Re: Training Critique

Not sure why there is so much running, and slow running at that! Multi event athletes are all about speed and explosiveness. 45 minutes of jogging, 8 x 150 at 80%, this is not the kind of running that makes you faster. And this far from the competitive season I would recommend more general athletic activities like playing basket or volleyball, playing catch with a baseball or football, hitting golfballs, even ping pong or badminton to help with Javelin. The best ATHLETES make the best Multi eventers so why focus so much on the track? Adding more complexity makes the workouts more fun and more challenging.
