Have you ever wondered "why we are doing this run today?" Ask Coach! There are several factors that may decide how we go about training. Our training at Vista is first about consistency. Also, know that there are things that other runners do that is not as good for our group. Having teammates offers encouragement, commitment and drive that is far different from individual training. We focus on healthy and positive experiences that help you improve each year. Good coaching and training must consider your:
* Personal training history
* Competitive nature
* Ambition to excel as a student-athlete
We perform workouts for each aspect of running. We develop aerobic fitness as far as possible and appropriate based on how long you've been running. Year-round development of racing effort composes the rest of our training plan by exercising anaerobic threshold, bio-mechanics, nervous system, flexibility, core strength, hill running, other physiology and also mental exercises, all specific to racing 2-3 mile distances. Recovery, in the form of scheduling hard workout efforts, good amounts of sleep, hydration and good nutrition are equally important to training in the big picture.
