RECAP: Pre-Season Cross Country Training
For the two Fridays past we graced the blue tartan of the Green Point Athletics Stadium, with some of our youngsters, for the first time in prep for the Fall's Cross Country races.
Take a look at just some of the shots from our two-session training camp.
There was a lot packed into the hour. Anyone who has been around our training will know that we oppose the 'over-training' of young and upcoming runners. Therefore the sessions were all about high relative intensities, low mileage and generous recovery intervals to prep them for the short (in relative terms) distances, but high intensities that they are required to put out.
Much was learned and fun was had. Looking forward to being back on the blue rubber soon!
