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.

Trey Hardee Abs

Opportunity

 

Yes. This is it, the 2 minute core workout that will take about 10 minutes to start with. By Xmas you’ll be banging through this in 2 minutes and have abs of steel.

3 Times a week as a minimum please, but feel free to do these every day!

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.

4x100m – England on Penalties

Great Britain 4x100m Relay at the Beijing World Championships 2015

I know it’s a football reference, and I haven’t watched a football match for many years, but the GB relay team has the same air of inevitability about it that an England Penalty shoot-out had. You just knew. It didn’t matter what your hopes were. You just knew.

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.

Has your ship come in yet?

Has you ship come in yet? Really?

There you are, patiently waiting for it to come along and pick you up and it hasn’t happened.

Of course it hasn’t. Opportunity NEVER comes knocking. Not really. YOU create opportunities.

No limits sports – do what people say you can’t do

Never be limited by what other people think you can’t do. Be inspired by it. Prove them wrong. Set yourself no limits sports don’t need them.

No-one can make you feel inferior without your permission.

Don’t give them that permission.

Sports Motivation

No Limits Sports

Limitations are for people that don’t have a dream, or that don’t know how to dream. Start no limits sports. Impose no limits on yourself. Do everything and blow the doubters away.

Make your dream a reality.
