Now that my spring track season is over. I am once again disapointed in the outcome.
I went from soph pr's:
To my Junior pr's of:
LJ- 19' 2"
My main event being the 400m hurdles, thats what i'm trying to become the best at. I know these marks could have been much better and I dont want the same thing to happen to me my senior year.
Over the summer of my soph and junior year I lifted a little in the gym and did some distance runs, in the fall i played soccer, and in the winter i played hockey. Next year I am planing on quiting those sports and concentrating on track. Now all i need is a summer training program and some help on getting fast. I must first start by saying that my season ended this year very badly. I was at the state meet and i fell in the 400hurdles and it turns out i have a stress fracture on my foot, so i cant run for like 3 weeks:splat:. I have been searching these forums for a while and i have seen all these terms like acc. dev., MaxV etc. I have never heard of these before and i am very intrested in learning about them. My previous training this last track season was, distance running early mixed with things like 5×500's, the mid season was mainly hurdle work over the 110h's and 400h's with some drills such as 6×200's or 10×100's. the end of the season was a lot of race preperation, like 2x over the first 5 hurdles. Other info you might need: I'm 6'3" 180lbs 16 years old and definitly done growing.
Oh and btw the reason im putting this in the sprint section is because i need advice on getting fast, and these sprinting forums seem to get a lot of attention. Help me with my summer and fall training. I never ran XC or indoor track. But i'm thinking of treating xc as an outdoor track season preparing me for indoor in which i will run the hurdles, 200's, 400's, 600's, and 800's. Any help would be greatly appretiated.
