RE: My Attempt to respond to oasis' request
Thanks for sharing such detailed info on how you train the kids. Arthur would have been proud! I really liked your training pattern that you've sent to me earlier because it was very simple and straight forward Lydiardism. I also liked your use of 200s.
I tend to view longer reps as more or less high end aerobic workouts rather than "pure" anaerobic workout. I don't know exactly what's going on in your body when different individuals are running at certain speed. Lydiard used to do that simply 3/4 efrort runs; or in the case of Squires, it was road fartlek, or surges. Peter Snell was saying that he simply likes straight forward reps of run one fast and jog one--same distance recovery so you can keep fairly good speed. For "pure" anaerobic work, if that was your intention, I like your use of 200s because, even though most kids would be able to handle 400s, I'd still like to keep it low-key. Plus, they can run them at faster speed.
