We are at a moment in endurance sports history where confusion and uncertainty exists around every corner. Should I run my long run at 7:00 min/mile or 7:05 min/mile? So I need to run 100 mile weeks to be a fast runner? Do I need to run seven days a week?
In times of great needs like these a voice can often be heard for those willing to listen. My ear (actually eyes) heard (truthfully read) such a voice (blog post) and it presented me the holy grail of training wisdom. I am so grateful that this insight has been re-released for us all to progress and enjoy our endurance journey here on earth.
Like all teachers of truth from years gone by, this message is not an individualized plan but a thematic message that transcends them all and can be weaved into each individual’s endurance life in a unique way for them.
Many times such philosophical insight is often discarded as useless. What do I do? Tell me the specifics! I want details!
We are presented with what we need to hear, not what we want to hear.
So before you create a new training program, hire a coach, rub BodyGlide on those delicate inner thighs, or strap on that heart rate monitor, make sure to actualize this training plan secret so graciously revealed to us by sagacious endurance athlete Chuckie V.
Be active – Feel the buzz!
