    Feeling excited and ready to test tomm... It's all about establishing a baseline and going from there.

    Week 4: Deload/Test
    Monday:
    Warmup B
    Test 30's (happy with the results)
    SLJ+Triple jump (not good - about 6inches less then the first block last year)
    Bench press 3x5 (90% of 10rm)
    Back squats 3x5
    Db floor press 2x10
    Db walking lunge 2x10

    Cooldown: skip/walk 5mins


    No great news to report but I hit the time range I wanted to hit this block - same exact time I ran in the first block of last year training. I ran 7x30 but only got valid times on 4 of them the other 3 had issues with the touch pad. The track was so hot today I had trouble keeping the touch pad cool. Overall, I established the baseline now it's time to work. Some how I was 4lbs lighter today - I either lost some serious weight over the weekend or lost some water weight on the hot track.

    Over 2hrs at the track today..

    Upcoming block:

    Mon: Contrast accel work 20-30m (increasing vol slightly this block), Throws, push wts

    Tue: Tempo

    Wed: Pull wts

    Fri: Accel work 20-30m various positions, jumps up hill, push wts

    Sat: Fitness day

    Tuesday:
    Warmup Jr
    8x100
    Abs x100

    Second grass tempo session - felt much better then it did last Tuesday I think because I was more comfortable with my surrounds etc. My hips were sore from the timed 30's yesterday very similar to how I felt about a month ago with the 10m hill sprints.

    Have you ever had any issues with grass tempo aggravating lower back?

    I cut my volume to 1000-1200 but man the unevenness of most grass seems to crush me. I've seemed to have had this problem before.

    Thinking about just doing 600-800 on track.

    Not sure if it was tempo or the overall training back then. I would strongly recommend decreasing the running speed and maybe using situps/pushups as your rest intervals on uneven grass. Stride 100 - 25 situps - Stride 100 - 10 pushups etc.

    My tempo volume will go up 200m every 4 weeks.

    Block 1: 2x4x100
    Block 2: 2x5x100
    Block 3: 2x6x100
    Block 4: 2x7x100
    Block 5: 6x150 r 2-3m on track

    Re: RB34 Training Journal

    Couple things I want to talk about....

    Last year while sprinting I weighed about 185lbs this year I'm about 192-195lbs so the times are even better with the additional weight. I also think the 2 days of just sled/hill runs don't do much for me anymore because I'm close to my genetic potential at my age. A more beginner sprinter would get a lot more from those runs then an elite runner - I'm not saying I'm elite (world class runner) but for my age and genetic ceiling I'm closer to my max potential. The sled/hill runs for me at this point serve one purpose - developing special work capacity outside of that not much more. The real gains will come from the faster unresisted accel runs!!!!

    That's a good idea, reducing the speed of them.

    I remember you mentioning HICT, I like to do that as well. Moderate height step ups.

    I haven't done any HICT while training for track because I have found a lot of repetitive junk volume (jump circuits, gs circuits, running a's, high rep abs etc) can cause a lot of issues with knees, lower back, and hips etc unless you get regular therapy. If you wanted to do HICT I'll start with the bike before trying stepups or lunges.

    Re: RB34 Training Journal

    Thursday: 150
    Warmup S
    Sled: 5x30
    MB x3 (ohb, blf, height)
    Deadlift 3x5
    Rdl 2x10
    Incline 2x10
    Military press 2x10

    Had to move Friday session up one day because I have a social to attend Friday evening. This was probably my best Friday session, I'll rest tomorrow and do a normal fitness session Saturday morning. Screwed up my sets and reps on the incline - no big deal it was easy work.
