This is a great example of why Brosnan is one the best distance coaches ever. He has explained many times coaching is watching and being with your athletes day in and day out and making changes on the fly. This is what he has says over and over. Him NOT being with Loe and Lex and actually coaching them has hurt them a little this fall. Especially yesterday. They didn't have their coach all season that has guided them to an almost perfect season last fall.
The rumor is Leo and Lex will be back with Sean Brosnan thisWinter/ spring running unattached for the rest of the year or until June. Even Sean Brosnan being a coach at UCLA he is allowed to coach unattached athletes and it seems like a smart thing to do for Leo and Lex. I'm sure he has influence on their current workouts, but not being there everyday and watching them has lead to poor choices, like the very early hard race effort they had yesterday too early into the race. It just shows what a brilliant coach Sean Brosnan is when working first hand with athletes. If the rumor is true they will not be running for Newbury Park this winter/ spring and running unattached I'm personally excited to see records go down once again.
