2019 HOKA ONE ONE Fall Cross Country, Week 14, Training & Racing, Day 5, A day in the park...


The humidty in Doha is what is intense. The heat is almost as bad. But, thankfully, most of events are under dark skies. Athletes in the jumps and sprints tend to enjoy the heat. Distance athletes deal with it, but do not prefer it. This time of the season, end of year for elite athletes, they do their easy days really easy. So, if an elite athlete does it easy, you can too!
