    Re: CF Approach in Mid-Distance Events

    James,
    Point well taken and your example which used percentages seems like a good way to go. In your example you had the athlete going through the 600 in 1:35point. The obvious is that it's...

    Re: CF Approach in Mid-Distance Events

    I haven't studied MD training a lot, hence my questions. I'm not comfortable with using the greatest 800 runner in history as a model for race distribution. Obviously his 400 PR would be a bit lower...

    Re: CF Approach in Mid-Distance Events

    James,

    Was hoping you might chime in here. The section on tempo training in your book was one source of my wondering if there may be slightly different ways to train middle distance runners with...

    Re: CF Approach in Mid-Distance Events

    Thanks. Any general thoughts on race distribution? Does 400m PR or ability guide you in setting things up?

    Re: CF Approach in Mid-Distance Events

    Thanks for the replies. The athlete discussed is 16 years old and is a 2:17-2:19 800m runner. She is presently healthy and in relatively good shape. By no means is she overweight, out of shape or...

    CF Approach in Mid-Distance Events

    I recently began working with a HS middle distance ( 800-1000 ) girl. She's an athlete that's had to deal will consistent injuries, the majority of which have been minor and stem from a blend of...
  9. Re: Progressions into High Intensity Sprint Training

    I'll second that...it's a great tool to have.

    My comment about the length of tempo was from a risk reduction standpoint. I figure to have a limit on length of run might keep someone returning...
  10. Re: Progressions into High Intensity Sprint Training

    James,
    Thanks for starting this thread and posting some great thoughts. I was a bit surprised to see the length of tempo runs start off in the 400-600m range. Curious to know how the total volume...

    Does this come under Charlie's improve one point on the curve improve all points on the curve?

    Re: Experiment in progress.

    James,
    Can you expand a bit on the ext/hill/sled to int/hill/sled. Are those 3 diff sessions? Also, any thoughts on the weight of the sled for 60-100m? I know it depends on many factors but general...

    Re: Rio men's 200m

    Makes one wonder at times just how far we've really come in terms of the upper limits of human performance.

    I'd be lying if I said I didn't think of Ben Johnson while watching the 100 in Rio. The...

    What might Charlie have thought of wickets? Throw them in the same heap as stick drills?

    With so much going on in the course of a week it's hard to calculate how much esoteric exercises help or...

    Not sure of the origins but thought Oregon's Curtis Taylor was a fan of the two knees down? Maybe picked it up from Tony Wells?

  23. Re: Hannah Cunliffe makes front page Seattle Times, and video

    Not sure if it was a typo but HC ran 10.99 not 11.99. To grooster's point, in a way, she was able to progress from running high 11's earlier in her career to now running sub 11 without fully cleaning...
