Thanks. Definitely complementary for conditioning purposes! However endurance after 45-60mins is suspect.....
BTW looking forward to our virtual training week :-)

Can you design a first day w short sprints/strides and maybe a short distance time trial like a 200?

Then second day I was thinking 4 or 5 1200's where you run 2 quarters at a good effort like I pace and 1 very get to pick which quarter, or mix it up...good for race tactics.

Then rest day...

Then 4th day, want to rely on you again - maybe some middle distance sprints, like 300, 400, 600? What do you think?

OK let's try this (your Q workouts interlaced with my regular schedule):

M 4/11 rest/easy stretching/drills

Q1 T 12th wu, short 40-50m wind sprints, a 200 hard (90-95%) with complete recovery (5R) then 4-6 200''s run as follows: 120 cruise (85% max) then 80m (home straight at) 95%. 3R

W Shake out run, drills and strength

Q2 T 14th wu, strides, then 4-5 1200 run as cruise 800 (80%) then harder last 400 (85-90%) 4-5R

F easy/rest stretching

Q3 S 16th wu, strides then 600, 400, 300, 200, 100 down ladder (85%, with reducing rest starting at 3R)

How does that sound?
