Running Times Magazine: Peter Snell: Gentleman, Athlete, Scholar

Running Times Magazine: Peter Snell: Gentleman, Athlete, Scholar | SportCatcherMain | Scoop.it

Spend as much time as you can on the conditioning and you'll eventually get yourself into, as Lydiard liked to say, a 'tireless state.' In practical terms, you could run the Waiatarua course and feel like you could go out the next day and do it again. You recovered rapidly. Once you got there it was a very heady feeling. You could do a great volume of training, get your intervals down to race pace, and do more faster than race pace.

Leonidas Athanasopoulos's curator insight, December 21, 2012 11:46 AM

The philosophy presented in this article could be applied to many sports activities and important races. I see even greater relevance of this approach to races involving intimidating distances, like ultras. It is a very interesting approach as well for our every day lifestyle.

 

Somehow I have applied a twist of this in my "no plan" approach to my ultra runs in the last two years. And the results have been encouraging.
