400 meter training schedule 6/15/2010 9:22PM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
Hey all, I'm a HS coach and we've had very succesful 100/200 kids and 4x100 relays and excellent 800 and 3200 relay kids but haven't been able to put together a group of good 400 runners or 1600 relay. Has anyone seen a good 4, 6 or 8 month training schedule anywhere? Just looking for ideas and obviously a way to fix our coaching problem. Thanks

Coach73,

Your 100/200 kids like (speed endurance), and 800 meters runners (like leg speed). If not you could put together a 4 x 400 at the end of the meet. I have a training program that can develop both. I ran a (47.0) 400, and a (59.5) 500 meters in college. If you put up your e-mail, I will e-mail you back.

The WR has to be faster than 59.5, right? "Go out" in 45.0 and come back in 14.0 can't be too tough for the elites.

Of course, I never broke 64 in the 500, so what do I know!

I never said that I ran it at a meet, I said it is my best 500 meter time. I hold the 500 meter record at Taft College in Taft CA. The 59 came in a workout a week before the California Junior College Championships. My head coach was (Doug Wells) in 1987 and we had five runners under 60.8 seconds. Anthony Barnes was the second runner at 60.0 and Harlan Davis was the last guy to come in. He only ran 60.3, but came back the the next year and won the California Junior College 200 & 400 meters State Championship in 20.3 and 45.7. Coach Wells is still coaching today, but he is no longer at Taft College. He is over at Cerritos Junior College, fill free to e-mail him and ask what you like!!

Hello, do you remember Charles Pennington, he ran for Taft in 1986-87? Did he run the 400 meters?

Yes I did, Charles was a nice guy and a fast runner. I believe, he could have ran a (1:48) 800 that year. We had a 600 meter time trail in late december 1986 and Charles ran a 1:18.3 and took second to me. He ran stride for stride with me the hold way. If I wasn't 6 feet 1, he would have won the race. So what year did you go to Taft?

It's not totally unbelievable. I mean, I heard of a guy who ran 13:55 for the 5k in trainers.
