If NXRSW was your last race of the season it is time for a much needed break from running. I will post more detailed information on next weeks blog/training document, but everyone should plan on taking at least 2 weeks off from running. A few things to consider:
- Take a minimum of 2 full weeks off from running. Let your body recuperate after a long season of training and racing.
- If you would like to take a 3rd week off, do it! Your track season will not suffer because you took 3 weeks off, and you will feel more refreshed when you return to training for the track season.
- Need more time than 3 weeks? Talk to me about it, but nobody should return to training until they are feeling refreshed, mentally ready, and motivated to do so.
- Workouts for December through winter break will be posted next week. During this time we will not meet as a team. Plan on running on your own, or call up a friend to get a run in together. No intense workouts during this time, just easy running.
For some of you taking time off is a HUGE challenge, but trust me when I say your body will thank you for it when you are running fast in the spring.

Vista Nation Ugly Christmas Sweater Party
We are going to do this again this year, but have not worked out the details yet. It will be sometime after NXN in December. We will make sure it does not interfere with studying for finals.
