Speed Drill Sets and Sprint Sets

Speed Workouts

S1       Straights and Curves: Sprint / stride the straightaway on the track and jog / walk the curves. 2-4 laps

S2       Ladder: 100M (100M), 200M (200M), 300M (100M), 200M (200M), 100M.  Do the ladder X2 for a more challenging workout.

S3       Progression Run: Run one lap on the track, start at an easy jog pace, and gradually speed up throughout the lap until you finish the last 50M at a sprint / very fast pace. Use this to feel your form shift as you accelerate and maintain control of your form. Do 3 or 4 reps with full rest in between.

S4       200M Reps: 200M (200M). Do as many as fit your plan. Typically 5-12.

Depending on your goals or experience level, what you select will be different. It is not a bad thing to have consecutive days of speed, just don’t do consecutive hard days. Depending on your training phase, work some speed in at least once a week and up to three times a week. These are just some examples. Make your own sets of drills and speed based on your training and your schedule.

Examples:

Monday: D1, Tuesday: D3 + S2, Friday: D4

Tuesday: D1 + S4, Thursday: D4
