Winter Training Information

Off season training to stay fit or to prepare for track will be posted in this section. The coaches would like to advise all athletes to take about two weeks off from any serious/heavy running to allow the body to recover from the season. Cross training is a great way to stay in shape during these two weeks and through the winter months. More to come...
