Coach these workouts are boring. Ok here try this - Run 40 x 400 everyday for three weeks! That is what Emile Zatopek did. I don't recommend it, but we need to get back to training robust adaptable athletes rather than entertaining them. Sometimes training is boring.

🚨 Speed Drill 🚨 💥 We simply call it the SL RDL into A double boom. 💥We use with our athletes to work on heel recovery, hip stability and end position shape/technique. 💥It can be regressed by: * removing the switch at the end * Focusing on A-pose holds and RDLs superset.

The real secret of world-class performers isn't the daily routines that they develop, but that they stick to them–that they show up, even when they don't feel like it.

Sage advice from Gary Winckler and : never plan in detail more than 2 weeks in advance. It simply isn't worth it.

The more experienced the runner, the more the coach exists to prevent the runner from doing dumb things, from getting in their own way. It’s holding back not pushing forward. Training isn’t rocket science. Most of us could write a program that gets us 95% of the way there.
