Instructions

Another outdoor drill session for you. Especially good if you want to improve your legs ability to accelerate and decelerate.

You will need x6 cones in a straight line, each 10 strides apart from each other.

  • Start/finish at the first cone.
  • Start the stopwatch.
  • Run as fast as you can, slightly past the first cone…
  • Stop, then quickly step back behind the first cone…
  • Run as fast as you can, slightly past the second cone…
  • Repeat the process until you reach the last cone.
  • Turn around and run as fast as you can back to the start/finish line.
  • Stop the stopwatch as you pass the line.

Record your time and work towards making it as quick as possible. As you are able to accelerate and decelerate quicker/better, your time will improve.

Note: Your legs will burn….

Let’s do it!
