Coaching Speed In

Let not over complicate this. You coach speed into the athlete by training speed at the appropriate time in the workout, using an appropriate method and dosage for the time of the training year. You train speed out by doing all sorts of general non specific work and slow “base building” type of work. Remember you are what you train to be! To be fast you must train fast. Look at University of Oregon versus University of Michigan as an example. There are many more. When I hear a coach say I have not started speed work yet, I just smile and I hope we can compete against those teams often.

Thanks for the clarification Vern. I was probably reading too much into it.
