The hill workouts that you have done this past summer are helping you now, as your race during cross country season. However, one can not race hard and train hard day in, day out.

Way back in the 70s, Joe Henderson, the poet laureate of the first running boom, wrote that "Cross country is the meeting place of the miler and the marathoner."

The days where you run 45-50 minutes and do eight strideouts are recovery days. This gives you the time to recover from the recent races or hard workouts.

The races are getting tougher and tougher. More is at stake as you get later into the season. Your weekly training has been building for this time of the season. Make sure that you eat well, get proper sleep and take it easy on easy days.
The racing season is upon you! Make it count!

Mondays are always pretty relaxed running days. Remember to see how you are feeling after the race on Saturday and long run on Sunday.

Long runs are a key part of the long distance and middle distance runner's training program. Long runs are more fun when run with friends. If you are sore from yesterday, keep it easy and shorten the run if need be.
The key is consistency, so remember to build and focus. And have fun!

Keep it relaxed today, especially if you have a race tomorrow. Keep it light today. And see what you can do in the race tomorrow.

This is the hill workout day, or, if you need speed work, try the 800 meter runs or 400 meter runs!

Your body takes time to recover from hard races and workouts. When you have a hard week, sometimes, the races in the next week find you worn out. You will come back. Just be patient.

The tempo run is even more important during your racing period. It gives you a great chance to build up your endurance and abilty to handle the middle parts of races, where most runners slow down.

Fartlek is a great way of training for many around the world. The term is from Swedish, and it means "speed play". I first started using it in high school, and it remained one of my favorite training methods. Consider adding it to your training arsenal.

Sunday is our traditional day for long runs. But, as with all training, commons sense must apply. If you are sore from your race on Saturday, slow down the Sunday pace first, and then, get on soft ground and thirdly, shorten the run.
