The 3 hard days a week are making you tougher, fitter and more focused! The work you did in cross country is giving you a strong base, and as we build up the stress levels, you will respond with some excellent racing. You need to sleep 8-10 hours a night, grab a nap occassionally, hydrate (coffee okay, tea okay, sodas, junk coffee is no good, except occassionally), eat well. I eat 85 vegan 15 percent fish, and did like this running 140 miles a week, I also ate everything and ran like that. Key is, listen to your body. Oh, and you must have fun! In all the years I trained and raced, I went to parties, movies, etc. Life is to be lived.
Why do I enjoy Katelyn Tuohy? She has been able to be at the top of the high school food chain without many of the issues that follow other promsing young woman athletes. Her support group must be amazing. I would like to meet them someday.
