We have done a lot of speed sessions over the past 3 weeks but, I am glad to say that, given the break from the track, we have avoided injuries.
Todays session is going to be a 400s repeat session to work on some GPP (General Physical Preparedness). It will be tough on our cardio system but allow us to recover and complete speed session on Thursday.
The middle distance group will be in clover as we put the middle distance and sprint groups together.
Please bring a stopwatch to ensure you are hitting the correct time per each 100 mtrs.
We are aiming for 70% of race time = See race pace sheet and download and keep same. You amend the times in yellow to your pb for training paces. I have also copied some of the times below for your convenience.
50 secs PB = 68.59 secs or 17.15 per each 100 mtrs
54 secs PB = 74.07 secs or 18.52 per each 100 mtrs
56 secs PB = 76.82 secs or 19.20 per each 100 mtrs
58 secs PB = 79.56 secs or 19.89 per each 100 mtrs
60 secs PB = 82.30 secs or 20.58 per each 100 mtrs
64 secs PB = 87.79 secs or 21.95 per each 100 mtrs
