This is the eighth week of the HOKA ONE ONE Fall cross country mileage program. We finished 12 weeks of Summer training, plus two weeks of early summer training. Fall began eight weeks ago. Now, we have state meets, NXN, FootLocker, USATF Juniors, and NCAA.
Please show our training suggestions to your coach, and always listen to your coach. During the fall, we will provide you with 12 more weeks of suggestions to get you to racing fit and help you reach your goals. Fine tune our program, make it work for you. Our themes are this: You need to train your mortal engine. Physical and mental challenges are important. Manage training and life stress. Turn stress into fun. Remember to rest, and have recovery days. Know how to improve your racing skills. Most of all, have fun!
