Not quite the plan I had hoped. I recorded an utterly brilliant 5 minute workout overview and analysis this morning. Little did I know that the app I have used for years no longer allows exports without a whopping subscription.
My workaround is four different 3 second videos on YouTube.
The plan for this week is 4 – 6 repetitions of 400m.
If you get it right, then four should be sufficient.
The coaching focus is on power development, using ‘bounding’.
Bounding is a drill that involves you taking longer than usual strides with powerful arms movements. You want to feel that your landing is strong, yet light, with a spring in your step.
15 – 20 minutes easy jogging, followed by these 4 drills:
Drill 1 – High Knees. 4 sets of 10 seconds with 20 sec rest
Drill 2 – Skipping. 4 sets of 10 seconds with 20 sec rest
Drill 3 – Long Skipping. 4 sets of 10 seconds with 20 sec rest
Drill 4 – Bounding. 10 sets of 6 strides with 30 sec rest
Feeling very nicely warmed up now? Good. The main set seems short BUT that is because it should be tiring.
The Main Set
4 X 400m at 5k pace with 2 minutes rest. However, the final 100m of each rep is to be done as bounding. Feeling really powerful as you start to pick up the effort, it will be a challenge to maintain the concentration.
Stay focused, and do your best.
