Athletes, these two (or more) “lost” weeks offer each of you an interesting opportunity. You have the chance to follow a much better athletic training regime, one that gets closer to the plans being used by the best endurance athletes in the world. Expect more posts by me to guide this plan. For now, we need to start with the most important part… with WHY. Watch the video below. Then, write out 3 or more reasons why our current crew training is flawed based on this research. Watch the video again, and write out at least 5 reasons why your typical school day is not ideal to optimal training. Email me your lists. I’ll post (attendance page) the ones (no names associated) I think are best. My judging criteria are (in order of importance): brevity, comprehensiveness, insight, and brutal honesty.
