My sprint workouts training plan, as a Masters Athlete and Sprints Coach I have to ensure the programme works! I have used myself as a test subject every year and also learn from what I have done before, changing my plans constantly not only from each year but within each cycle.
I love to learn as much as I can when it comes to Athletics and mostly on how to improve the sprint events. And so this year I am revisting old lessons and will be adapting my training throughout the winter.
Lately I am having a real kick on podcasts and loving what’s been done by Joel Smith over at Just Fly Sports and I am now going back through all the podcasts again! Along with Vern Gambettas podcasts, GAIN cast and of course the ones being produced by ALTIS.
There of course a few of the speakers I keep coming back to, Chris Korfist being one of them, he owns Slow Guy Speed School and definitely worth a look at what he does for sprint workouts.
All this learning help cement a training philosophy and adjust where you feel fit, not because you’re being told to but help challenge what you believe, I really do believe that in order to dismiss something you need to learn it and understand it and make your call from there!
Of course id be amiss to ignore one of my personal biggest influences, the work undertaken by Mike Hurst (KK) with the concurrent philosophy that really changed the way I think about training, especially the 400m
Anyway, as a way of keeping myself on the straight and narrow, here is the training phase I have just completed. My next block which takes me to New Years, is a focus on Top Speed improvement, so take a look at my sprint workoutsGodiva Marshall Sprints 2019 SPP Part 1
