If you want to be a better runner, you need to run. You run fast, you run slow, you run long, you run uphills, you run down hills, you run on tracks. Wow, that sure is a lot of running.
Goals: We’ll begin running 6 days a week and the 7 days a week can begin for juniors, seniors. For college athletes, add a second run 3 times a week, of 35-40 minutes of easy running on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Monday: Warm up, 40-45 minutes easy running, then 3 x 150 meter strideouts, cool down.
