This meet is this Friday.  This meet is geared around team bonding and fast times for their first 3 mile race of the season.  It is a flat course run primarily on a bike trail along the Ventura State Beach.  From the 1/2 mile mark to the 2.5 mile mark, they will have the ocean directly to their left and right as they turn around right before the pier and make their way back to the finish line.  For spectators, it is a tough course as you will not see them for most of the race.  The top two girls squads in the state will compete here while three of the top ten boys' squads will compete against our top boys.  Each race will feature over 200 athletes.

We are leaving the school at 9:50 am - eat a large breakfast, pack a light lunch.  We are stopping for dinner - bring an extra $10.  We will be back to Corona around 9:00-9:30 pm.

2014 Racing Season Officially Begins

Saul Throws Down His "A" Race

Boys Humbled at Palos Verdes
Most of our varsity boys traveled down to the Pacific Ocean to take on two of the giants of California in regard to Cross Country.  Saugus is the defending Division II State Champs while Palos Verdes were the 3rd place at the Division III state meet.  In looking to claim our own piece of that pie of success, our boys will be ranked amongst some of the best in Division I going into the 2014 season.  With that background set, our boys were quickly reminded on why those other two are successful every year!  Despite graduating five of their top seven boys, Palos Verdes did not show any hospitality to our boys by soundly thumping us on their home course.  Meanwhile, Saugus, led by one of the best runners in all of California, did not give us any respect either by easily outscoring us after five runners!  Keep in mind that we did not have several of our top boys while another is still working his way back into shape.  But, even with our very best in there, Palos Verdes still had our number!  Senior Liam Brooks' kick at the end almost yielded him a 2nd place overall against this elite field of athletes.  But, the highlight of the day was the performance from junior Saul Gallardo.  After coming out of the gates as the top freshman in the league two years ago, Saul has endured multiple setbacks.  But, this was his VERY best performance to date and now catapults him back into our top seven going into next Friday's race!  A trio of juniors followed in Jason Spatter, Josh Madriaga and Moises Orduna finishing out our scoring.

Girls Look Solid while Young Ones Impress at Riverside "Friendly"
In a meet that was intended to be run on another, newer course, plans changed leading up to the meet.  Having to resort back to run on La Sierra's home course, it was anything like a 'resort' for our squad.  With dirt to spare, along with a wind that tried to blow away the 100 degree heat, our athletes did a GREAT job overcoming the conditions to get in their first race of the 2014 season.

More to come... 

5 pm NEXT Monday at Butterfield Park!  (Not at Corona High)

The Value of Chocolate Milk

A great must-read article about the value of using chocolate milk as a post-workout drink to get the very most from your training.

ALL ATHLETES: Bring a postworkout drink (Gatorade, Powerade, chocolate milk) and a sports nutrition bar to all workouts to ingest once we are done. 

Running Pacing Calculator

Plug in your goal time for three miles. It will indicate what level of fitness (VDOT) that will correlate to. Go to training and you will see what your target paces should be to realistically put yourself in position to go obtain that goal time (3 miles). Varsity boys should ALL be looking to be between VDOT 63-68. Varsity girls - we would love to have seven girls get to be near 48!!!
