Athletes: High school sprint group of 20 athletes.
Scenario: 10 of the athletes ran indoor track and went through a very short GPP-SPP-Comp cycle. These atheltes peaked for the indoor state meet at the end of the season. 5 of the remaining 10 athletes played another winter sport such as swimming or basketball. The remaining 5 athletes did no organized activity during the indoor track season. The first outdoor track meet is in 3 weeks and the outdoor state meet is 12 weeks away. It is important that athletes be prepared to run decently by at least week 9 in order to be ready for the pre-states qualification meets (districts, regionals, etc.). Assume that there are no true event specialists in the group.
Things to consider:
*How do you integrate the new people with those who have been training for the previous three months? Do you treat those athletes who competed in a winter sport other than track differently than those who did nothing or those who ran indoor track?
*How do you modify the training of those who ran indoors to be best prepared for the outdoor season? (i.e.- do you go back to GPP, SPP, etc. or just keep them in competition phase training).
*How do you set up the overall training setup for the group (or each individual sub-group) over the next 12 weeks given the short season and requirement to be running fairly well by at least week 9.
