Re: NB Nationals-Drew update

I too, was in NC for an incredible 3 day display of Track and field and was blown away by Drew's performance.  My distance athlete decided not to compete ( mentally done) so we brought a handful of sprinters.  It was awesome to see Josette compete as well, it kinda seems like I know the two of them ...

Re: Week training when trying to break course record but peak race 1 month away.

I have learned more on this site in the last 5 months, than the past 15 years via coaching clinics, magazines books, etc...truthfully cannot even recall how I stumbled upon the site, although it was definitely " by accident" and it's changed my entire outlook on the process.  I am also appreciative ...

Re: Week training when trying to break course record but peak race 1 month away.

B7- hope that all is going well on your athletes journey towards states.  I enjoy incorporating combo workouts and the workout above intrigues me.  Does she take standing rests or slow jogs? Equal recovery to interval or increase recovery slightly as reps quicken?

Pre-race adjustments due to unusually warm temps

We are in the midst of a strong "late" summer push with temps in the mid/upper 70's to low 80's.  In regards to our warm up...do we shorten it?  Extend the down time between warmup and race?? Essentially, we have done a ten minute run + some race pace efforts with equal rest, then taken 15 minutes t...

Pre-race warmup and routine to fire on all cylinders!

With the first race of the season about 48 hours away, and this being the first full season applying Tinmans training principles, I am looking for input regarding proper warmup protocols for optimal performance. In recent years, we have generally begun our warmup about 50 minutes from the gun.  A 10...

Re: Summer miles...

I would say on average we have about 1/3 that runs track and trains year round, about 1/3 of our program plays soccer in the spring, and 1/3 are new- either incoming freshman, kids that get cut from other fall sports, or kids simply wanting to be a part of a team. My top girl is a speedster, 1600, 8...

Summer miles...

With the transition to the fall cross country season taking place, I am hoping to strike up some quality banter about summer mileage.  Where are your programs headed?  Do you emphasize miles, minutes or both?  How much flexibility do you have amongst your athletes?  We generally have three groups ba...

Re: Thoughts on 1600/800 State finals week...

Thanks for the advice!  And thank you to all for your willingness to give  additional assistance.  I am trying to read back through as many old posts as possible to increase my knowledge to help our athletes. Our gal was seeded 9th yesterday at a lifetime best 5:00, which was a 6 second drop at our ...

Re: Thoughts on 1600/800 State finals week...

Our athlete ran the 3200 today in her last race prior to shifting back to the 1600/800 combo at state's next weekend.  She ran an 11:10 earlier in the season and went 10:47 today.  We were looking for a nice strength race for her, as well as giving her a mental break from her normal race schedule. S...

Thoughts on 1600/800 State finals week...

As mentioned, I stumbled across this site over the weekend and am beyond impressed with the dialogue, training suggestions and willingness to share.  No secrets! I have a 5:00/2:17 female who has qualifed for both next weekend at our state finals.  She's a moderate mileage kid in season(30-35ish), e...

Re: Big time personal best from my miler!

This question to BURN7....I also like your tempo/acceleration workout.  What was the recovery time between speed bouts?  Jog back to start? 2x the time running?

Re: Big time personal best from my miler!

I happened to stumble upon this site today, by accident.  How impressive for coaches, athletes and anyone simply wanting to learn about effectively training.  I do have a female athlete who is a 5 minute miler, 2:16 half and a low 11 2-miler although she's only run it once this spring. Our state mee...
