2020 RunBlogRun Spring Track & Field Training program, Week One, Day One...easy does it


The two weeks of recovery are over. Now, comes the time to begin the build up. We will begin slow, and give those who race indoors time to race a bit and also train, but the focus is on outdoor track and field. In 2020, just under one million high school boys and girls will compete in track.

Early season training is the same for those in 800m-5000m. Specialization comes later. Again, our workouts are based on actual workouts successfully used for high school boys and high school girls. Always listen to your coaches! This is a supplement to daily coaching. If you have questions, email me at [email protected].

My philosophy: We want to enhance your enjoyment of this life long sport.
