Gotta get to bed early tonight. 20 x 400 in the morning!! Not for me. For the athletes. But us coaches have to be ready to bring the energy for big workouts too.
Remember, your job is what you do. It is not who you are.
The biggest mistake I’ve seen runners make in their careers is trying to morph their bodies into how they see another (more successful) person’s rather than finding the best version of lean and strong for themselves. Leaner isn’t always faster & comparison is never productive
Athletes: keep in mind that you are not training for sport you are training for life. This mindset releases a LOT of self-imposed pressure.
Extremely proud of the creativity of the elite training groups & outside enthusiasts for stepping up & creating opportunities for Pro runners and fans. Just like always @usatf sits and waits for others to keep the sport alive. @NHL@MLB@NBA@NFL all have plans. But not @usatf
I tweeted about how Europe is handling the pandemic better than America and a bunch of people in my mentions are telling me to go live in Europe and I’m like…I can’t because Americans aren’t allowed in because of how badly we’re handling the pandemic
If the hackers were smart, they would’ve held Strava for ransom, not Garmin. Everyone knows the real value isn’t in collecting the run data; it’s in showing it off to others.
Closing out this week of fast miles (and 1500s), Cory McGee wins the Team Boss Indiana Mile in 4:21.81 (#8 U.S. all-time outdoors). Dani Jones finishes second in 4:23.33, and Emma Coburn is third in 4:23.64. Big personal bests all around.
