Foot Locker Finalist Charles Hicks Shares Summer Training Blog

What's up runners? My name is Charles Hicks and I'll be posting a weekly blog here as I go through my junior season of XC. Last season I was a Footlocker Finalist and got the chance to compete in San Diego and hopefully this year I'll compete at the national level again.

 I finished l
ast year with a 5k pr of 15:07 but now I'm looking ahead, as I attempt to break the 15 minute barrier. My teammates and I have high goals for ourselves and we all know what it's going to take to succeed this year. Coming off a great summer training we can't wait for the season to start. Apart from a week traveling up and down the East Coast, we have been training in our hometown, Jacksonville.

Throughout the summer I've been running every day on a schedule of mileage runs with bi-weekly tempo workouts.
The early morning runs are always tough but there's nothing quite like watching it pay off during the season. Let's hope it's a good one! That's all for this week, thanks for stopping by.
