I’m starting this to keep track of my progression and also to have you people post ur comments. I am a Junior at Green Hope High School in Cary, North Carolina. I focus primarily on the mile and and working towards a fast 800 meter time by June which will be my peak season. Thusfar my mile pr is 4:24. Last year i ran a 1:58 and 1:57 relay splits in the 4×800. I have not yet run faster than that this in the 800 as this year we are itterating the strength phase of training to ensure a late and strong peak season. We began strenth work in early indoor with 2x12minute above tempo or 3x8minute above tempo. We continue to do similar strength workouts but have recently incorporated some quicker workouts such as an all out 300 to 6- 200’s at 30 seconds with only 30 second recoveries. We have also done many repeat 1000’s, 600’s, and things of that nature. I just wanted to bring you up to speed on the training thusfar.
Next race: Saturday, the Bojangles Invitational in Apex, NC
Goal: Run close to or under 4:20
