Sunday Morning Reads 05.05.13

Good morning. Hope you’re well.

The first read is from Steve Magness. If you don’t understand the importance of stress and your training then you don’t fully understand training theory. It’s a great read.

Here is an article I wrote on mileage. Reader’s Digest version: The more the better, yet most working adults have a ceiling for the work they can do.

I’m about done with Matt Fitzegerlad‘s book “Run: The Mind-Body Method of Running by Feel” and I’ve loved every minute of it. Great read. Here is a great article by Matt on Pose Running and Chi Running and other topics. He’s fantastic…I think we need to do a podcast with him.

Final read this week is the blog of Macklin Chaffee, a 1,500m runner I coach. I like him, he’s talented and he’s working hard to become a better runner. He broke the 3:40 barrier (barley) this past weekend at Stanford. I feel confident that he can run faster as we’ve done very little race specificity work. He will enjoy some down time at sea-level, race a road race, then come back to Boulder for some serious training.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your Sunday.

    Thanks for these! I’m also a big fan of Matt’s writing, and RUN is definitely up there.
