There are a couple of summer training assignments (25/ 30/ 35/ 40/ 45/ 50 miles per week). You will be put in one of these. See the “Summer Mileage Assignments – Miles per Week (MPW)” below.
• - New Runners: Start with the 25 MPW plan. Give it 3-4 weeks and if it is too easy for you talk to Coach Brick about moving up to the 30 MPW plan.
•- Returning Runners: See the chart below for your MPW assignment. Email Coach Brick if you have any questions.
• Summer Training mileage plans will be posted on the cross country website this week. They are designed to start on Sunday, May 17.
• Athletes should use the next 3 weeks to gradually build up their mileage. The following guidelines should be used over the next 3 weeks:
o Week 1 (May 17th-May 23rd) – run 5 days that week – 30-40 minutes runs (unless otherwise noted)
o Week 2 (May 24th-May 30th)– run 6 days that week – 30-40 minute runs w/ Saturday being longest run of the week (unless otherwise noted)
o Week 3 (May 31st- June 6th) – run 6 days that week – 40-50 minute runs w/Saturday being longest run of the week & cross training (unless otherwise noted)
• Miles run during the next 3 weeks should still be logged on VDOTO2: https://vdoto2.com/Calendar and will count as bonus miles for summer training incentives!
