Louisville Cross Country Training Program
Effective Cross Country Trraining
Cross-country athletes should strongly consider using Top Recruit as an add-on to their year-round running regimen. This yearly preparation is designed entirely upon the fact that runners never really take much time off from running. A typical high school cross-country in-season will usually last from the beginning of September through October, and for college typically September through the middle of November. This calendar time frame does not take into account if a cross-country runner participates in the spring track and field season, which typically runs from April through May or June. The stress and constant training requires the same level of recovery and injury prevention work. You can only train as often as a healthy body will let you.
The year-round training workouts are adjusted according to the runners running load that should be predetermined for each running day throughout the week. The training does not stop it is adapted to each athlete’s needs based on the season within the training year, how close they are to a race, and what they are working toward during that phase of running. Our goal is to create a stronger and more stable runner. Getting strength in key areas of the body is vital to long term running success.
With cross-country being such a repetitive sport, we understand that we are not to wear them down anymore then what they are getting when actually participating in preparation for a meet. Meaning we will maintain the strength gains we worked so hard to get as the different seasons progress. Also, Top Recruit Sport Performance Specialists will focus on keeping their legs fresh and ready to compete. An once of prevention is worth a pound of cure has never been more true with our cross country training program. We are ready to change the way cross country is coached and trained in Louisville.
