Recently we did some parachute running for our athletics training. Our usual training consists of a warm up lap, drills (for further warm up and technique focus), followed by sprints (focusing on either 200m, 75m, 60m 0r 100m) and sometimes Long Jump depending on the sandpit conditions. In the above photos you can see us practicing 75m sprints with a running parachute for wind resistance in order to improve our endurance and speed. We only use the parachute for one or two of our sprints in training. It’s not good to over use it!
