Hi sam, thanks for your advice and great times btw! talking of 300m reps, yestersday we were doing 600m reps 500, then 300, i managed a 1.31 600, a 73s 500, and 40.2s 300 well wit a 7min rest in between. After this would u say that its more speed i need compared to endurance for the 4?
yeah, fair point, whenever we've come across 300 reps 45 seconds has been feeling fine providing a decent recovery such as 3-4 mins inbetween. Possibly the best way to sort it is to give a 400m trial run a go and see how that goes, maybe aim for a first 200 in 26s and aim to maintain through the las 200
hi, firstly just to clear up a few things, i am 16, 5ft 6 and 60kg. I have competed for my A.C for 5 years originally running different distances however i have come to concentrate on the 200m and 400m over the last couple years.
My current p.bs are 24.9 -200m and 54.8 - 400m
Now for this years track season i am really hoping to knock chunks out of both events, especially the 200 which i feel is a pretty slow time at the moment. I have been training on speed and speed endurance throughout since september and have been noticing considerable improvements, especially my speed and strength.
I have a question... - in a training session we were doing 400m splits with a 1minute recovery in between 200's, this counted as one set. We had a 4 minute rest, after the 400 split, and we repeated this 4 times. My first split consisted of two 25s 200's which i was quite impressed with. I know i went of slightly too quick and the rest averaged about 27/28s. What id like to know is, if i can do two 25s 200m with very little recovery, then can this be translated, when fresh into a 400m that would give me maybe 50/51s???
