Girls XC Summer Training

Hi All, 

I am really looking forward to being part of this program and getting our season started! I have attached summer training programs under "team files". I know summers can get busy so runs and workouts can be modified and completed on days that work best for you. The more work you put in this summer the better off you will be once the season starts! I have also created a team on Running2win. Running2win is an website/ app where you can log your runs and make comments to help track your progress. Once you make an account on Running2win.com, you can join the team by searching "McLean HS XC" or using the team ID code: T-239521193506-08. This is of course optional but a great way to track your progress and motivate your teammates!

Let me know if you have any questions. I can't wait to meet you all!

Tara-Rose (TR)
