Preparing the Elite Junior Middle Distance Runner (800-1600)

A few months ago I sent a survey asking for your questions about training middle distance runners.

I took those responses and sent them to 14 year USATF Level II Lead Instructor Scott Christensen. He created an excellent new program, running over 2 hours and 35 minutes, called ‘Preparing the Elite Junior Middle Distance Runner (800-1600).’

It’s broken up into 4 sections (Athlete and Event Profiling for the Middle Distance Events, Training Modalities for the 800m and 1600m Events, The Multi-Paced Training Scheme for
the 800m and 1600m Events and Key Workouts for Each Pace of  the Multi-Paced Training Scheme) and aimed at taking your high school level middle distance runners to the next level.

The link will tell you everything you need to know, so I won’t say much more here, except this:

Coach Christensen is offering a very cool bonus for the first 150 coaches who order the program. It’s a reward for the ambitious and I highly recommend you take a moment right now to register.

As people wake up and start checking their emails, these slots are going to fill up quickly. You know how hard it is to find good middle distance training information. Don’t let this one
slip by.
