WODS for the Week of 9.20.2020


Monday 9.21.2020 @5:30 pm


pyramid

4 x 100, 2 x 200, 1 x 400 (max effort), 2 x 200, 4 x 100

Rest as needed between efforts.

Details:

Gradually build your tempo during the 100s to 95% perceived exertion. Your first 200 should be slightly slower than your second. Aim for a range of 4-5 seconds for the second effort. By the time you approach the 400m max effort–you should be readied up to tackle this one with explosive speed. We are hoping to see some 400m PRs today!!! You will have to really push past what you think you’re capable of, particularly on the last leg of that 400. Reverse the tempo progression for the remaining 200s and 100s. This is your cool-down “reward.”. 🙂

Purpose:

We’re really gonna put you to the test this week–with a low volume workout, executed at extremely high intensity. This is “speed work,” used to recruit fast twitch muscle fibers, and to develop their ability to come through when you need them; particularly as you approach that finish line! This type of workout requires full recovery between reps/sets. Good luck!!!

Hints:

Good Warm Up and Stretching are key. Start out slow and then bulid up momentum towards your 400 m run. Rest as needed, but no too long. Focus on keeping rest no longer than three minutes between intervals. The early rounds keep moving. After the 400 meter run, use the interval work as a cool down.

Score:

The only score for this weeks workout will be the 400 meter run. Try to establish a benchmark time this week.


Thursday 9.24.2020


bridge

There will be a twenty minute time cap. You will attempt in achieving the max amount of bridge repeats within the time cap.

Details:

You will run up and over and back on a continuous run for twenty minutes.

Focus:

Focus on your form up the hills and hit the hills with some intensity. Use the downhill portion as a recovery at times and focus on running in a controlled manner down hill.

Hints:

Have a goal in mind at every five minute mark.  Keep striving to hit these goals every five minute increment.

Score:

The total number of bridge repeats within time cap.

Priebe Strong 1062

October 24th, 2020

Priebe Strong 1062 is dedicated to Mark Priebe and his family in light of the tragedy that struck on June 9th, 2020. Though we are heartbroken by those events we are hopeful for the day that Mark will walk again.  We dedicate this run to raise awareness, financial support, and motivation for Mark and his family as he endures one of the most challenging obstacles that lie ahead of them.

This event consists of a Family Mile walk/run, 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon. After the races, stick around for a celebration of Marks Recovery Journey and have a ton of fun! The Celebration will include Food Trucks, Games, a Dunk Tank, a special surprise, and a whole lot else!

This would be a good opportunity to raise money and also a good goal for any athlete who wants to participate in a race.

See link below for race details and information:

goldilocks

12 rounds: Run 200m at 1mile PR pace, then immediately run 200m at 1.5x that pace. This a benchmark workout for Springfield Endurance.

(SCALED VERSION) 6 to 8 rounds ideally. This will be up to each athlete. If you feel good then keep pushing through.

PURPOSE: 

Push through the 200 meter intervals at each varying pace. Just keep moving.

HINTS: 

Determine your paces prior to the workout.

Example:

60 seconds x 7:00 Mile PR= 420 seconds

420/8= <:53 seconds Mile PR Pace

Then :53×1.5= :79 second pace for recovery 200m

My paces would be :53 seconds for MilePR Pace and :79 seconds for 200m recovery.

SCORE: 

Workout is for total time.

We will continue back north on S. Austin towards S. Creek Greenway Trail. We will continue towards Lake Drummond. We will continue our path and take a left at the first fork in the road.

This will take us towards Dwarf Conifer Garden and on the south side of Lake Drummond. We will continue around the lake towards the bridge and waterfall area towards the hill area.

At this point, you will perform a series of four shuttle runs on the hill. We will be running towards the ultimate goal of reaching the botanical gardens center.  Estimate the hill into four equal sections and run the appropriate distance and back until you have ran up the entire hill in four shuttle type runs.

After the hill runs, we will then commence back onto S. Creek Greenway Trail back towards the bridge where you will you run over and back on the bridge.  After you perform the over and back on the bridge, you will be done.

Recovery walk back to the gym.

DETAILS: 

The pace will be determined by each athlete.  This can be performed as a ruck sack run or normal run.  I would speculate this will be a three to four mile run with some hills and other varying levels of terrain from asphalt to grass.

PURPOSE: 

The goal is to simulate a trail type run with different terrains and hills.

Add a ruck sack for an added bonus.

HINTS: 

Just run and hit the hills with some intensity.

SCORE: 

Total Time.

WODS for the Week of 7.26.20


Short Interval Monday 7.27.20 @5:30 pm


up the ante

Twenty Four Minute Running Clock: 

Six Rounds (Four Minute Rounds) 

The workout will alternate each sequence.

Rounds 1, 3, 5

Sequence #1: 

Run 50 meters into 50 meter recovery walk.

Run 100 meters, Rest :30 seconds.

Run 200 meters at Fast Pace to Faster.

Rest remaining time in round.

Rounds 2, 4, 6

Sequence #2: 

Run 200 meters at a Fast Pace to Faster.

Rest :30 seconds.

100 meter run into 50 meter recovery walk.

50 Meter Sprint.

Rest remaining time in round.

DETAILS:

  • 50 meters should be as fast as possible with 50 meter recovery walk. A good goal would be within :45 to :60 seconds.
  • 100 meter run should be at a Fast Pace based on your Mile PR pace. I would shoot for a goal of below :30 seconds each 100 meter run.
  • 200 meter run should be equal to your 100 pace x2. If you run 100 meters in :25 seconds then your goal pace for the 200 meters is :50 seconds.

PURPOSE:

Develop and maintain a pace within the realm of your MILE PR pace or faster each round.

HINTS:

Adjust your paces and work through the shortened rest period and be ready to run each round.

SCORE:

You will score each round separately. There will be six (6) separate timed scores.


Long Interval 7.30.20 @5:30 pm


setting the bar

Four (4) Sets:

300 meters at Fast Pace

300 meters at Easy Pace

600 meters at Fast Pace.

DETAILS:

  • The first 300 meter speed should be at equal or faster than your Mile PR Pace.
  • The second 300 meter run is any speed to that allows you to recover.
  • The target time for the 600 meter interval is equal or faster than 2x the first 300 meter fast interval.
  • The rest B/T sets equals the total fast times.
  • Each set is a continuous 1200 meter run.

HINTS:

Develop a game plan for each set and each interval.

My first 300 meter run would be consistent with your MILE PR pace. My goal would be :75 seconds or below.

300 meter recovery jog would be 1:30 to 1:45.

My last 600 meter run would want to fall into 2:30 or below, with the emphasis on being faster than your above 300 meter pace.

My approximate rest time would be 3:00 to 4:00 minutes.

SCORE:

This will be for total time.

dash

Twenty Minute AMRAP:

200 meter run, rest :30 seconds.

DETAILS:

This workout is designed for each athlete to develop and maintain their own pacing for each 200m interval.  There is limited rest in between each interval.

PURPOSE:

Develop and maintain a pace within the realm of your MILE PR pace  to a moderate pace. The goal is to hold or maintain paces within +/- :02 – :03 seconds per interval. Once you find that comfortable pace, then stick with it and push through.

HINTS:

Just be steady and smooth. Get your rest and shoot for a goal for the workout. Get through the halfway mark and keep moving. This will be a long workout and will push your physical and mental capacity.

SCORE:

This workout will be scored by the amount of reps you complete within the 20 minute time cap. You must complete the entire 200m in order for this to be counted as a rep.  Please count any partial meters and put in the comments section of WODIFY.

We last programmed this back in March 2013.
