SpeedEndurance TV – 3 Tips for a Masters Sprinter Comeback

Here is another quick video from SpeedEndurance TV.

The chart below might help, and I am highlighting 22.0 & 48.0 (for 200m and 400m) which is very close to my 21.98 and 48.36 open PRs for the respective events.

One can also use WMA age grade tables (Excel sheet here) and get similar goals (see table below, right side):

    my question to the master sprinters:
    ” is there a speed standard to meet – so we can call us sprinters ?
    or is it just a state of mind and does not realy depend on speed ? ”

    ;-)

    I ran 11.4o 100m in HS, never ran college track. At age 52 I ran 12.17 in the Penn Relays. I never ran the 400m in HS, hated it. At age 52, my 400m season PR was 55.14 and 24.88 for the 200m. I think I’m ahead of attrition curve, your results may vary. Being a masters sprinter is about intelligent training and maintaining a body weight about the same or less than you were at age 18.
