It ended up being the most amazing season ever! The first few summer workouts saw 11 girls, slowly once school started the team grew to 18 girls, which is the highest number to ever participate in Cross Country. I was thrilled!
As a runner, I have learned the importance of strength training and conditioning as well as the importance of a variety of workouts so as to fight off boredom. We did things like the Deck of Cards workout (see my post on that amazing workout), long runs, speed workouts with hills, 1/2mile repeats, fartleks, Indian runs, Ladders, Friday Fun runs, Mile repeats, conditioning, etc.
It was incredible to watch the girls meet their goals and then have to set new goals for the season to continue to challenge themselves. We made it to Sectionals as a team and then had an individual qualify for State. They all worked so hard throughout the season and I am so proud of each and every one of them.
Just a few fun pictures from the season!
