If the slowest kid gets eliminated, how does he get better? He or she will only run one lap.

get two plastic water bottles and whoever has the bottle is the fox, everyone else is a hound. whichever hound catches the fox, becomes the new fox and takes the bottle. give him/her 20 seconds to go off and get a lead. add some spice to it by going around and picking up a bottle from the recycling bins, you will eventually get tagged but by the end 15 bottles will be in play and its chaotic.
When we play we usually say you cant go in classrooms or bathrooms and you cant go outside. Also you must keep moving, no hiding in a corner.

More of a sprinters workout,but can be done in a gym if you don't have an indoor track:

Wall Smashers. I don't remember where I got this, but can't take credit for creating it myself.

Take your 3 sections of high jump pits. place one at one corner of the gym. On the oppostite corner (diagonal accross the b-ball court) place the 2nd pit section. place the 3rd section of pit at the other end of the gym from the second pit.

Have the athletes line up at the corner of the gym with no mat then sprint a Z pattern through the gym, smashing into the mats at each of the other 3 corners. Have the athletes jog the perimeter of the gym back to the start and do the sprnts again. You can make this a continuous workout by going non stop for a certain period of time, or a more anaerobic workout by letting the athletes rest between each sprint.

Each sprint takes 15-25 seconds depending on the athlete. My sprinters do 10 of these during the early season when the weather is bad.

You want to talk common decency? How about not bumping a six year old thread. Thanks.

Bill Bowerman was a crazily successful track and field coach and founded Nike. This was one of his most famous quotes. Please calm down.
