Week of April 13th
I sincerely apologize for my absence...
Last week's work load and the need for a no-distraction family-oriented Easter kept me away from blogging about the jumps.
To ensure my heavy workload doesn't effect me helping others I thought I'd create a post covering the entire week; and write other blogs related to general everyday life/thoughts when time presents itself.
I recently gave a jumper I work with a schedule to follow during this time. Since starting this schedule, she's accomplished some great distances/times in her training and I wanted to share.
The schedule is much like one I've shared on here before, but this one (I feel) gives better parameters for overall distance and the various focuses of the day.
Here's what I created for her (following numerous resources found online):
Mondays - Speed work & low impact drills day (Walking long jump and chair drill)
Tuesdays - Jumps, plyos, and video work (Watch long jump videos for at least 15 minutes)
Wednesday - Speed endurance (your choice between #1 or #2) & low impact drills day (Walking long jump and chair drill)
Thursday - Jumps, plyos, and video work (Watch long jump videos for at least 15 minutes)
Friday - Meet Day (Sprints and jumps together in one day - treat this like a real meet)
Saturday - Recovery (No running, no jumping, etc.)
Sunday - Recovery (No running, no jumping, etc.)
Along with that general outline, I provided her with this:
20-80 meter runs (don’t go over 80m)
95-100% top speed
500 meters TOTAL
3-5 minutes rest between runs
Short Speed Endurance (Endurance #1):
30-80 meter runs (don’t go over 80m)
95-100 % top speed
800 meters TOTAL
1-3 minutes rest between runs
Speed Endurance (Endurance #2):
