Coaches Top Tip

  • Try hard or perform well? Which is preferred for your brain surgeon? It's the same for athletes. Train for performance, not effort.
  • In the spring you may begin to feel bullet-proof. Resist the temptation to leap tall buildings. Patience!
  • The harder your hard workouts, the easier your easy ones.
  • Want to be excellent? Everyone has the desire to excel; few have the will to make it happen.
  • You can't make a tired muscle stronger. You can only improve its endurance.
  • Being 100% healthy is more important than being 100% fit. Don't force it in the early stages of injury or illness. Back off.
  • For the experienced athlete, intensity, not volume, is the key.
  • I discover who I am when I race.
  • Training your muscles is much more important than training your heart.
  • Training is science. Racing is art.
  • True champions win, but they also know how to lose.
  • Swimmers, golfers and tennis players practice skills daily. Too many runners and cyclists just run and ride.
  • Everyone has the will to win. It's the will to work that makes winners.
  • The closer to your A-priority race the less important volume becomes and the more important intensity & duration become.
  • Focus on the process, not the outcome.
  • The 2 main elements of recovery are sleep and nutrition. Neglect either and recovery is prolonged.
  • Whether you're a pro or novice, only 3 things can be changed in workouts: frequency (how often), intensity (how hard), duration (how long).
  • When you come into top form you experience physical changes that border on astonishing.
  • Do you accept setbacks as steps on the way to success or as signs you simply can't do it?
  • Discipline: how important to you are nutrition, sleep, periodization, goal setting, sport skills, attitude, health, strength?
  • What does it take to be mentally tough for sport? Dedication. Discipline. Confidence. Perseverance.
  • The most common mistake athletes make? Not enough rest. Rest is when fitness happens.
  • No dreams, no goals and no priorities means permanent mediocrity.
  • The bigger your athletic goals, the more your lifestyle must be focused on achieving them.
  • Most athletes don't get how important movement economy is. Most would go faster from improved economy than from improved VO2max.
  • As you approach race day your training should become more like the race. This is the foundation of periodization.
  • The common denominator for all of the best athletes I have known is a 'can-do' attitude.
  • Four words are the keys to success for top performers: Just a little more.
  • Good athletes don't become good by training randomly. You need a plan to achieve your goals and purpose for each workout.
  • Do the least amount of most specific training at appropriate times that produces the desired results. All else is overtraining.
  • I see many goals that are actually wishes - vague desires for grand achievements that are poorly defined. Clarity is needed for success.
  • Recovery is just as important as a hard workout. Train hard. Rest harder.
  • Racing is how I find out who I am, what my limits are, and how I can overcome them.
  • Best way to improve running? Frequency. Most common cause of running injuries? Frequency.
  • A hard workout only creates the potential for fitness. It's realized when you allow for recovery.
  • Peak athletic success takes months and years, not hours and days. Be patient and train consistently.
  • High frequency improves sport skill efficiency. High duration does the opposite.
  • Consistent and moderate training are the keys to success in endurance sport.
  • To run or climb faster remove excess weight, increase muscular power, or, preferably, both. It's hard to be fast dragging an anchor.
  • 1 pound of excess fat costs roughly 1.5 watts on a climb and 2 seconds per mile when running a 10k.
  • The fastest way to raise your VO2max is to lose excess weight.
  • If you haven't changed your mind on how you train in 2 years, check your pulse. You may be dead.
  • In order to find your limits, it is sometimes necessary to exceed them. But rarely.
