WEEK 3: WHAT CAN YOU LEARN FROM OHIO STATE TRACK & XC COACH SARA VERGOTE?
As we head into week 3 of our Myers Mile season, the intensity of the workouts is going up - and it's time to fully commit to your progress as a miler this season. With that in mind, what better time to learn from one of the top distance running coaches in Ohio? Sara Vergote is a track and cross country coach at The Ohio State University, and her athletes have set school records, qualified for national championships, and built a reputation for OSU within the NCAA. We asked Coach Vergote what kind of athletes get the most out of their running career, and she had great insights to share that can help YOU to become a better athlete and stronger racer. Coach Vergote had some workout examples and philosophies on the mile to share as well, so be sure to check out the full video below.
Just like last week, we've split your training options into two different paths. If you want to maximize your potential in the mile this spring, we have a "true miler" workout plan for both middle school and high school. Or, if you want to build aerobic strength this spring, with an eye on building towards cross country starting now, then stick to our "beginner" or "advanced" aerobic strength plans instead.
