Advice for 200m? Not a natural fast sprinter but it’s my last year.

  1. If you’re a 200 meter runner, you absolutely have 0 reason to be doing cross country, let alone “conditioning”. If you prioritize one energy system over another (in this case your aerobic system), the other systems will suffer and be neglected. As blunt as it sounds, the 200 is a sprint event and doing distance running will only make you slower and weaker. Sprinting, specifically the 200, Requires a high % anaerobic usage. Weights will help, especially in terms of power development. My best advice is to stop doing general “strength” and “conditioning” work.
