We headed out to New Braunfels for XC camp and it was a blast. We got some good training in and had a lot of fun. I’ll try and post some details when I got time. School also started yesterday…fun stuff…For now here’s the log:

This caused Jeremy to get dragged out to fast too, but oh well we made the mistake and corrected it).

    Hey, good week. What are your thoughts on the World Championships (particularly the 1500 meters)?

    i was wondering if you could explain why one would do short hill sprints vs. long hill sprints, and the correct times of years to do either of these. for example, a MD to Dis. runner in winter base phase, precomp and comp phases.
