In these following pages you will find the basic training that I had done in my high school years which led me to be one of the top runners in the county and state where I grew up. Some of these principals I had to self teach myself and some of the others were shown to me by my coach or I had observed watching professional runners. At my time and area not many schools took cross country seriously so the coaches had to be a jack of all trades.
