 XC Pre-Season begins on June 1st in 2020!

Phase 1 Training Plan (thru mid-June): run 3-5 days per week for 30-45 minutes each @E (conversational) pace, ending the last min of each run @Tempo pace.  Then 1 day each week @E for 45-60 minutes (note purposefully minutes, not miles), preferably on softer surface (eg, the trails at WH Rez).  At least 1 day each week off (no running).  No weekly limit on cross training (bike, swim, hike, walk, weights, stretching, core, etc.).  Keep your coach posted on what you do...

Phase 2 Training Plan (starting mid-June, ONLY IF you have followed Phase 1 for 3 consecutive weeks): same as above, except 1) gradually increase weekly Long Run to 60-90 minutes each, and 2) end 2-3 Easy runs each week with 6-8 striders.  Also, try to maintain regular running partners, cohorts of 8 max, to minimize exposure and contact tracing.

In-person coaching is slated to begin on July 6.  P&R Fun Runs kick off on July 8th!


We all strive to be well balanced student-athletes, but only one can be the top scholar of the graduating senior class.  

This year, that honor - among ALL the (boys) sports teams across the entire NHS community - belongs to…



A huge congrats to Joe for a huge accomplishment.  We are so proud of you for winning this most prestigious award.
