Long runs are one of the building blocks of cross country training over the summer. If you run 60-70 minutes a day, you will be quite fit over the summer. If you add hill training, some fartlek, and perhaps, tempo runs, you will be racing fit. Our goal is to make you racing fit.
Today is Sunday, July 9. It is a long run day. Find a place to run, like a park or soccer pitch and get in your fifty minutes today!
