The Relaxed Marathoner is a Winning Marathoner
31 August 2007
At the starting line, one can always see the determined faces of runners. Even before they take a single step, they already fix their eyes on the finish line. And in their overwhelming desire to win the race, they sometimes show signs of tension and stress. But if you're a highly competitive athlete, the tension is just part of the job.
That is why it is already axiomatic for endurance runners and other athletes to have physical strength and endurance, will power, and discipline. It is also part and parcel of their job to encounter a number of physical and health concerns that come as a result of strenuous physical activity.

For an exhausted cross country runner they'll either make you or break you.
They are hills.
It's just as critical to be able to sprint down them as up them. For a coach it's important to balance how and when to practice hill work to prepare for the final three weeks of the season, better known as the "Peak Season".
More than ever, hill work must be done to build up speed and strength.

Imagine running strong
September 04, 2007
Runners devote a great deal of time to the physical aspects of training. Meticulously followed race preparation plans demand runners complete minimum mileage totals, speed work sessions, tempo runs, long runs and rigorous dietary guidelines.
Elite athletes spend a lot of time on mental preparation. But recreational runners may not give this area the time it deserves. There are some runners who find the physical and mental components tied together, but may not see running as a way to enhance their lives in any cerebral way.
