    Thanks.
    And it's a good product? Guessing you like it based on the 5 you purchased.

    I use my speed trap 2 most times but haven't had any issues with Jawku. I purchased that many to be able to time flying sprints and various segments of my athletes 40yd dash times.

    What's a speed trap 2? Looks like a golfing device.

    Speaking of flies, what's the proper way to do them? In my last sessions I did 3 reps of 30m slow acceleration into 20m of top speed. 20m didn't feel like long enough as I could have maintained top speed for longer. Always assumed flies were to help work on top end speed and maintaining top end speed.

    I've been doing this lately as an older runner.

    Speed - 400m+
    low int day - boxing drills, bjj drils, upper weights
    Ext tempo - 12x100 or 4x350 + gs circuits, sometimes add 10min more of pool tempo at the end
    low int day
    Speed - 400m+

    etc....

    I do it rolling style but generally get two speed and two ext tempo.

    This has kept the joint issues down significantly.

    Lower weights on your speed day or no lower weights?

    Yeah, on speed days if I do lower weights. Sometimes I skip lower weights. When I do them it’s usually kind of halfassed. Linear progression down to say 3x2-3.

    Re: Question Regarding Tempo Work

    Hey guys, more noob questions. Figured I'll put them here instead of making a new thread.

    I have a Jawku speed on order. To use it properly I will need to be more accurate with my distances. So far I've just been measuring with steps but that won't be consistent enough. How do I read these markers on the track? I don't know what the different colour lines mean.

    And is there a standard calculation for track:grass times? I don't feel inclined to test my 100m on grass, would rather just estimate the 70%

    Thanks
