DISH RUN



Saturday, Feb-21, 10:30am

Coach Ryan has offered to run an informal class at the Stanford Dish.  He will be at the Alpine Road entrance near Webb Ranch in Menlo Park (about 400m from Hwy 280/Alpine Rd exit) at 10:30am.  

If you have never run the dish, now is your chance with a seasoned dish veteran.  The dish starts with a 1 mile hill climb and then mostly rolls up and down with the occasional flat section.  He has a great workout planned.  I hope you can join him!!

TOES OUT, IN, UP, DOWN



We all know this drill.  :)

No rest b/t 400m & 100m
2min rest b/t rounds

Workout Details:
"This is a compound set workout. Compound sets are more advanced workouts that are made up of two different distances and paces that you perform with no recovery between (roll right into it). You would take some recovery between each set, but no recovery between the components of each set. Compound sets are very good race specific interval training workouts. We will perform Part 2 on Monday." - Coach Joey


Workout Pacing:
400 meters at Mile PR pace
100 meters at sprint pace (90+% PE).

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
200m, 20sec 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...  :)

A VARIETY OF DAMAGE



FOOTHILL COMMUNITY COLLEGE TRACK

WEDNESDAY, FEB-4, 5:30PM TO 7:00PM


Intermediate Distance Workout
5 rounds
200m hard, 100m jog, 100m finishing kick
4min rest b/t rounds

Long Distance Workout
5 rounds
300m hard, 100m jog, 100m finishing kick
4min rest b/t rounds

Workout Details:  Lots of rest for this workout so let's push the tempo.  We should all know our "hard" 200m or 300m target times.  If not, I will provide each athlete their personalized target (just keeping everyone honest).  Let's hit that time, go straight into a 100m jog, and end with a 100m kick to develop that strong finish.
