Quik, your plan seems a lot like Clyde Hart. He talks about 200s progressing through the season from, say, 12@32, to 10@30 to 8@28, 7@27, etc. all the way down to 5@25, even 4@24 for his best runners. For his guys, it's always the number of reps plus 20 equals the target time. (Of course, all of his guys run under 21, so the target times have to be adjusted for who you're working with. Rest stays constant at 2 mins.
That is where I got the idea from and adapted it into my system. Hart places more focus on it though throughout the year. I however just got sick of doing a shitload of slow extensive tempo work and needed an alternative between my harder days which wouldn't burn me out and after experimenting with the 200's I found it fit well into my program allowed me to recover but at the same time improved my fitness more than classical extensive tempo.
hey quik do you think those 6×200 help with your short races 55-60m and lj or geared towards your 100-200?
