Mondays are the start of our training weeks. After a race on Saturday, and a long run on Sundays, Monday is always a pretty relaxed day. Find a friend, get the run in and then, perhaps, jump on the track and do your 150 meter stride outs. Speed is key in all parts of your season. Stride outs just remind you to run fast at the end of races. It loosens you up a bit and adds some variety to your program.

Oh, and one more point. It is important for you to communicate with your coach. Tell him or her when you feel well, don't and when, you are not sure what you are getting out of a series of workouts. It helps them understand what you need and how you are progressing. 
Saucony Fall Cross Country Training Program, Week 12, Day One

If you are a college cross country runner, consider a morning run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays of 35-40 minutes.

Monday: Warm up, 45-50 minute run, then, 8 x 150 meter strideouts, at current 800m-1,500m speed, then, gentle cooldown.
