Is that legit Mara? the 300 BEFORE the 70?..sounds like one hell of a training session. . .

Yep 300m first followed immediately by 70's , just like old Emil Z would have liked it.
unfortunately our hands are tied by AV , it fits with their programming

5 Re: Zatopek Timetable on Tue Dec 10, 2013 7:20 pm


Mara, do you happen to know if we are on the track for the 70m or on the infield ?

6 ??????? on Tue Dec 10, 2013 8:00 pm


First time running there for VAL. What do you mean by infield. Grass or Track. Blocks provided or bring you own. Thanks

7 Re: Zatopek Timetable on Wed Dec 11, 2013 5:28 pm


The 70m's are on the grass soccer pitch, 300m around the rubber bend.
blocks are provided by AV, can't use your normal blocks
