Reply To: Training for 7 Events in 6 hours
I wonder, in the 10-hr week, did you limit practices to 2 sets? What did you do with the rest of the time? I guess 10 hours = 5x 2hr practice?
We have 12 hrs/week (6x2hr) and for 2-hr practices we do 3 sets + 1 skill or 50’s set. Up until now we did a general build-up (each 100m 3x per week, 400m 3xweek and a few times 200m).
But I’m cutting this down a bit, because the kids seem too tired. We start preparing for the first big meet (in 7 weeks) and the goal is to do less sets/week but really focus on their best events and produce more volume/quality per set. I hope that turns out well.
