Works on building endurance so the athlete can give their best throughout the entire race.
- You need an open track for the runners to do this drill.
How it Works
- This drill can be split into three different groups based on the distance that the runners are going to run at a meet.
- For example, if the runners are going to be running 1500m, they can run endurance sets of 400m.
- If their event is 3,000m, then they can do the sets at 800m.
- For runners doing 5,000m or more, they can do 1500m sets.
- For 400m, the runners should do 5 runs. They should rest for 3 or 4 minutes in between each run.
- For 800m sets, the runners should do 3 runs, with a 5-minute rest in between.
- If you do longer runs, (1500m), then do only two sets with a 7 minute rest in between.
- During this drill runners should go at ¾ speed instead of running all out.
