On Charlie’s short to long slide, why does the special endurance top out at 60m? Is the “Phase I speed progression - short to Long” slide intended to be a SPP phase BEFORE the actual competition phase?
When would I add Special Endurance runs of 150 to 200m?
Correct me if I am wrong, but special endurance is usually 200m upwards and 150-200m is speed endurance II. What graph or reference did you get the information from? Check “Training for Speed” for a definitive answer.
-Volume of work ( number repetitions and sets)
-Intensity (50%, 75%, speed variations, etc)
-Time of rest (seconds, minutes hours!)
-start procedure (blocks, stand, fly, signal, etc)
-ground surface (track, grass, sand, downhill, uphill, etc)
technical advice (sprinting, step frequency, boundings, skipping, etc…)
-weather conditions (wind, temperature, etc)
-alone or with partner(s)
-form of the athlete at the moment of practice
All this changes the type of run. With 1 training distance you can make thousands of different workouts. Multiple it by the number of possibel distance and your runner will never make them all in his poor life!
WOW WOW WOW, guys if you have not got the new material then… get it because its a revelation. The special endurance runs for phase I consist of just 60m runs with incomplete rest. The speed work has very very long recovery. No wonder CFs athlete DOMINATED. The spec end runs over 60m are similar to P Minnea’s training.
The classic special endurance runs we all know about ie 2x200m etc etc, DO NOT feature in the short-to-long progression that I assume Ben would have done prior to indoors. The Long-to-short utilises both spec endurance I and II the kind of training Tony Sharpe would have done I assume.
If you have the GPP DVD and want details of track work for the SPP then buy the Vancouver DVD. I may add that I have not recieved the DVD yet but have downloaded the tables and graphs for the DVD. Frankly you would never have come up with this sort of training for the SPP on your own in a million years.
Another interesting piece of info is the acc distances you need to work to achieve optimal results for a given distance. This in itself is new material for many. Though CF has alluded to it and talked about it, but when you see the graph things will fall into place. Looking forward to the DVD.
Morta your query is is valid, I only understood what you meant after looking at the graphs.
Morta, I am assuming that the phase I Short-to-long would have been done before competition. You raise a valid point about special endurance over 60m. I think only one man and his associates can answer your question definitively lets wait and see.
I agree! Charlie (or anybody else), in the columns headed strength endurance, on both the short to long, and long to short progressions, what are these “strength endurance runs”? I’m guessing they are short/very short recovery, 100% runs is this correct? Thanks
