I have coached for thiry years and have never seen a person who could really handle this workout. Though I incorporate the sprint 50/float 50 sessions into my programs in the late season, they are for much shorter duration (rarely these days over 800 meters).
I wonder how that would work for me if I tried it out. Can you explain it more? I know it sounds simple enough, but is there any special preparation b4 such a workout?
Lately, I have been thinking about that one workout Quenton Cassidy the hero of O.A.R. around the end of his quest, which is 60 400s on the track with 100 meter jog rest in between. He hit 63's for the first 40 and then the book doesn't really tell you what he does for the rest of then. Twenty miles on the track is a long way, specially when doing repeats. I know this book if fictional and all, but has anyone ever done such a thing? Is it possible? I want to know more...
