Hi im from Texas going into my senior outdoor track season and im really interested in running in college. A little on my background-this is the first year that ive focused on running. Basketball used to be my primary sport, but i would compete on the cross country team my sophmore and junior year without any smart or consitent running training. My prs over my senior year are: xc 5K 16:36 and 4:43 for the mile. Yes slow, i know, but i firmly believe that by the end of track ill have my mile time at 4:30 or under due to more fast training on the track.
I dont have the greatest high school coach and he hasnt exactly given us the smartest training. His training program is more or less unstructured and he"ll throw in random time trials every other week when we could be getting in some good work. Also the highest mileage that ive done consistently is 40 miles per week(im currently making the transition to 50)
I believe that with proper training and time i could be a much better runner than i am currently. Do you guys know of any D1 schools in the south that are good with developing walk ons such as me? Or any good D2 schools for that matter?
Thanks for taking the time to read this
