We are taking a trip back into the time machine. It’s time to look back at training and coaching that we used to do, that we now look back upon and ask “what in the world were we thinking?” This weeks episode is about reflection. Not only to laugh at our ignorance, but to learn from it. What are some of the items that we wonder why in the world did we do that?

  • Micromanaging our training and athletes
  • Drills to perfection
  • Endless core work instead of strength work
  • Elaborate and exacting race plans
  • Writing out the entire seasons training at the beginning of the year
  • Overreliance on one style or type of workout
