WEEK OF 4.11.2021
Week 1 of 12 Week Cycle.
Week 1 will focus on 100/200/300/400 pacing and intervals.
Speed and Lactate Threshold workouts.
Monday 4.12.2021 @5:30 pm
100 Meter Pace Training
12x100m, with :60 seconds rest in between, hold intervals +/- :03-:05 seconds.
Rest and Recover 3:00.
6×200, 100m recovery walk, reset at start line :10 seconds, hold intervals +/- :01-:03 seconds.
This is designed in determining your 100m pace. This is a key component and first step in setting your paces for any type of interval training. Your focus is staying consistent on each interval.
The 200m intervals are a test if you can maintain your 100m paces. The hold window is a little tighter, so the focus is consistency.
The initial 100m runs could be faster, so prepare for your slow interval when fatigue sets in. History will show you will find your true pace within 3-5 intervals. Once you find this pace, then stick with it.
Avoid the pitfall of starting out to hot. You will know if your interval times have bigger variances as you go along.
Total Time. In Comments records your slowest and fastest times for both the 100 and 200 m runs.
Thursday 4.15.21 @5:30 pm
300/400 Meter Training
6×300, with :90 seconds rest in between, hold intervals +/- :05 – :10 seconds.
Rest and Recover 4:00.
6×400 with 2:00 rest in between, hold intervals +/- :03 – :08 seconds.
This is designed to find consistency in your 300m and 400m intervals. The hold windows are little bigger, which allow the athlete to find and settle into there true pace. If your hitting a faster pace, stay on it. If your a little inconsistent, then stay at that slower pace and attempt to hit that pace each time. Key is consistency.
The Work:Rest ratio is close to 1:1. The hold windows are little bigger and allows each athlete to settle in not have to fight for your pace in each interval.
The pitfall is the fatigue factor when you reach your 400m intervals. You will have ran a mile with the 300m intervals. Get your rest and recover. If you have too, in between each interval, perform a small recovery walk like 50 meters or something like that.
Total Time. Record your slowest and fastest 300/400 meter intervals in comments section.
- Be sure to wear a watch. Coaches can keep times for you, but it’s easier if each athlete has there own watch.
