    Not necessarily- individuals need to concentrate on their strengths, whichever form that might take

    thanks charlie

    you are not wrong about tendon and muscle issues as you get older. what would be your choice of supplements to assist with tendons etc considering my verterin age.

    Charlie for many years I have adopted your methods with my own sprint training and have also applied it with the professional rugby legue players I coach to great success. Now as a veterin due the inability to recover as I once could combined with tendon and muscle issues Ifind I cannot follow up high intensity days with low intensity days. what would you suggest I do in place of tempo. I have been doing some wayer running and cardio eqipment with push ups and sit ups.

    I assume you mean water running- that's a great way to keep the load down on muscle and tendon and works fine as a substitute.

    For sure, I'd try glucosamine and chondroitin along with Omega 3s

    in any masters program, the number of runs must be carefully controlled and will always be lower than what is appropriate for a younger athlete. Even though the younger athlete can create a higher CNS output, it becomes more of a muscular and tendon issue for masters.
    How often would you perform 80's if the athlete is getting SE work from the meets every week, in this case would you stick with 60's only?

    Dumb question, when you say short starts are you talking about 30m block starts or shorter starts 10-20m? Also with acc work is this 30m block starts or 60m runs?
