Thread: 2 x 200m sets

    2 x 200m sets

    I remember Charlie talking about sets of 2 x 200m with 1 minute in between runs. I think the idea was to run at the pace of your potential 400m time and eventually you will get there without the rest. Can anyone remember specifically how these where done and in what phase?

    Sounds more like a KK session which was 2 x 200 + 200 where + = 30 sec and 30 mins between sets and was done in transition from memory.

    yes that does sound better, 1 minute rest would be too much

    - 2x200 session kitkat
    2min break. between runs when you do 2x2x200 take full recovery between sets up to 45 min.
    It's SPP session (or transition period sesion as KK call it)

    Pindaman, kitkats 6 x 200 starts out with 2min rest, but doesn't it progress to 2 x 2 x 200 with jog back rest between reps and 20min between sets? I think the final 2 x 200 was off of either jog back or 30secs with the first rep at come home pace and the second try to go even faster, wasn't it?

    Hi Star,

    No it doesn't progress to what you say.
    I have contacted KK and extensively studied teh lactate thread.

    Really it's 2x2x200 (2 min)' - full rec (45 min)

    jogging does happen with the 4x150, 30sec happens in the split runs like 300+150, or 300+4x60

    Well, although my title was 2 x 200m sets, I am sure I now remember it as John stated ie. 200 + 200 with very short rest. I am however, thinking it was one of Charlies not KKs.

    Either way, wouldn't come home pace be too slow for the reps? This would make for an easyish 400m.

    I am keen to find out what the actual session was since i remember doing it and the lactic biuld up in the hamstrings was greater than from any other session. That's good isn't it!
