Florida State Cross Country Summer Workouts – June 2005
Generally we use June as a mileage build up period. The majority of you have already taken your break and have had 2-4 weeks of preparation time to get your routine going again. June is just an extension of that. July will start to build in some quality running as well, but for now:
This would put mileage at 35+ for women and 50 or so for guys. We will be at 40+ for ladies and 60+ for guys in July and 45 to 50 for ladies and 70 for guys in August. Again, it depends upon your history. Remember that it is always our goal to average 10 miles more per week than we did the year before during the months of August and September.
If you’ve been doing at least this much for awhile then go ahead and do an extra mile or two a day. No morning runs are needed at this time, but if you can do some total body development through weights, drills and core development exercises then definitely do so.
