He would give you one set at a time and you never knew how much more you were doing that day. He set your workout as you went along based on how you reacted to each part of the work out. He had an uncanny knack of knowing how you felt and how much you could do.
There was nothing wrong with the mileage. My monthly mileage during the first 7 months of 1966 was 367, 474, 543, 519, 500, 475, 432 of very hard work.
Tere were times that during the warmup runners would be hardly moving at first. I note that during the early fall of 1956 we were instructed to take "two weeks off-run 90 min each nite-vary the pace once in a while". So we ran on the grass around the larger field for 90 minutes and then did 10-20 shake ups and went home. My log also states that after about 10 days he commented "you move very well". I also wrote that I felt loose. You never worked out without Igloi being there watching and even if I was there well after the others, he stayed and observed.
My first workout after this vacation period: 30 min warm up-10 shake ups-30 x 260 with 180 jog-10 fresh speed, 10 fresh swing, 10 fresh speed-3 lap jog-20 x 100-1 shake up, 1 hard speed build up The next day was harder with the main portion being 25 x 220 fresh speed and then 12 x 440 good swing (drive). I did large repeat work outs for 5 days in a row before a couple of easier days.
