Chances are you’re in charge of the entire sprints group. You know your 100m runners and 400m runners often need different types of training.

If you’re timing the long sprints interval workout, you’re not addressing the abomination taking place over at the starting line.

I was doing both groups a disservice when I tried to write separate programs. I was doing both groups a disservice when I coached to the ‘middle’. So I had to figure out a solution.
And I did.
