You can hardly run cross country in Mississippi and not know Brooklyn Biancamano, Long Beach. She ran 17:58.03 last year as a freshman. She then followed that up with 2:14.86, 4:54.58 and 10:53.16. Brooklyn is going to write a blog each week to talk about training and racing.
Alrighty y'all, welcome to our 2019 cross country season! Ever since our Mississippi high school track season came to a close last May, I've been anxiously waiting for August to roll around. Over the summer, I decided to give my legs a rest from impact but I didn't just take off and do nothing. Instead of running every day, I did cardio exercises in the pool, core workouts at home, weights at the gym, plus a couple of plyometric workouts. I even did some runs in the loose sand at the beach.July 29th marked the official day our high school teams were allowed to start running and Long Beach didn't waste a second. As our first week back from the summer: we had a timed run for pacing goals, an introduction to speed work, a tempo run, and a form technique drill (an 800 run holding a potato chip in each hand, trying not to break them). Gotta have a little fun mixed in with all of our work.But anyways... I wish everyone good luck this season and can't wait to see y'all out on the courses!
I am looking for a male athlete to do the same thing. Might even take several other females and males to do this.
