Individual Process Goal Meetings
On Friday, we meet as a team to discuss the upcoming track and field season and to talk about what the process might look like to achieve our team and individual goals. Below are the documents form the meeting. If you would like to discuss your individual process goals for the spring season please fill out the "Process Meeting and Goals Form" and bring them to practice with you to give a coach. The coaches will then set up a time with you during A or B lunch (or an off period) to discuss your process goals.

Iron Checkup and Supplementation
If you have not done so since the end of the XC season please remember to get your ferritin levels checked again. The coaches recommendation is to have your ferritin levels checked at a minimum of twice a year: Once after the track season, and once after XC season.
Below is information about the importance of iron/ferritin for distance runners. A ferritin level of 30 is the minimum number acceptable for adequate performance as a distance runner. We also recommend that every athlete on the team be taking an iron supplement that works for them. Please come talk to the coaches if you have questions.
