It's really hard for me to be consistant with my running during my team's season. If I could get 2-3 seven milers per week and a 10-13 miler on the weekend, that would give me some base to work with for the summer.


     




    Why not train with the kids you coach? It worked for my coach in high school. He'd do running with us as part of his training for duathlon/triathlon and he was one of the best in the country so I don't know if we held him back too much.

    Well, I have taken on the responsiblity of coaching the sprinters, jumpers and hurdlers this year. The kind of training I would do with them would not be conducive to running fast. This is always my problem during the spring. In the fall, I can run with the cross country kids and keep myself in 17:30-18:15 5k shape. In the spring, I'm just way too busy.

    My sprinters do aerobic training once per week, which for them is a couple of miles easy jog then sprint the straights and jog the curves for 1-1.5 miles.  I did that last week and think I will do the aerobic stuff with them for as long as they keep doing it.  We're doing 800s on tuesday

    Re: your outdoor track goals?

    It's not so much a goal as it is a schedule.
    I WILL be running at least 15:59 this summer for a 5k on the track.
    By the way for anyone too lazy to check the profile I'm 20yrs, 4.5years running experience minus the last year and a half (out with a couple serious injuries)

    Re: your outdoor track goals?

    Senior in high school this year (male).

    I'm hoping for these times
    1600 - 4:24
    800 - 1:56
    400 - 52

    at the least I want to get to
    1600 - 4:30
    800 - 1:59
    400 - 54

    I also already have a summer goal of breaking 16 minutes for a 5k. That goal may change depending on how track goes.

    This is the first year I've committed myself entirely to running, so hopefully I really get somewhere this year. Good luck to everyone else in achieving their goals.

    Re: your outdoor track goals?

    female, senior in h.s...

    my main goal would to get a PR in ANYTHING...all of my PRs are from sophmore year.

    that would require a
    2:25 800
    5:03 1500
    11:02 3000

    I dont know if that 800's gonna happen...i got that when i was consistantly on our 4x8 teami dont run open 800s. as of this winter, im pretty much second alternate and running consistant 2:35s on the few occasions i did get to run. our workouts were more geared towards the 800 than anything else too.  if some miracle happens and i do well in the 8 this springgood enough to get my spot backill get to run at penn relays, which has been my goal since i knew that penn relays existed.<br /><br />judging by my winter season the 11:02 is probably the most reasonable goal...that would mean taking 22 seconds off of my winter time, which sounds like a lot but im guessing that the shift from indoors to outdoors alone will take off about 10 seconds. running indoors really screws with my breathing.  <br />also i wasnt running more than 20-25 miles a week and hopefully we'll be training better in spring.<br /> <br />the 5:03 is probably doable too. none of my 1500s this winter were much better than mediocre, but then again i didnt have the opportunity to run many to begin with.<br /> <br /> <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>Originally posted by adrenaline07:<br /><b><br />I'm a female and this is my first year trying track...<br />800- 2:35-2:45<br />1mile-6:35-6:45<br /><br /></b><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><br /><br />what are you basing these times off of? because there is a big difference between a 2:40 800 and a 6:40 mile.  I would expect someone who runs a 2:40 800 to run maybe a 6:00 mile...i know in the very beginning of my winter season this year, i ran a 2:39 800 and a 5:59 mile in the same meet. and the mile was second, otherwise i probably would have done better.<br /><br /><br /><br />--

    Senior male in Highschool

    400m - 56 seconds running this one for fun basically
    800m - 2:10 I want to stop being horrible at this distance
    1600m - my state runs the 1500 and the 3000 but for a 1600 i think a 4:35 - 4:25 would be good
    3200m - again I never run this distance except for one invitational in another state a 10 flat would be good

    badboys...
    my speed workouts usually consist of repeat 400's, repeat 800's, or rolling 200's.  I usually do 6-8 400's at around 66-60 second intervals with about 3 minutes of rest.  I do 6 800's at around 2.30-2.25 with about 4 minutes of rest.  I do 8-10 rolling 200's at around 31-28.

    It seems like your really lacking on the endurance end of things. Try and put in some miles and adding some speed work on to the end of it, for example run like 5miles and then do some 200s or hills when your done. You just need to work on your endurance so when you get to that second lap you can hold the pace your on.
