Trying to run quality mile so soon after cross country season ended???? What did you expect!
Remember when distance runners at schools like Oregon would peak for cross country and then outdoor NCAAs?
That's the way it should be for all distance runners.
Winter (indoor) track and spring (outdoor) track is for sprinters and field event guys and 800m runners who don't do xc.
All college track athletes should be peaking for two seasons ---- not three.
