English term or phrase: sand drill - bleacher - run - cones and boxes
"My coach had me moved on to the sand drill, then do bleacher runs, then cones and boxes" (a hurdle racer says).
I have NO IDEA of the meaning of these terms in this context. Any one smarter ?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Explanation:
I can give one or two clues which might help put you on the right track (!)

sand drill : a drill is an exercise concentrating on one specific skill and which is repeated ad infinitum. This one must be done in the sand = des exercices dans le sable

bleacher run : a bleacher is a tier of of seats in a sports stadium. The trainer makes him run up and down the steps on the tiered seating.

cones and boxes : slalom running between cones and boxes (although he may have to step up onto the boxes).

Some of the training done by hurdlers can be seen on : http//:www.hurdling.com
