Sprint/Hurdles workouts for the week of 3/23

Remember you can adapt these to workouts to your situation.  Hurdlers, for the duration of distance learning, if you have a place at your home you can take a couple hurdles home to keep practicing hurdling technique.  They will need to come back at the end so we have enough for practice.  Look for occasional drills videos as well.

Distance Workouts for the week of March 23

This week is an opportunity to build up base. So doubles are a good idea.  If you were just getting started don't do the second runs just yet. Your two runs should be in the morning and the afternoon in whichever order makes the most sense for you.  Make sure you are safe on your runs. The distances are for the varsity boys, so cut down to the appropriate mileage level for you.

Make sure you are getting adequately warmed up especially before hard efforts.  Take care of your legs with stretching and rolling. 

Monday 30 minute recovery run
8 mile run with hills hard effort
do strength including bands

Tuesday 30 minute recovery run
6 mile easy effort turn

Wednesday 0 minute recovery run
8 mile run  hard effort
do strength including bands

Thursday 30 minute recovery run
tempo run

Friday 30 minute recovery run
6 mile easy effort run

Saturday 70 minute run

Hurdle Drills

Husky Hurdlers, I hope you're finding time to work hurdles into your workouts.  Here's a useful extension of the lead leg over the hurdle and against the wall drill we do sometimes.  Try it!

You've seen most of these drills before.  (The white tape on the line between lanes 3 and 4 (?) are 10 meters--"ten steps"--apart.)  There are also some new ones you should try.  A couple of notes:
  1.  Don't EVER go lead or trail leg over a hurdle in the wrong direction.  Sheesh, that's a good way to hurt yourself, even in a drill.  (What they call "Crazy Legs" doesn't matter because you're not traveling perpendicular to the hurdle.)
  2.   Notice how almost all of these O'Neill hurdlers keep their shoulders really square to the hurdle and how they work on their arms all the time, no matter what they're doing.  Both of these things help all of them to be better hurdlers.
  3.   Really try to 3-step when you're working on rhythm drills (hurdles 10 meters apart).

3/16 - 3/21 workout schedules for all event groups

We will be posting workout schedules for you to try to keep up with while we are out of school.  Keep working out so that we will be ready when meets are allowed to resume.  The coaches will not be able to run practices and groups need to stay small so do the best you can.  If you can't make it to the track, do something as close to the workout as you can in your own neighborhood.  Stay safe above all else.
