I am interested in this concept. I (or my coaches) have usually focused only in increase the quality of the runs decreasing the volume without taking that much into account the last performances.
In my case, I am feeling pretty fast (2.8x in flying 30 and 6.6x in 60m standing), the problems I have felt during my races are:
- Bad start.
- Crossing legs: some cuts&blood on the calves.
- Last 50 meters on the 200.
- Slow start on the 400 (first 200m) and the last 80m (I guess that's normal).
I am not sure how I would address this; I am writing my reasoning: as I am competing on Saturday, I thought on 2 days:
Monday: 4x80m (starting from blocks, 400m pace). 4x150.
Wednesday: 4x100m, 2x(200+200).
Tempo on Tuesday and warm-up on Friday.
Does the reasoning makes sense? If not, where is the mistake and what/why would you change? Thanks!
