BACK IN THE DAY

NC Endurance (from a long time ago) hitting of their "elbows down and back" drill.



FOOTHILL COMMUNITY COLLEGE TRACK
MONDAY, AUG-10, 5:30 TO 7:00PM



Intermediate & Long Distance Workouts
Part 1:
100 jog, 1000 run, 100m jog
Rest 1min
100 jog, 800 run, 100m jog
Rest 1min
100 jog, 600 run, 100m jog
Rest 1min
100 jog, 400 run, 100m jog
Rest 1min
100 jog, 200 run, 100m jog
Rest 3min

Part 2:
5x (60m sprint, 340m recovery jog) w/ 10sec rest b/t reps (to set up start).

Total:  6000m

Workout Details:  Target your opening 1000m pace around ~40-45sec slower than your 1 mile PR pace.  Each "run" interval should get slightly faster that this pace because of the reduced interval distance.   The focus on the Part 2 sprint is the drive, acceleration, sprint for 60m as well as your ability to recover during an active recovery.

Question:  Is your Part 1 jog pace the same as your Part 2 jog pace?

Steph Hammerman hitting a mile for time at the 2015 CrossFit Games



Foothill Community College Track
Wednesday, Aug-5, 5:30 to 7:00pm


Intermediate & Long Distance Workout
9 rounds:  200m jog, 300m run (at you mile PR pace), 100m walk
No rest b/t rounds
Total:  5400m

Workout Details:  This workout has a little bit of everything.  The 200m jog time and 100m walk time should take the same time as the 300m run.  As example, if your mile PR is 5:20 then your 300m time  should be 60sec.  Which means that your 200m jog time = 60sec and your 100m walk time = 60sec.

Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir

Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir, 2015 CrossFit Games Champion, performed 30 rounds
of this workout at a sub-46sec pace for every ON and OFF interval.  


LOS ALTOS HIGH SCHOOL TRACK
MONDAY, AUG-3, 5:30 TO 7:00PM



Intermediate Distance Workouts
12 rounds:  200m ON:  100m OFF

Long Distance Workouts
15 rounds:  200m ON:  100m OFF



Workout Details: I will provide target times for every athlete on the track.  The ON time is the same as the OFF time.  Everyone will have the same level of intensity (assuming that their 6min max effort times are accurate). 

Start the workout by running 200m within the provided ON time. Jog 100m within the OFF time. The goal is to complete a 12 rounds for intermediate and 15 rounds for long at the referenced paces. 

The first few rounds will be easy and the pace should be very controlled.  Except this workout to get rough.  You must stop the workout once you fail to hit the target pace/distance. Record number of completed rounds.   The only recovery is during the 100m OFF jog.

Part 2: 5 rounds:

6x Wall Kisses: Lay on ground, on back, feet touch the wall, arm stretched overhead, 10-12lb (should be light) wall ball in hands. Quickly bending at waist, while holding torso and arms in same position, and throw ball as high as possible against wall. Ball should just kiss wall. Catch ball. Bring ball back overhead and touch ball to ground (that’s 1rep)

9x Jumping push-ups onto wall ball (Scale: 45lb plate jumps or plate walks): Start in push-up/plank position with ball under chest and b/t arms. Jump up with hands and bring hand onto side/top of ball & then back to ground (that’s 1rep). Don’t worry about height you’re reaching on ball. Be quick.

12x Wall ball bench push press: Lay on wall ball between your shoulder blades (or lay back on bench). Use 20/14lb ball. While on your back (on ball), bring 20/14lb ball to your chest, push ball aggressively, ball should get slightly airborne (ball is too heavy if its not getting air), catch ball, reset with ball at chest (that’s 1rep). Be quick!!

15x Standing push passes against wall.  Stand 3 feet from wall, push ball from chest, parallel to floor, to the wall, catch ball as it comes off wall, repeat 14 more times.

OVER THE TOP

Julie Foucher

Foothill Community College Track
Wednesday, Apr-8, 5:30 to 7:00pm



Intermediate and Long Distance Workout
(600m, 75sec rest, 200m),
Rest 5min (includes a 200m easy jog)
(500m, 75sec rest, 200m),
Rest 5min (includes a 200m easy jog)
(400m, 75sec rest, 200m),
Rest 5min (includes a 200m easy jog)
(300m, 75sec rest, 200m),
Rest 5min (includes a 200m easy jog)
(200m, 75sec rest 200m)
Total: 3800m

Workout Details: This is fast workout that will push your capacity at a sub-1000m PR pace. The hardest part of this workout is the 700m 2nd round. Expect the fatigue to stack from round to round. However, find some comfort knowing the volume from round to round gets shorter and shorter. Plus, you're getting a crap load of rest b/t rounds. As noted, the 5min rest b/t rounds includes a 200m easy recovery jog.

Workout Pacing: The pace for the opening interval (600, 500, 400, 300, 200) is the same for all 5 rounds. In addition, the pace for the closing 200m interval is the same for all 5 rounds. The opening interval is fast. The closing interval is faster.

The Champ:  After & Before


Foothill Community College Track
Wednesday, Mar-4, 5:30 to 7:00pm

Workout Details:  This is 21min of running.  The pace from 12min to 5min to 1min will get progressively faster.  Each athlete will have a total of 6min of rest to use anywhere within the workout. The rest should be conserved and does not need to be used prior to the last 1min interval.  I will provide each athlete their target 200m times for each time period.  The purpose of this workout is athlete knowledge.  Every athlete must learn how to assess a workout based on their ability.  Knowledge will bring confidence.  Creating confidence within an athlete is my most important role.

NCE

Back in the beginning when I was sorting out my endurance training methodology for CrossFit athletes.


Foothill Community College Track

Wednesday, Feb-11, 5:30 to 7:00pm



Intermediate & Long Distance Workout
100m, 10sec rest, 300m, 3min rest

300m, 30sec rest, 300m, 3min rest
400m, 40sec rest, 300m, 3min rest
500m, 50sec rest, 300m, 3min rest
600m, 60sec rest, 300m, 3min rest
Total:  3900m

Workout Details:  The intensity and anxiety of this workout builds all the way to the very end.  That final 600/300 is the core of this workout.  This workout has 2 goals.  The first goal is to target a perceived exertion intensity of 90-92% during all the opening round intervals.   This means that your 100m to 600m intervals need to have a PE of 90-92%.  The second goal is to hit the same time for every round ending 300m interval.  You can pick the pace but your coach reserve the right to make some final adjustments - just in case...  :)
