Run Faster than You Thought Possible

Are you training hard and yet fail to improve your race results at your favorite event? You're certainly not alone. More mileage and/or more intensity often result in overtraining and injury. What you need is a highly effective (and efficient!) training system with purposeful workouts – in the right amounts, at the right time.

The Training Method

I'm an advocate of funnel periodization (see graphic above), which initially establishes a strong base of both speed and endurance and then transitions gradually towards more race-specific intensities while all other skills are maintained. This approach has been popularized by the elite coaches Steve Magness, Roberto Canova, and Brad Hudson.
