Training Schedule 1st 2 weeks

Posted Wednesday, July 03, 2013 by Kathleen Anderson

Monday is our kick off date to all get out there and RUN! Please don't wait for tomorrow, or the next day! Know that your body will need time to get in shape and the first weeks will be hard,but do your best to push through!

This is going to be one of our best seasons ever and we want you to be ready to get to your personal best. The training you do over the next 8 weeks will determine how you compete.

So again, what you need to do is RUN...6 times a week.

The training schedule is designed for three different levels. Freshman, JV and Varsity. You can chose to train at whatever level you feel ready too. For freshman who have never ran more than 3 miles, we recommend using the schedule for Freshman.

There are three types of intense workouts we will use.

Tempo Runs: (longer steady run at 85% of your max for the time of the run.)

Intervals:  (fast pace for short period of time, with an equal amount of rest)

Long Run:  (long steady run. Not fast. Longest run of each week)  

F (freshman)

JV (Junior Varsity 

V (Varsity)

Here's the first 2 weeks:
