Today, I watched the NIke Nationals. There were some fantastic performances. On the girls side, Wayzata XC won over Manlius, who had won eight straight times. The Manlius team was devastated. Yet, they showed extreme class and shook the hands of the winners and congratulated them.

It's the end of the season. It's down to the big races now. It's all or none of the marbles. So, what are you going to do? How much can you hurt over the last 300 meters? Can you catch the fifth guy from the next club? It is you and him, or you and her. It is down to the big stuff now.

Run your best, go make history...

The big races are over for most, but for some, the FootLocker regional for west and NXN are this weekend. This is one of my favorite workouts, just a nice relaxed three miler changing some gears. The rest of the week is relaxed and light.

In my day, we were told to train in heavy training shoes, to build up our feet and leg strength. Then, when you got into a pair of racing flats, you thought that you were flying. In the 1970s, there was a 4.5 ounce racing shoe from Reebok and one fro EB, the company that made the first Lydiard shoes (Eugene Bruting, I believe).

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.
