DBU XC Women, October 2017


This session was done by our women the week of our Conference Championships where we finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 7th for a TEAM score of 17 points. We also had the Freshman of the Year who finished 9th overall, for 6-ladies in the top-10.

It was a good day.

This session is one of the easiest sessions we did all year…it’s just a little pre-race prep and continued tempo work, which I believe you should never get away from. The volume was about 3/5 of what they were doing all season for tempo work…and at a pretty relaxed clip…but again, it’s just a little pre-race session, which by checking the results that weekend showed it was just what the ladies needed!
