Summer Running and Getting Ready for a Successful Cross Country Season

 Our goal is to be “running fit” by the first official day of the XC season. That means being a) injury-free, b) strong enough to absorb 5-day-a week workouts, and c) be able to run at least one mile without stopping.

1)  Start immediately and conservatively, within the limits of your current      fitness.

2)  Slowly add distance in an incremental way to your weekly total and long run.

3)  Be consistent, avoiding both layoffs of more than two days and runs that are too strenuous.

4)  Use off days for cross-training—biking, swimming, hiking, etc.

5)  Once a week take a full day’s rest. 


The Five Essentials:

1)   Good running shoes

2)   A water bottle

3)   A watch

4)   A small notebook to log your runs.

5)   A good attitude: patient positive persistent, self-starting and team-oriented.

Running Journal


Why Keep a Running Journal?

Everyone is different. It is important for you to know what training works best for you. Your journal will help you figure this out. As you look through your journal you will be able to see causes and effects. You will be able to determine how your fitness level has changed and what types of workouts are best for you. It even helps you to see that you are progressing towards your goals. Your journal will also help you determine the cause of some injuries (which will help keep you from making the same mistake).
