Trinity Academy Cross Country

Hi. I'm Coach Tim, Trinity's head cross country coach. As we look toward our second season in fall 2018, I wanted to share with you some stuff we can all find useful as we prep over the summer and make plans in the fall. Let me know if you have any questions at babatim@gmail.com or 503.329.3052.

I can be reached by email at babatim@gmail.com or on my cell at 503.329.3052. I'm also on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat @babatim4 and Instagram. Find our team on Facebook and Athletic.net.

Training Schedule (pre-season opportunities)

I would like all of our athletes to be training during the summer. This should include a combination of running, building up your distance and speed, as well as other cross-training activities like biking, swimming, weights, etc. Start a journal and track date, activity type, time spent on activity, speed, distance, etc.

If you are not yet comfortable with running a 5K, follow the couch to 5k training program listed below under links.

There are a number of opportunities for us to get together and run, or compete in some local events:

Additionally, Coach Steve from Park Rose has invited our runners to join his team at Park Rose or Glendoveer Golf Course. They meet Mon, Wed, Fri at 3:45PM. For more details email Steve Sexton <labadorsprinter@yahoo.com> or let me know if you want to attend and I'll try to join you.
