TIPS: The single best thing you can do to prepare for Cross Country is RUN!! It is hard to get started, but here are some more great tips for Summer running!
⋅ Make sure to buy a good pair of running shoes, you should get a discount at most running stores if you tell them you are on a xc team.
⋅ Run in the mornings or evenings when it’s cooler, not in the middle of the day
⋅ You should run at a pace where you can carry a conversation
⋅ Run with friends and family – it’s easier to run with others!
⋅ Follow the given running schedule, make it a daily routine
⋅ Run for time, make it a goal to run for a set time without walking
⋅ Use the given running log to keep track and see how much you run over the Summer, turn into your coach the first day of practice!
⋅ Drink plenty of water and fluids during the Summer – stay hydrated!
⋅ Most importantly, HAVE FUN while you are running during the Summer!
