Last weekend I missed out on what sounds like a great weekend in Vancouver. The Canadian Athletics Coaching Centre put on the National Endurance Conference. The one particular message that comes out of it was this: “run as many miles as you safely can.”
Steve Weiler shares some of his thoughts on the conference. He also noticed the “run a lot” theme.
Malindi Elmore learned a few things at the conference. And if she can learn something… (also cool that she seems to let slip that she may be moving up to 5000m this year!)
Cam Levins runs a lot of miles. I wonder if there’s a point of diminishing returns there. I mean, he’s good, but he’s not in the top elite of the world. Does he have room to grow?
Rob Jackson ponders the high mileage question, as well.
Even 1:47 800m runners are doing mileage. Gotta say, I like the fact that the Victoria/Scottsdale group is doing a winter build-up very similar to the one we are doing.
Jeremy Walsh talks about training and stuff…but he buries the lede: he’s making a Christmas sweater!
