Competitive Training Program Schedules

Structured high performance middle distance training

You are here

This page contains our individual group training schedules for the year.

Please Note

  • The exact dates of some of the seasons may vary. For example our indoor training season may be shorter or longer depending on the weather, however the variance is usually only one or two weeks.
  • Some of our older runners may train and race into the month of July.
  • We have "pre-season" cross country training in August for athletes that are already in our program, or will be joining our program in September.
  • Athletes are asked to be at the training location 10 minutes before the scheduled session start time.

Run on your own (ROYO)

In addition to our regularly scheduled training sessions we ask our athletes to do some of their running on their own or with a friend (s). These runs are usually low intensity distance runs used for base mileage. The frequency and duration of these runs vary depending on the age of the athlete and the time of season. For instance a 13 year old may do 1 ROYO session of 30 minutes per week in the later part of the cross country season, and an 18 year old runner may do 3 ROYO runs of 45 - 60 minutes each at the same point in the season .
