The XC Season is now heading into the Championships Phase - C2C, Regionals, and Nationals coming up over the next 5 weeks. This is the time of year where balance is especially crucial - between relishing the opportunities and the urgency to perform at our best together; between physical and mental preparations; between work and recovery; and between internal and external influences. Bringing all of these (and more) into balance is the top priority of the Championships Phase.

The "tension" of this balance is what fuels our absolute best performances.

We are also in the final two weeks of "pre-season" for Track & Field. Official practices start on Monday, November 1 when it will be time to dive into our technical progressions and level-up the efficiencies of all of our event movements. At this time of the season, this is "add-on" work - the Power Development and Work Capacity progressions will continue to grow even as we add this next layer to our training.

Since the academic calendar requires that we step up our training load at the same time your coursework intensifies, balance - and more specifically Time Management - is your best ally. Be mindful of all of your responsibilities and step up your communication game. When we do this part of the year right, we set ourselves up for huge (even B.I.G Time!) seasons.

Sleep well. Eat & Hydrate well. Manage your studies well. Listen to and take care of your body.

Be B.I.G. Time!

Midterm grades are now posted. Regardless of your current status, make sure to spend time with your professors during Office Hours to map expectations for the second half of the semester. Your responsibilities outside of the classroom are escalating (see above) and our success as a team depends on your success individually in managing the next several weeks.

Seek and ask for help where you need it - we have plenty of resources to help you have a great finish to the semester. It is your responsibility to yourself and your teammates to take full advantage of those resources so we can all see how GREAT we can be!

Be CHAMPIONS in the classroom as well as in TFXC!

FUEL YOUR WORKOUT! PRIME YOUR RECOVERY!
