This is Week Two, Day 6 of the 2022 RunBlogRun Fall Cross Country Training & Racing program provided by RunBlogRun. We will provide cross-country training suggestions until late December 2022. Today is September 10, 2022. It is a race day and the sixth day of week two of our Fall Cross Country program.
Jake Wightman is our featured photo today. Jeff Benjamin found a picture of Jake running cross country, not one of his favorite pastimes, but he does it as he knows it helps him in his track racing!
On race days, we suggest a long warm-up, some strides and to work the hills, push the downhills, and develop a segmented kick, where you pick up with 400m to go, increase with 300m, increase with 200m, and fly over the last 100m. Make sure that you cool down well.
This is Saturday, September 10, 2022, warm-up, race, and cooldown.
