Summer training philosophy : Summer training is vital for team success in the fall. To be a State or National contender today, teams must take every opportunity to be prepared for the season. With the season starting in September, the only time to get the base training necessary is summer. This is not a time to race; it is a time to get miles.
Our summer is divided into two phases: May and June (8 week training period) and the third week of July until school starts.
Key workouts : I like steady state running, 3 to 6 miles and long runs at this time of the year.
Mileage : The number of miles we run varies with the age of athletes we are working with. We have some running 17 miles per week and some at 60 miles per week.
