This is a training plan designed for high school athletes entering into their freshman or sophomore years of school. This plan is ideally for runner's who have about 1 full year or less of high school running under their belt.
The goal of this summer miles plan is to establish a solid base and increase the aerobic capacity needed to compete in the fall during XC season. You'll notice there aren't a ton of speed workouts (typically 1 per week) and 3 days of drills and striders per week.
The plan starts around 13 miles per week and peaks close to 37. Basically, there is a nice gradual increase in mileage to get you ready and fit for more specific speed work during the season.
There is a 5k time trial at the end of the plan.
The most important thing to remember with this plan is consistency. You don't have to hit all 6 days of running every week, but the more consistent and continuous you run, the better off you'll be in the fall.
