    Over distance running

    Over distance running workouts helps the athlete jump a further distance than their set goal. For example, having a 100m runner practice by running 200m repeats on a track. This is specifically concentrated in the season when athletes are working on building endurance. Specific over distance running workouts are performed 1 2 times a week. This is great for building sprint endurance, which is required in competitions where the athlete is sprinting down the runway 3 6 times. Typical workouts would include 5x150m. Preseason workouts may be higher, including workouts like 6x300m.
