TRANSITION FROM 3200 TO 5K
HIGH JUMP GURU??? In three years jumper at Pilot Point who was a two time state champion 2. Two 58 jumpers at Flower Mound jumper at Flower Mound Past four years 1. One 54 high jumper 2. No boy has jumped higher than 64
Freaks and Geeks We all have had our share of freaks! Goal is basically to not screw them up How do we get the mediocre kids to improve and contribute on the varsity level?
Progression Through Goals Athletes set individual and team goals Set three different time goals Discuss how they are going to reach their goals Athletes take ownership of their future
Progression Through Mileage Main reason for our athletes improvement is from increases in their mileage Starts every year during the summer time Goal is to improve cardiovascular system I cant train them to be like Usain Bolt!
Mileage Continued Follow ten percent rule Example: Athletes who runs 30 miles a week will only increase their mileage by 3 the next week After every three weeks take a down week and cut mileage by 20 percent
Summer Mileage Kids receive a training log at the end of the school year Required to coach once a week and report their mileage Coach keeps track of mileage on an excel sheet and updates website weekly
Mileage for Girls Freshmen: 20 to 30 miles a week Sophomores: miles a week Juniors: miles a week Seniors: miles a week
Mileage for Boys Freshmen: miles a week Sophomores: miles a week Juniors: miles a week Seniors: miles a week
Pace for Distance Runs Freshmen Athletes: Whatever they can manage! Returning Athletes: 2 minutes slower then 5k race pace. Sometimes faster and sometimes slower Important to focus on FEEL

Training Phases Preseason- Focus is on building endurance Early season- Focus is on SPEED and endurance Mid Season- Focus is on speed endurance Peak Season- Focus returns to speed and maintaining endurance
Tempos Pace should be about 30 seconds slower than 5k race pace. Should be able to say a few words, but not talk in complete sentences. Should feel like you could have gone faster and longer AVOID RACING!
Tempo Workouts We have a 2.5 mile hilly loop that we use. Coach can monitor the times Start of season we run a 5 mile tempo End of season we run a 6 to 7.5 mile tempo One BIG workout is the 10 mile tempo. At this length not really at tempo pace.
Cruise Intervals Goal is to run slightly faster than tempo pace. Helps in the transition to the faster intervals. For every five minutes take 60 second rest.
Cruise Interval Workouts Boys start with 8x1000 with 60 seconds rest at the beginning of the season. Girls start with 8x800 at the beginning of the season with 60 second Boys work their way to 5x1600 with 60 seconds rest by the end of the season. Girls work their way to 7x1200 with 60 seconds rest by the end of the season. Why the equal rest for girls and boys?
Fartleks Goal depends on the length of the faster sessions. Athletes run continuously and speed up when they hear the whistle. Kids for some reason love this workout compared to tempos and cruise intervals. Can also focus on running in packs because slower athletes can catch up during the rest.
Fartlek Workouts with 60 second rest Sets of seconds with 60 seconds between reps and two minutes between sets 10x3 minutes with 60 seconds rest
Early Season Time to DROP THE HAMMER!!! Work on turnover to provide a better transition for the longer intervals Workouts do not accumulate high levels of lactic acid. Girls this year may want to focus more on tempos and fartleks.
Speed for Cross Country Hill circuits thanks to Arthur Lydiard 45 minutes continuous for Varsity Boys 40 minutes continuous for Varsity Girls Use long and short hills Also combined with fartlek running at top of the hill
Speed for Track Workouts below are thanks to Jack Daniels 3(6x x400) at mile race pace 3(5x x600) at mile race pace 3(4x x800) at mile race pace
Mid Season Speed Endurance Being able to use that speed and carry it over a longer period of time Focus is mostly on running at race pace Do not overcook these intervals!!!
Progression Through Intervals One of our staple workouts is k race pace with equal rest. How do we improve? Run faster intervals Lengthen distance of intervals Run more intervals Shorter rest
Run Faster Original workout was 2:20 with 2:20 standing rest. Improve by running 2:18 with 2:20 standing rest. Can athletes keep running faster each and every workout? Concern of overtraining?
Run Longer Original workout was 2:20 with 2:20 standing rest. Improve by running 2:55 with 2:20 standing rest. Focus on carrying pace for a longer distance Some athletes struggle with having to run over two whole laps! Or maybe its just my girls team?
Run More Original workout was 2:20 with 2:20 standing rest. Improve by running 2:20 with 2:20 standing rest. I like this especially for cross country! Good for freshmen girls who dont have the stamina yet to run less and the top athletes run more.
Shorter Rest Original workout was 2:20 with 2:20 standing rest. Improve by running 2:20 with 2:00 standing rest. I especially like this workout for the end of the season. Usually by this point you have a good idea of what pace they can accomplish in a race.
Girls Intervals Progression 12x400 with 200 meter jog 4(800, 400) 2 minutes between rest and 2:30 between sets. 4(1000, 300) 2 minutes between reps and 5 minutes between sets.
Peak Season Goal is to feel sharp and ready to race Workouts should give the athlete confidence Focus on teams strengths and not their weaknesses
Peak Season Workouts for XC 3x2000 with 60 seconds rest plus 4x minute fartlek with one minute rest between intervals 6 mile tempo on the district course focusing on negative splits
Peak Season Workouts for Track Depends on the event and their strength Treat athletes as individuals 4x1600 with sixty second rest plus 3x150 3(600, 200) 10x200s for last workout before peak race
Things Flo Mo Girls Focus On Race is not a sprint Tempos and Fartleks Running on softer surfaces Finishing strong
Favorite XC Workouts minutes of Fartlek mile tempo run minute long run
