The idea of working in hills during the cross country season is nothing new. The idea of building your summer mileage and strength is not a new one either.

This is the secret sauce, so to speak of our plan. The idea is to build mileage, build hill strength and add on some tempo work to get you race ready for cross country. Within 3-4 races, you are racing fit.
