Summer Training Themes

Through End of July - 

Consistency - Be consistent with running.  Get to the point you are running 6 days a week (Varsity, 20 out of 21 days) and being consistent with mileage.  Long Runs are your most important weekly run, but being consistent is KEY!  It is better to spread out all the running you are doing weekly.  Run the second half of your runs faster than the first half, and when someone in your group wants to push the pace - try to hang on.  Do your drills and stretching after EVERY RUN!  Be Consistent with your training and you will reap great rewards!

Moderation - Every increase needs to be moderate - Aggregate improvement over marginal gains.

Increase your weekly mileage every week -  At most 5 - 7 miles a week (consistency).  

Increase your long run each week - at most by 2  miles each week. 

Increase your Cross Training each Week

Cross Train! - You should be doing between 2 to 3 hours of additional activitiy every day!  This can include such activities as Jr. Lifeguards, soccer, ultimate frisbee, hiking, walking the dog, playing camp games, surfing, swimming, pushups, extra exercises, lifting weights, etc.  Make it fun, if it becomes something you wish you were not doing, change the activity.  To be a better runner, you need to become a better athlete.

Vacation Travel

Have a General Plan to stay active and busy if you are traveling this summer.  Spending some time to look at safe locations to run can create a much less stressful and fun time traveling.  No one should ever have to run alone in a new place.

During August -
Consistency, Training and not Straining, Moderate increases.
