-now if that looks ok, where would resisted runs(sled or isorobic) be put in.
-if im training outdoors would a short-long or long to short in spp1 be better, i will be concentrating on running a super fast 100 and dont really mind how i go inthe 200m and will not race many anyways.
-is spp2 based on the template on the forum review
-is the comp phase similar to the template on the forum review or is there is big difference
-and what would happen if i dont have a comp in august
your breakdown looks ok but really no need to put a GPP in after the 1st competition. if anything just have an initial longer GPP. Hit your SPP1, compete, recovery and transition, SPP2, compete, recovery and transition.
if you don’t compete in August then if need to make the GPP longer and then into the SPP’s. Just so you have somewhat of a peak (not a true peak) but some type of peak, plan on mimicking a competition with timing on a certain day or something like that.
Then roll into your SPP2 and finally competition.
When to use the resisted runs…during the GPP and initial stages of SPP1.
A short to long will be better from the information you have given.
Not sure about the questions referring to the forum review because I have not seen it.
yeh it is interesting.
our season runs from oct-feb, so with the layout above i was thinking of doing a double periodization with the comp in august. but i may do a triple now as the summer season is so long.
in regards to the gpp my plane was not to go to far into the gpp phase as quoated by many on here ‘why try and re-invent the wheel each year’ meaning i want to keep progressing from the previous years training.
do other agree??? also what would your plan be for an australian season if you wanted to either do a double or triple periodization.
In canada during the winter I don’t think you have much choice but to run indoors and since this ties in with thier SPP1 I would say short to long works well.
In Austrailia I believe the year is the otherway around with SPP1 in summer and SPP2 going into winter? :rolleyes:
If this is the case, while it is probably a good idea to do Short to Long anyway, perhaps it might make sense to do more longer special endurance during SPP1 or at least from half way through SPP1 to half way through SPP2 (where the weather is nice enough to makes it possible). I really don’t know what I am talking about with respect to the weather but I’m sure some Ozzys on here can let me know.
It makes me wonder whether you could do a strange thing like ramp up ramp down in distance e.g. distances move short to long to short again before main season peak (european summer major champs). Comments?
I was talking to one of Oz’s main sprint coaches recently and he said that the weather and the periodisation of the year caused real headaches for Austrailians who need to qualify in summer (march) for major world level champs held in July-Sep by which time they were “out of shape” and found it hard to peak.
As for GPP after 1st comp I would keep it there but make it only small (2 weeks?) to allow the body to recover a bit - remember to take a week or so off with active recovery after the main competition season.
would something like what was posted from FLOATS about doing 90’s instead 60’s be better suited for aussies who have to train outdoors all year round, as there are no indoor tracks.
could tc or any others give me what they thing would be a good layout, taking note that the season is usually OCT-FEB and then considering that i may go up north to run race’s in July-August as the weather is still hot there in winter.
if you think my layout would work well, then could we try and discuss how to plan my training mainly distance’s.
also i jsut wont to double check that SPP2 is based on the weekly training plan on the forum review???
i was thinkng of going to QLD in august to run in there winter series, unfortunatly for me i was very keen to get my diploma so ive finished my studies now, so im not eligible for uni games.
my plan so far was to go something like this.
may GPP -4weeks
june and july SPP1 (short-long, using the vancovour template) 8Weeks
september GPP2 2-4weeks
oct+nov 8weeks-spp2(using the forum review template)
