Resources for learning about track workouts?

In my efforts to continue to learn and understand performance I'm interested in the track back ground several games competitors have.

I know nothing about this type of programing. Shortest thing I ever trained for pre CrossFit was 10k (actually cross country in H.S. but didn't really pay attentions to programing just chased fastest guy on the team).

Books and websites to lean about track programing? Seems like 800m training is the one that cross over so well to CrossFit's anaerobic and aerobic demands.

I have a sneaking suspicion I'll regret asking this when I try out a few of the workouts but it is a goat so lets kill it.

Re: Resources for learning about track workouts?

Short distance is waaaay different than middle distance which is waaaay different than long distance.

Speed endurance is a pretty good site that tends to focus on more of the middle distance stuff 400-800m and a bit with 200m too


For sprinting resources you're gonna wanna look at some of the stuff listed in here

Charlie Francis' site has a bunch of his work compiled in a comprehensive E-Book package for $99.99. I think I got it for about $45 before he passed away. (WFS)

The Parisi Speed School also has good stuff, but it ends up being pricey. (WFS)

And, EliteTrack is a good site for Track & Field info. (WFS)
