While I’ve been doing this little new job I have which includes bouncing around Europe for a while, I’ve kind of neglected this blog a little bit.  Before I write anything substantial, I figured I’d fill the gap with some high speed video I took of a couple of professional 800m races that took place in Lignano, Italy.

When i get time, I’ll go through a little bit of the process of post-season evaluation that I go through using Tommy Schmitz as an example.  He had a kind of crazy season filled with some rookie mistakes by me and some ups and downs but came away with a nice 3:39 PR and another 2 races under his old PR, so no complaints, but I’ll go through what went right, wrong, and how to fix things.

Also, here’s a brief interview I did with Runner’s World on how my job’s going so far:

Until then, enjoy the videos:

    Looking forward to the future posts and evaluation, its all great work.

    Also, if you're not terribly busy coaching the elites of the US is there an email where one could shoot you a question regarding training?
