    Overview

    Cross Country is a fall sport. For that reason it is imperative to build a solid foundation during the summer. Most cross country athletes are told by their coaches to make sure that they do some summer running. But what does that really mean?

    There are two types of running; aerobic and anaerobic. Aerobic running focuses on a relaxed breathing technique and encourages athletes to work on form. Anaerobic running falls under the category of restricted air, which pertains to hard workouts such as interval training. The key to being a successful cross country athlete relies on the ability of being able to properly balance these two types of running methods.
