Podcast 003 – Steve Magness Interview

In this episode Steve Magness, assistant coach with Alberto Salazar’s Oregon Project, and I talk track during some downtime at the 2011 Canadian National Endurance Conference. Many of you know Steve’s blog, The Science of Running, but if not, please take some time to check it out as it’s a great resource.

Not only did Steve run 4:01 in high school in the mile, he’s coached many male high school athletes in the Houston area, as he shares in his bio from his blog.

A sampling of PR’s from my HS guys: 4:13, 4:14, 4:17, 4:18,4:19, 4:20, 4:25, 4:26 and 4:27 for 1600m and 8:55, 9:15, 9:22, 9:26, 9:27, 9:30, 9:33, 9:38 for 3200m.


I hope you enjoy this podcast and I look forward to your feedback.

    Glad you enjoyed it.  I really enjoyed sitting down with Steve – rich background for such a young coach.

    Great Pod cast! Another gold mine of info. I am a young coach and you two are my  biggest influences.

    Best podcast yet! Could have been much longer, IMO! 
    I'd like to have you interview him re: history of training. So we can know what Lydiard, Coe, “the Italians,” etc. means….

    I agree with Matthew.  Also would like to hear more about the progressions Canova and Salazar implement in their athletes training.  Steve and yourself touched on it but didn't go into great detail, I'd like to hear more for sure.

    Great podcast!  I agree, it could have been much longer!  I cleared my morning schedule to take notes!  Guess I'm one of those “geeks” you were referring to.  

    Thanks Jay & Steve!
