Few sports can be considered as challenging as cross country running. The difficult terrain, the weather and the fierce competition all combine to test the very limits of your skill and endurance. To help you overcome these challenges, we present a few quick tips from Cross Country Running Shoes 101 on how to become a better cross country runner.

Keep Training Off-Season
Cross country season lasts for only about three months in the autumn. However, that doesn’t mean that you simply take it easy for the rest of the year. What do you think other cross country runners are doing all winter long? If you guessed “training”, then move to the head of the class. You can choose from any number of winter and spring sports to keep yourself in shape. Just don’t forget — lace up your off road shoes and keep those long runs in your schedule every week in order to maintain your base endurance level.

Support Your Teammates
Cross country is, first and foremost, a team sport. Every time you help a teammate, you help your team add yourself as well. Whether it’s a training run or the final race of the season, always be prepared to offer encouragement, support and help to your teammates whenever possible. Your experiences are valuable and can help someone else. When everyone pulls together, that’s when team spirit is at its highest.

Stay Loose
Running cross country means enduring long hours of fatigue and discomfort. That’s practically what it means to run cross country. If you fight against the discomfort and starts training, your muscles will invariably tighten up and cause you to slow down. By keeping loose and relaxed, you stay in control of your body and in control of the race. Not only will your race times improve, but you will also how a lot fewer aches and pains afterwards.
