New to Cross Country
Answered By Mick Grant & John Molvar
I have decided to join the Cross Country team. I'm excited but nervous. I start Monday morning. Other than going to a store specializing in running and getting a good pair of shoes, I'm completely new at this. Can you suggest training programs and stretching programs for someone like me? I'm 12. Going into 7th grade. It is the high school team but you can join in junior high school.
I'd imagine your new coach will have a training and stretching program for you. The key is to build up slowly. You are prone to injuries if you do too much too soon, so be patient. check this out http://www.youthrunner.com/content/view/2156/39/ Remember; Have Fun and Stay Healthy!
