    First spike - entry level. Second spike - intermediate level. The spike you posted look like a distance spike?

    Do you know the difference between Zoom Rival M, S, and D?

    D: looks like a distance spike
    M: looks like the entry spike i posted
    S: short sprinter

    You would want m or s.

    S: When you throw on the Nike Men’s Zoom Rival S 9, you’ll understand what speed feels like. Own the track — the S 9 is built for events between 60 and 400 meters long, and is also designed for long jump and hurdles.

    M: Designed for versatility, this track spike opens you up to a wide range of events.

    Thanks, Lots of Rival S or Celar 5 options in my size.

    What's standard procedure for warmups? Wear regular runners and then switch to spikes just for your sprints? Do you ever take the spikes out of the shoes?

    I bought the celar5 last week because I purchased I believe the JA last season and each time they made my achilles worst because the plate was so stiff. I was going to get the rival but got a great deal on the celar for $20 and couldn't pass that up.

    I would always leave the spikes in, I remember one session last summer I forgot to put spikes in and they felt like ice skates but I was using very old spikes at that time. I warmup in trainers until I'm ready to start my workouts - some people perform their buildups in spikes but I use trainers.

    How's the fit?
    Does # of spikes matter? Celar has 5 and Rival S has 7, both will be 50-60usd because of shipping.

    Jawku arrived, measuring tape is on it's way ... it's going to look like I know what I'm doing once I get the spikes.

    Few more tempo questions:

    When doing tempo distances longer than 100m, what do you do? Stop at the end of the field, turn around and continue? Turn 90 degrees and run the width of the field? Or run on the track instead of the grass?

    Is it okay to perform higher intensity work before tempos? Today for example, I took yesterday off because it was too hot and I'm going to be off again tomorrow. I was thinking of doing some explosive med ball throws and some jumps before tempos but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to mix different stimuli?

    Once again, I said earlier it's 100% ok esp early on to perform intensive mb throws, and upper body weights on tempo days. I would prefer to keep all explosive jumps on speed days unless you are training a decent jump athlete (they may be able to perform some easy jump circuits etc). Run 100 - U turn - run 100 back. I perform many of my tempo 200 sessions on the track because I'm usually pushing the speed a little more with a little more rest ex 5x200 @ 30 rest 4-5mins. For you at this point in the season tempo 200's on grass with the U turn will work.

    You didn't train because it was too hot??? SMH FYI - never try and make up for a lost training session!!!

    Re: Question Regarding Tempo Work

    Don't mix high intensity and tempo on same day or more specifically least not back to back due to cellular signalling. Sending mixed signals to the body will usually default the training effects towards the endurance character and AMPK activation rather than mTOR. It would blunt the potential beneficial effects of the high intensity training.

    In the beginning of training it's not such a big deal to mix somewhat as CF did but the majority of training should not be mixed high and low intensity in the same session. I'm mostly referring to sprints and tempo.
