Keys to Success
Start at a reasonable pace. You should be able to hold a conversation while jogging. As you are able to sustain a good pace over longer periods of time, gradually increase your pace.
STRETCH – just because there is no one with you doesn’t mean you are relieved from your stretching duties – BEFORE AND AFTER
Foam Roll or use a Stick Roller after a run to stretch the muscles
Hydrate! Make sure you are drinking lots of water throughout the day
Run with people who are about the same ability
Have fun and try new routes. Mix it up at the park, on a trail, or in the neighborhood with friends.
Always make sure your family knows when and where you are running.
Running long distances…fast…takes commitment and preparation. Running over the summer is a great activity to pass the time, but also prepares you for a fantastic Cross Country Season. By running over the summer, you train your legs to run for extended periods of time and are ready to work on racing! Running over the summer will also prevent injuries and soreness during the season.
