Please excuse the amateur look for this part of my website.

I wrote most of this information almost thirty years ago, but it is still up-to-date in terms of accuracy and current beliefs in coaching and scientific communities. It is a collection of information that I have learned over the years, combined with some current issues. Hopefully, any interested runners (novice to competitive) will find the information useful.
