t's early season here in the USA I have started the crazy travel schedule again. My thanks to Adam Zucco & his TrainingBible Coaching crew for hosting me again in Chicago - they do a great job. I do an evening lecture for them & then a compact 90min session with groups of six long course athletes. Below is a note I received to my website this morning:
"Hi Bobby, I just
wanted to thank you for coming out to Chicago for a great couple of days. I
applied what you spoke to me about after the clinic, and saw immediate
results... I can't wait to see the changes in the long term as I apply and
practice. Specifically, I ran a 2 mile run off a difficult 4 hour effort on the
bike... I kept my HR in Zone 2, but dropped my pace by over a minute! 4 days
before, during my long run (on full rest) with the same HR restrictions, I was
over a min slower on pace. I look forward to the long term journey in making
these changes feel more effortless and "natural"... basically undoing
years of crap form! ha Thanks again, and have a great week"
It is immensely gratifying to see all levels of triathlete gain benefit from assessing their run form & taking on the process of tweaking it to gain performance benefits.
So keep working on upping the stride rate safely & go fast!
