#Amble Report: Football Conditioning Test, Take Two or One?

8 faithful arrived at the Owens Field Track this morning for another installment of Speed Monday. The game plan was for Fountainhead to deliver the sequel to July’s football conditioning test (20 110-yard sprints) for an assessment of the pax’ progress over the last two months. A couple of things went wrong. First, Fountainhead had to skip the workout due to illness. Second, not a single person from the July workout was present this morning. So, instead of a progress report these 8 pax established a baseline. Regardless, the test was passed with flying colors.

Conditions: 71 with 95% humidity

The Thang:

Four laps of warm-up. Then, averaging anywhere from 12.5 seconds to maybe 17 or so, run 20 100-meter (closest track equivalent to 110 yards and actually about dead on) sprints. Using the straight-aways, the pax lined up and sprinted 100 meters followed by 30 seconds recovery (while jogging the two turns to the next straight-away). At the end of each quarter the recovery was stretched to 90 seconds with a 180 second “halftime.” Finally, 2 laps of cool-down completed the session.


  • Solid, solid effort by all pax this morning. This is a tough workout and everyone left everything they had on the track. Well done.
  • Totals on the Day: 1.25 miles of outright sprint. Grand Total Including all Warm-up and Recovery: 4 miles (1.25 of sprinting and 2.75 of recovery/warm-up)
