2022 RunBogRun Cross Country Recovery Program, Week 1 of 3, day 4

2022 RunBlogRun Summer Cross Country Mileage Program, Week Six, Day Five

Cross country ended for many of you over the last few weeks.

Many of you have begun training for the indoor season.

We suggest a three-week limited training or recovery period prior to beginning the long drive for spring track and field.

Elite athletes have to plan for which events that they will focus on, and that is what your coaches do for you.

We will keep the next three weeks modest. That is when some of you will run a flat 5k or 10k or an indoor event to see just how fast you are now!

Your workout today (and we suggest two weeks of complete recovery between each season).

Today is Thursday, December 15, 2022.

We suggest an slow warm up, 30-40 minutes of modest running, in a park or on a trail, and then, a cool down.
