Multi Tiered Training For XC & Track Aaron Davidson Shawnee Mission North High School
My Experiences… High School Lyle Knudson High Altitude Camp Fort Hays State – Majored in XC & Track (Health & Human Performance & Education) Post Collegiate Competition Shawnee Mission North
Traditional Distance Training Nothing wrong with this model! Great Cross Country approach. Assumes you can not increase Volume & Intensity Aerobic conditioning decreases over time. Emphasizes the peak.
High School Coaching We dont have our runners all year. Some coaches have commitment to other sports. Some coaches dont coach both seasons. Track athletes come from a mixed background. Track athletes train for multiple races. (Much more dynamic) Track and XC training should be different. XC should be include more aerobic training and higher miles. Track Season =14 Weeks Cross Country Season = 26 Weeks

Multi Tiered Training System Defined Training that involves progressing athletes through 4 different paced training sessions over a specified training microcycle. Athletes train ABOVE and BELOW their goal pace. (Speed intensive workouts) Key is becoming comfortable at different paces.
Benefits Quality vs. Quantity Training racing skills vs. Getting in Shape Focuses on Speed & Speed endurance from beginning to end. If speed is the name of the game then we should never get too far away from it. Seb Coe Allows athletes to have Range. Gives athlete best chance to PR throughout the entire season. Does NOT emphasize mileage. Helps prevent injuries. Does NOT emphasize the Peak. Not depending on a taper phase. Not based on Volume. Workout is done when athlete is no longer meeting the objective of the workout. Volumes and recovery can be adjusted.
How to set it up… Plan 2 Week Cycles. Split team into 2 groups. DISTANCE & MID-DISTANCE. Each group has their own Training Distance or (TD) Determine TRAINING DISTANCE or (TD). Example: MID Training Distance = 800m Example: LONG Training Distance = 3200m Introduce slower paces first. Time trial at beginning of the season helps determine target times. Athletes must do 2 time trial runs. I like for my Long Distance kids to be at 3200m (TD) when the season starts. I will spend the first 2 weeks introducing faster paces to them in fartleks.
Set Training Distance (TD) (TD) Determines the paces they will be training at for each 2 week cycle. MIDLONG 200m800m 400m1600m 800m (TD)3200m (TD) 1600m5,000m 3200m10,000m
Each Cycle Consists Of… (LR) Longest Run of the Week (20% to 25% of the previous weeks mileage) 40 miles previous week = 10 miles 30 miles previous week = 7.5 miles 20 miles previous week = 5 miles (AT) Aerobic Threshold Runs Threshold Pace; 1 mile time + ~60 seconds; very non specific pace; non conversation pace). (OD) Over Distance: 1 Race Pace over Target Pace (OOD) Over-Over-Distance: 2 Race Paces over Target Pace (UD) Under Distance: 1 Race pace under Target Pace (UUD) Under-Under-Distance: 2 Race Paces Over Target Pace (AR) Aerobic Recovery (RD) Race Days or Test Days

Recovery Rates Long Interval Workouts – Equal Recovery, work down to slightly less than equal. Short Interval Workouts – Can make or break a workout depending on how you prescribe it. Must watch the workouts! I like to break short interval workouts into sets. Keep the heart rate high throughout the set while they are still running efficiently, then recover between sets. Not full recovery until late season! Speed Intervals – Close to full recovery; 2 to 3 minutes to allow energy system to recover.
Paper Airplane Model If its built right, it will fly right.
Training like a boxer. Hitting on all phases, all the time. Prepared to come out swinging or last the full 12 Rounds. Morning Runs + Sprints, Hills, Stairs + Jump Rope + Plyometrics + Agility & Foot Speed + Weight Training + Core Work + Boxing
Training Paces 4:40) Training Paces 5:30) We do pre-season time trials in the 400M, 800m, and 1600m to get current marks.

Athletes dont care how much you know until they know how much you care. Aaron Davidson
