the right thing in the right way.
I see the runner you can be. Not the one you were before.
Coaching and competing in every running distance from 100 meters to 100 miles impelled me to adopt a holistic perspective. One that honors the importance of the whole body and the interdependence of its parts. Viewed holistically, several factors go into harnessing a person’s raw running ability. They include training, nutrition, psychology, and genetics (and the total impression they create).
There will always be those who are fitter and faster and others who are less fit and slower. Just as there are individual differences in the need for rest and recovery. Having the physical talent is one thing but with no support structure or clear direction a runner may end up abusing that talent. The most important factor to consider is your own time process – where you are now compared to where you were before or more importantly, where you will be three months from now! Where there’s a will, there’s a way. As long as you’re ready to follow a running program that incorporates the right distances, paces, and recoveries for who you are, you will fulfill your goals.
