How to Plan Effective Training for High School Distance (3200)

Scott Christensen hands you the keys to planning every single practice for the whole year... 

From mileage and VO2 max runs to Special Endurance and anaerobic system development, the way you structure and progress your 2 mile training model, will make or break your athletes and program...

Literally and figuratively!

Whether transitioning to the track after Cross Country or building on last year's results, in this modern era of developing distance runners more like traditional athletes and less like endurance specialists, you can’t get away with clinging to the old school, ‘LSD’ based model of days gone by.

If you’re running (or building) a competitive high school distance program, you know how hard it is to find practical, cutting edge training information designed specifically for the sub-collegiate athlete and program...

And a program with day by day, high school specific workout progressions from January through the end of the spring season...

...with specific instructions on modifying that schedule if your indoor season starts the Monday after Thanksgiving?

Forget about it!

Until, now that is!

Here at Complete Track and Field, distance coaches ask for one thing above all else:

Specific Workout Progressions

And Coach Scott Christensen has delivered!

You may be familiar with Coach Christensen’s two other highly regarded'Training Model' programs covering Cross Country and Middle Distance (800 - 1600). 

The Training Model for High School 3200m follows the same format.

Scott leads off with the training science and theory behind each mesocycle...

...and then breaks down each microcycle...

...which leads him into...

...laying out the details and methodology behind each and every specific workout (I'll get to why this is so critical to your growth as a coach in just a moment).

Here's What You Get...

The program is broken up into five modules covering the full six month track season. Further, each monthly module is broken into two sections: 

Scientific Principles & Training Theory

Specific Daily Workouts

We’ll also give you the PowerPoint slides so you can follow along with all 7 hours of video content or review the materials on your own.

If you haven't already, watch the 12 minute preview video at the top of this page. 

The first half, taken from the ‘January / February’ (or 'November / December' if you live in the northeast and have a full 13 week Indoor Track season) module, contains clips from the Scientific Principles & Training Theory section for early GPP.

When you watch, you'll learn about why and how long athletes must rest after the Cross Country season ends, as well establish the 4 critical training paces serving as the foundation of the entire season's workout progressions.

The second half jumps to May where Scott overviews the four 9-day microcycles wrapping up the Pre-Competition Period and moving directly into the main Competitive training period.

Next, steal Scott's 6-5-4-3-2 Ladder Workout...

...but watch his explanation about not only how it changes now vs back in March when you'll first run it...

...but also learn who should be doing this workout...and who he never uses it with.

As you watch, consider that the full program details every single workout for the entire season in this format. You’ll quickly realize both the quality and scope of the information, as well as feel relieved by the practical and straightforward delivery.

Because every situation and athlete is different, the ‘Scientific Principles & Theory’ portion will give you just enough science to understand the ‘Why’ behind the training.

You’ve likely heard the saying:

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

In this program, you’re given your daily fish and being taught to feed yourself for a lifetime!

Don’t feel like going fishing today❓ 

No stress... Just eat the fish you’re given‼️

Still learning how to fish❓ 

Bring your pole and test the waters. If it’s not going according to plan, you know you have a meal waiting for you at home‼️

Fancy yourself a Master Fisherman/woman❓

Get some advice from a fellow Master and bring home an even bigger catch‼️

When you think about it, regardless of your coaching experience, you and your athletes stand to benefit greatly from this program. 

And helping our athletes realize their full potential is the fundamental reason we coach, isn’t it?

OK...But How Much Does It Cost?

Fair question.

ONE TIME OFFER (Just $19)It’s no secret that modern training strategies for 800m runners have evolved toward using more speed training and speed development (there's a difference) workouts and progressions ...the ones typically found in sprints programs. But your strengths probably aren’t in your understanding of not only how to teach efficient sprinting mechanics to your 800m athletes, but also how, when, and why speed development is critical to the continued development and success of your middle distance athletes. If you want to learn more about how you can best add this type of training to your program, but don’t want to become an expert sprints coach in the process, you’re exactly the type of coach ‘Speed Development for Distance Runners’ was made for.
