Today is a pretty simple tune up workout. One of my favorites was a two to three mile where we would jog the turns and sprint the straights. It is a great workout for turnovers.

This is three weeks before the FootLocker Champs and two weeks before the NXN, and one week before the California State Meet. The season of cross country is coming to an end. Over the next few weeks, keep dry, and keep your pace under control. Do exactly what is asked during the end of the season workouts.

The big championships are upon us. The NCAAs, NXNs and FootLocker, plus California state meet. The focus of twenty-one weeks of training, the big races are now here. How will you run? No more workouts that really make a lot of sense, just fine tune and then, race hard. Good luck!
