    what do you do on speed days? last year we did a lot of 200's but this year we havent done any. this year we do 400's or 800's. sometimes we'll do a ladder, where we will do a couple 100's then 200's then 400's then 800's then go back down. or sometimes we'll do repeat miles.
    anyways i was just wondering what yall do and how many you do. we do like 12 or 16 400's and then 6 800's.

    Hill workouts, with surges, about 3 minutes per hill.
    On the track, some of our staple workouts are 8x800, 12x300, 6x800+4x200, or say 8x300m repeats followed by a tempo outside.

    200's and 300's mostly, but sometimes we might do a couple 400's.

    Usually we do 8x400 followed by 4x600m. For speed, sometimes our coach adds in a few 300m ones.
