Hey you guys,
I am a junior coming off of my second year running track and field!
I'm 6'1, 150 lbs. with super long legs (if that matters)
I ran the 800m,400m and 1600m last season in times (in order) of 2:00 (capable of at least 1:58 but a bad race cut my season short and bad coaching), :50, and 4:39
I personally want to be running a 1:53/:48/4:25 next season for my senior year.
I feel like I have a ton of room for improvement considering I have pretty inefficient running form (I sort of run like im sitting), I'm super inflexible and thus immobile, have never touched weights in my life, the longest I've ever run was 2 miles once (so no base training).
All of my times were achieved solely off of track workouts during the school season which consisted of a bunch of repetitions such as 600s (1:33 usually),400s (70 seconds),300s (:40). This summer I am running with a club and after a month and a half hiatus from running so far they had me do 800m repeats (2 sets of 2 with 4 minute break in-between each rep and a 10 minute break between sets at around 2:28 pace im out of shape remember lol), 200m repeats at around :27, and 800m break downs meaning I do a 200m at :24 then jog 200m then get right into a 400m at 1:15 and then another 200m which was generally somewhere around :28 and I did this twice.
I am dedicated to track and field and am willing to devote my life to the sport because I want to be the best 800m runner in the history of my city (Jacksonville, FL) and I want to run collegiate track at a few schools on my short list. I am willing to put in the work, sacrifice for greatness and have a burning desire to become the best version of myself that I can be!
That being said are my goal times for my senior year attainable and what must be done in order to reach those goals?
