    I am under the impression that S-L and L-S refers to the speed endurance and special endurance part of the program.

    With S-L you start with shorter distances and work your way up, whereas with L-S you start out with relatively long special endurance runs (in addition to some accel work) and work your way down in distance from there.

    S-L and L-S is not really referring to the total volume of work per week.

    The program that the OP posted looks to be S-L, as is Charlie's one that I used as an example.

    Also, even with the example L-S program in the Vancouver download, the total weekly volume starts out high and is reduced as SPP progresses.

    I only just realized how old this thread is.

    mreoyn, How did the plan work out for you?

    Yea this is old... funny to look back on it

    Hard to say exactly how I did because I didn't get to run any meets right afterwards or anything. I think I was way too afraid of volume and shouldn't have run 10 and 20m (as the meat of some workouts) in SPP after going through a GPP phase!

    you learn and grow from each training year. going back in time what are some things you would do diff?

    Yep, thats for sure. The biggest thing I would have done differently would be to lengthen the sprint reps. You're only gonna improve your 0-20m time so much and after that what about the other 80% of the race (or 90% if we're talking about the 2). Since this was in the spring I would have also entered any meets I could since I think beginners, like myself, can get a lot out of meet experience and racing for some SE work.

    Probably not the best set up in the world, same shit 3/wk, but not too bad really... it was simple and fairly effective. I think I bumped my 4x4 fsq up by like 15-20lbs during that time period.

    i made the same mistake man.

Correct me if I am wrong. Is this standard throughout the higher level sprinters. I assume, the higher level athletes can rely on less tempo as their overall conditioning is more in place, hence the shorter GPP. Unless, the contrary is true, and because they have used a shorter GPP, they keep the tempo volume up for slightly longer to aid the general conditioning. As you can see, I am confused, and find this quite overwhelming, especially when trying to put this into a programme! How about come the competition period, how does the tempo fit in here. What is the recommended volume per session and per week. I have the GPP download, and that gives the example of 2200m for that particular session, but I would be keen to learn how this develops later on into the training year.
    Bump on this question...I'd be interested to know about tempo volumes during the SPP...Currently I'm doing 2000m on a Tuesday and Thursday (big tempo circuit and 200mx10r respectively) and then on the saturday tempo dropping it down to 1600 (CF Big Circuit with just 100's) making the saturday a slightly easier day.

    The higher the level of a sprinter, perhaps the more the activities becomes anti-circulatory and probably at a lower volume at that intensity zone. Therefore, tempo is still needed to a great extent.
