    The season is about to come to an end for most high schoolers, and the top athletes will be in US Champs. We recommend for all athletes take a two-week easy recovery season and then, around July 1, we will begin Summer training, with eight weeks-twelve weeks of mileage work as we prepare you for the fall cross country season.

    The last races of the season are always a highlight. Are you overtrained? Are you looking for a big race? For me, I would always find a couple races to focus on at the end of the season. In college, I would race many of the same races, from 2 miles early in the season to 5,000m in the middle, and finally to 10,000m races or some tough 10k races. In my senior year, I ran a PB at 10,000m on the track, and then, went back to the roads, finding some challenging courses.

    During summer training, I would race at all comers once a week, mostly a 2 mile for seven weeks, and then, ending the all-comers season with a 5000m race, good preparation for fall cross country season.

    Good luck in your last races of the season!
