Haha, there may not be another member on this board who can relate to this more than I can. The school I’m at has three connected hallways, the longest being 40m, and the other two roughly 30m in length. With that said, here are some things I do, would do, and am considering trying:
Mon. – accel work on rollout track
QUESTION: I’ve actually done this for years on the regular hallways surface, with just using their trainers. I rarely get many shin injuries on my team (aside from the nagging little pains that all girls seem to get, no matter what you do or don’t do with them). Injuries aside, can speed be developed AT ALL by doing this? If not, what kind of training are they getting from it?
Tues. – tempo work/GS work, etc
Wed. – Speed Endurance work (80-150m)
I can get the gym once, maybe twice/week to run on the basketball court. Can this be done effectively using trainers?
Thurs. – see Tuesday
Fri. – Special Endurance work (150-400m)
See Wednesday for comments. Same question applies.
This is what I normally do. How effective can this be? Thoughts?
Also, here is something I am considering for this upcoming season. The situation at my high school is very similar to what Mike suggested in his mock scenario. There is a 300m indoor track about an hour away that is available twice/week to run on. This is what I am considering:
Mon. – change the start day of our training week. This is our “Sunday”, so day off
Tues. – drive to indoor track for workout (accel work for short sprinters, SE work for long sprinters (150-300m))
Wed. – Extensive Tempo/circuits/technical work in the school hallways or in the gym
Thurs. – drive to indoor track for workout (speed endurance work (80-150m))
Fri. – see Tuesday
Sat. – since this is usually a meet day, either use the meet as a training day, or if the athlete is not competing, have them come to the meet to do a workout on the track either before the meet begins or after the meet is over.
Sun. – This is our “Saturday”, so day off.
