speed endurance session.
2x280m - accel till 20m then maintain, focus on relaxation and technique. Felt relativly easy, still, lactic was in the hammies at the end of each. Times, stuffed up 1st effort. 39.1 nd effort. 8min recovery between efforts.
1x200m, as the 280 but only 200m. times, 26.2 and 9-10min after the 280m. felt easy, relaxed and smooth.
Groin was only felt during the accelerations and at the end of the speed endurances due to lactic pooling in the groin…its nearly better.

200m + straight, + the session was for 4x60m split runs, due to being a indoor program. Which yes = 240, but it was for 3 sets of that. Hence the 3rd effort was 200m. So total volume remained unchanged.

Jog home, still had to carry med ball.

hard med ball work out, really driving the ball hard into wall and throws high and hard into air.
No axcess to gym.
easy hard easy, felt like the Sprint position was being hit well, and hence, high speed felt like it was being acheived. it felt like such a brief period of time for the 20m, still, i felt like a touch more speed is possable with a longer lead up than 20m easy.
Nar, it was friday evening, no child minding on fri arvo’s. and wife was on afternoon shift till late.
once gym membership runs out, might have to get my gym back from a mate, he lives 8hrs north though.
weekend, went fishing sat, no time left for training sat…
Sunday, got caught up doing studies!! now there is a first, next thing i know, its dark.
speed endurance session
warm up felt OK, hard to warm up in high winds, it cuts through you too keep you cool.
280m, 37.75, felt really tired after it? within 5 min, i was nearing being asleep? what the…
200m didn’t time, felt OK, but the cold high winds seemed to cool the tendons down. worked on technique, stepping over, dorsiflexion and triple extension.
very tried at the end. was going to do another 200 or 280 but something felt wrong. went home. possibility of dehydration, didn’t think that i drank much this morning, by days end, i think that my daughters slight sickness was rubbing off on me. sore guts. Explains why the tiredness…
Normally shake crap like this in 24hrs. see how i go.
Rating of session,
2. was not impressed.
stomach bug got me a massive wednesday. felt slugish all morning, but no signs of stomach problems.
lunch time, what ever was in there, came out, over the course of the next 8hrs.
lost 3kg in weight, mostly fluid of course
lemon water seems to be the only thing i can keep down
No training today,( thursday) either, goto get them fluids back
mostly filled up in the fluid department, perhaps half a kg off? speed session - reduced by 1/4% to allow for weeks sickness.
3x30m high starts 3min rec.
3x30m belly starts, 3min rec - no blocks to use, so did belly starts
2 x 20 easy 20fast 20easy 4min rec
2 x 20fast 20easy 20fast 8min rec
Track session felt great. starts felt good for 1st 20m but need to learn to then relax a lot more after the drive
the 20fast bits felt really fast, i could actually feel the hammies working during the run, before, i could only feel the hammies at the end of a effort- fatigue, lactic ect.
Still got some work to be done getting used to actually running real fast, yrs of running on grass does not compair to running on tartan/mondo. the Feel of what goes through your body is totally different. And the speeds are much faster.

Gym session, felt great. Some of the movements felt real easy.
Overall, 8.5-9 out of 10
I take it you don’t agree with what he’s currently doing? Why not give him some pointers as to what he may be doing or not doing?
If I may chime in, I don’t really see any compound movements in there besides the RDL’s, and the Bench. Why no cleans, deadlifts (regular), or squat? I may have missed something though. Just from observation! You can always add in variations too, ie snatch dead, front squat, bulgarian split squat, incline bench, etc etc… Alot of stuff to choose from.
Remember the body works as one unit, so alot of your isolation exercises may be scrapped until you start getting a bit more efficient with some more basic compound lifts. (tricep pushdowns, bicep curls, wrist curl-- good here and there but can’t be replaced for the ones that are going to benefit most!) Hope I can be of help, best of luck!
am doing basic strength maintance (as strong as i want to be for now). volume and intensity has droped to allow more energy for resuming track.
RDL’s being the exception, i want to improve upon them only, (at the moment)
Arms work, a lot of back work is hindered by arm strength (lack thereoff), Particually bi’s and forearms. + they are only done 30sec recovery and 3sets. And as the arms are improving, back work, and deads work is also improving.
Squats - scrapt them yrs ago, found better translation to track from deads n RDL’s, for me.
Regular Deads - Having a small break from them while i get used to RDL’s and resuming track running. Start them again perhaps SPP2. Have been doing them regulary till about 2months ago.
Bench - i incorporate 3 styles, decline, flat and incline. Rotate them i do.
Back work - One arm rows, seated rows chin ups. rotate them, might include barbell rows next season.
shoulders - military presses and rear shoulder raises - rotate them, but sometimes forget?? or sometimes too fatigued if a good track workout.
Calfs - a must if only for the great stretch a heavy load produces. keeps the calfs loose and flexabile.
