Cancellation and workout ideas

posted Jan 27, 2014, 12:27 PM by Mustang TrackXC
Unfortunately, we had to cancel practice again today (Monday, the 27th).  The plus side, is that by now, you should have a good idea of some things that you could do on your own to keep your edge sharp.  Dont miss an opportunity to get better.

Sprinters: 
--Easy jog.  You could literally run in place for 10 minutes, or jump rope for 10 minutes to get a similar HR elevation.  
--Dynamics 
--some plyometric type work. (Squat jumps, lunge jumps, tuck jumps, single leg jumps, etc.).  
--Do some core work (you have a number of different routines you could use) 
--Preventive routine (never hurts to develop muscular structures to prevent injury)

Distance: 
--Easy jog and then either repeat workout or fartlek run.  
--If you can get to a treadmill, do 5-8x quarter-miles, with on a 2-4 minute interval.  If you cant get to a treadmill, then do something similar to what I just mentioned for the sprinters.
--Get some kind of core work in. 
--Preventive routine 

Jumpers: 
--10 min easy run, jumprope, or run in place
--Some plyometric/explosive type work mentioned above.
--Core work
--preventive routine

Throwers:  
--Runthrouhgs of footwork mechanics
--Body/Core routines
--Pushup and Dip routines
