|Subject: ||RE: Mihaly Igloi|
From 1968 to 1971 I was a teacher and an assistant track coach at Loyola High School in Los Angeles, Ca. Coach Igloi was there for the three years I was there as a cross country and long distance coach.
I recall his tremendous sense of motivation and inspiration that was always transmitted to the runners that really wanted to succeed and not just play around with the sport.
Workouts always started with "shakeups" where you gently jogged at a slow place relaxing all of the upper body and torso to drain out the "knots" and the tension of everyday.
Then the runners (obviously all teenagers) would do an assortment of walking and running exercises: run the straightways and walk the curves for a more intense warmup. Depending upon the runner's conditioning, there would be 440's 880's and a mixture of endurance exercises.
I have his original handwritten notes.
