PRE was a hard trainer. He used to have a ten-mile run that he would totally RIP! Nobody would run with him when he did his ten-miler once a week. He started at a hard sprint and fought himself every step of the way. (I taught that workout to him. I got it from Ron Clark of Australia). His coach tried to get PRE to slow down but PRE would have none of that. Gun goes off; PRE is off at a total sprint.

This is accurate; and unfortunately Dellinger tried to get Pre to slow down, and Dellinger was loading Pre with more than Bowerman did/would have.

As a result, very few Dellinger athletes had much of a career after college, and those that did had left Dellingers tutelage...

did pre really do this kinda of stuff for 30 weeks? and 10 weeks for base? thats 7 1/2 months of hard training, with only 2 1/2 months base. how could his aerobic system survive that much anaerobic training. plus say for the state championship series in may. he would have to start his 30 week thing in like october or something. so he started training for track in the middle of XC season?
