The hills are alive…

The hills are alive with the sound of music. The grunting and groaning of a group of sprinters digging deep and working hard is music to my ears anyway.

For those who missed it, and would like to do it this weekend, here’s what we did.

The Hills of Hudson Field.

5 reps of the long hill in the corner

50/60/70/80/100 % with a jog back down the side for recovery.

2 minutes.

5/4/3/2/1 reps up the short sharp hill with 2 minutes recovery.

2 minutes

backward up the short hill x 2 with 2 minutes recovery.

2 minutes

Backwards up the hill in the prone press up position (for a rest)

2 minutes.

3 x long hill in the corner at 100%

Oh, we ran there and back as well from the track as a warm up.

Michael McIntyre – Skip, Skip….Hooray!

 

Thursday was our lovely Michael McIntyre session. Details are as follows:

The Michael McIntyre session

This session is named after the comedian because of his skipping. There is a decent amount of skipping in this session.

It is a special endurance session. Part plyometric, part lactic tolerance, part endurance.

Each set is a combination of 75% build-ups, and skips. The length of the build ups vary. Skips are always 50m.

Beast Camp, what beast camp?

Beast Camp

There will be no beast camp this year. I know, I know. You’re all gutted.

Because of the make up of the group this year I’m going to do something slightly different. We’re going to do some conditioning work, but only in terms of instruction. You’ll be given a schedule to complete in your own time.

The first four weeks are going to be very technical. We’re going to do all the drills, but to perfection. We’re also going to do some stability and preparation work.

But don’t despair, it’ll still be hard work. I don’t want you to worry!

Details will be posted on this site, including the conditioning work, flexibility work etc.

Justin Gatlin – The Man No-One Wanted to Win

Here’s a speed endurance.com article I wrote

The Man No-One Wanted to Win

Well, okay.

There was one person who wanted him to win, discounting the non-haters.

Justin Gatlin wanted Justin Gatlin to win.

Gatlin doesn’t understand why people hate him. People don’t understand why Gatlin is unrepentant and expects people to like him. In other words, they don’t understand why he doesn’t understand. I’ll try and clear it up for both parties with some biased pseudo-psychology.

Time is something we all spend. We have no choice. We spend it whether we like it or not. We spend it awake and asleep, busy or idle.

How we spend it though, that is what separates the great from the good.

Talent is earned. No-one is born with it.

Talent is earned. There is no such thing as being naturally talented. It is a conception of the weak, of the lazy.

Believing in natural talent is an excuse for not working hard. Anyone who is talented knows how long it takes to earn it, how hard it is. How fickle it is. They know what it takes once you have it to keep it.

Talent

Talent is earned.

The good thing about talent being earned is that anyone can earn it. If you’re prepared to put in the work, you can be talented too. But it takes time, not hours, days or weeks. Not even months. It takes years.
