Saucony RBR Fall Cross Country Training Program, Week Twelve, Day Three...from RunBlogRun

Cross Country season is here. A fine writer, Joe Henderson, once noted that cross country was the meeting place of the marathoner and the miler. In international races, that is true. Frank Shorter, the 1972 Olympic gold medalist at the Marathon and silver medalist in 1976, won four straight US cross country titles, as well as four Fukuoka Marathon titles (that, was, the de facto World Title in the 1960s and 1970s), less than two weeks after each title. 

How is your season going? Send me a note to [email protected]. Cross Country is about getting out and running, and most of the time, running is a lot of fun. Make sure you have some fun. And, oh yes, listen to your coaches. They do this because they love the sport.

Wednesday: Warm up, 45-50 minute run, then, 8 x 150 meter stride outs, at current 800m to 1,500 meter speed. Follow that up with a gentle mile or so cooldown. 

Remember, if you are a college runner, then, we suggest that you run a 35-40 minute run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, or, evenings.
