  • Cross Country Running Advice

    My middle daughter will be running cross country for the next school year. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      She needs to run during the summer. My daughter ran cross-country in middle school and high school, and she always put off running until the middle of August, when something always came up.

        I know they are doing conditioning next month and I told her that she might as well start running now so we went out for an hour and she did some walk/run type stuff.

          I have my xcountry running team eat just a little before and have something for after if they are hungry. My daughter gets really hungry at night if she is running a lot. She eats a lot of ice cream--I either make it myself or I buy quality stuff with simple ingredients, nothing artificial-haagen daz, turkey hill natural, annies--but check the labels for the simplest recipe. Also on the hardest days I feed her bacon and eggs with fruit for breakfast.

          I have cut up fruit at the end of a lot of practices and the girls devour it.

          Really, they are young, made to move and the mileage is not extreme.
