in 1 week
