Senior Red Hell Week Update from Coach Michael

July 15th, 2018 | Posted by kigooswm in Coaches Corner


Before I get into what hell week will encompass, I would like to touch on this past weekend. These heats and finals were great, but as always, we can get better. We had best times and  a lot of top three finishes. I would like us to improve on how we prep for our finals. As days will get hotter and longer we need to stay on top of our well-being. Meaning warming down 150m or more, staying hydrated, putting clothes on, staying off our legs, and out of the sun as much as we can. In doing so will lead to more success. Let’s keep this great momentum going!

Now *Cough Cough* time to get into Hell Week(s).

            This Hell Week(s) will be hard. Really hard….Immensely hard. Put on your hard hats cause we are going to work! In order for us to reach the goals that we desire it’s going to take more than just effort though. It is bringing water bottles and runners to every practice. Coming in with a focused and positive attitude. It is going to require you to cheer on your other Mortys, I mean team mates when times get tough. Most importantly it is going to require grit and a tough mentality. I have no doubt that everyone in Sr. Red can do exceptional in the weeks to come if they do what I previously stated. Hell Weeks will be two weeks long with maybe a couple of days added on. 100% in and 100% out!

The Theme: Rick and Morty

Further expectations: Attending the Grouse Grind and the Triathlon. Further being able to swim a 50 free in practice with no breathing. 100% of the attendance is mandatory

Let’s go through some portals, gain some shmeckals, watch some interdimensional T.V, love Bird Person and avoid Jerry Smith.

Wubalubadubdub and that’s the wayyyy the news goes!
