10 Weeks of Summer Training (a Guideline)

…Bored just running nothing but distance runs all summer?


…Want to follow a program that will help to prepare you for the rigors of the XC season while maintaining some speed from your track season?

Here’s a guideline to follow for the 10 weeks of summer leading up to the Tahoe Running Camp. …It’s OK to run a bit less than this schedule, or start with more gradual miles, but if you follow this general training regiment, you’ll well prepared for this upcoming XC season!
General Guideline for Miles: Freshmen-Sophomores = 35-40/wk; Juniors-Seniors = 45-50/wk (OK to track minutes vs. miles in schedule below)

  • "Long" = conversational pace (goal is to increase run time 5 min each week) + do 4 x 150m-200m build-ups after run if possible
  • "Easy" = conversational pace (goal is to get in "easy" miles to recover, but typically recover from longer run day before). 
  • "Medium" = start with conversational pace, gradually build up to finish ~90% 5K race pace
  • "Fartlek" = start with 10-15 minute easy pace > surge (at 5K race pace +) > jog (rest) off/on for based on interval in middle of run; finish eas
Push-ups = at least 3 x week: Girls = 8-10 (try to increase +2 each week) Guys = 20-25 (try to increase +5 each week)
Sit-ups/Crunches = at least 3 x week: Girls 20-25 x 2 reps / Guys = 30-35 x 2 reps
