You are now in your third week of cross country training this summer. You should start feeling like you are getting the hang of it. If you are a college athlete, make sure you add thirty minute morning runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Wednesday: Warm up, 40-45 minutes easy running, three times 150 meters, cool down.
Keep the pace relaxed, at the start, and consider picking it up with ten-fifteen minutes to go.
On your strideouts, work on having some good turnover, but keep the stride outs at a good pace.
Cool down whether it is warm out or not. Remember to drink lots of water afterwards and get out of your wet clothes.
