RE: Sub 1:50 800m Training
Same, this deserves a bump since it is base phase for many collegiate and high school runners (including myself).
What do you guys think of my current base phase schedule? Where could I do more/less of something? What should I add? Basically how does my training align with someone shooting for 1:52 by the end of May.
Here's this week.
M: 4-6 miles easy, 6-8x100m strides (12-14 sec), pull-ups, bench, core work, bounding, skipping and jump rope
T: 3-4 miles, dynamic drills, 12x70m hill sprints at max effort (while staying relaxed) with 2:30 rest, 2 miles
W: mile warm up, 30 min, up-tempo run (approx 7:30 down to 5:20 pace gradually), lunges, hang cleans, Romanian deadlifts, box jumps
T: 6 miles easy
F: 3 mile warm up, 5x800 In 2:30 with 2:00 rest, 1.5 mile cool down
S: 7 miles easy
S: 13 mile LR, starts off slow with a few miles in 7:45+ and then gradually works down to averaging around 6:00 pace for the last 4-6 miles, 6-8x100m strides (12.5-14sec)
Around 45-47 miles this week
