Just a very quick question. I am at a high school with meets on Thursdays and some invites on Saturdays. We have SEVERAL mulit event athletes that are involved in jumps and relays. My question is, when should they practice hand offs and how many. As it stands now they do them anywhere from 1-3 days a week, usually mon tues and wed and on some days, the second runner who also is a 37' female triple jumper and 5'4 high jumper is doing anywhere from 4-10 handoffs a day with a total volume pushing 10-15 per week.
I was proposing a limit of 4-6 total a week and only on Mondays as that would mesh with her runway work and the sprinters short speed work .
