Wednesday is always a recovery day. Enjoy the run, work on your strideouts and talk with your team mates. It sounds silly now, but some of your life long friends come from cross country and sports. My best friend, Bob Lucas and I met as juniors in high school. David Huges, another great friend, was first guy I met in sophomore year, who talked to me, after I moved from Saint Louis to San Jose.
Enjoy today, think about your races upcoming and try to focus on making one part of your race better each week!
