2017 HOKA ONE ONE Postal Nationals Summer Cross Country Training Program, Week 9, Day 6, three miles of strideouts


The three miles of straights and jogs is a good workout. I recall seeing a similar workout on John Walker's workout schedule (1976 gold medalist at 1,500 meters, man who ran 100 plus sub 4 minute miles and first man under 3:50 for the mile). Like fartlek, this can be an easy workout, or an incredibly useful workout! Changing speeds is what cross country is all about, and the ability to change speeds needs to be developed.
