I don't understand because, when I write something, there are d in people changing the thread in something regarding my person.
The situation is very clear :
a) I'm a professional coach,lecturer of IAAF, having personal experience with some of the best athletes, and, since I like athletics, I want to share what I know with people interested in this argument.
b) I don't have any advantage writing in this Website. Letsrun doesn't pay me, and I'm here fror giving all the informations I can give to everybody.
c) I don't like gossip. I speak about methodology, and, when I give you a training schedule of some top athlete, this is for supporting PRACTICALLY what I say in theorical way.
d) I'm not interested in APPEARING the coach of somebody, when I'm not. Sometime, other people ascribe to me to coach athletes that are not really with me. In this case, always I explained I'm the coach,also if sometime I know very well what they do in training, because I work with the real coach of the athlete. But, when I say something about coaching, this is true, and cannot be somebody living in another continent to say it's not. Incidentally, when somebody says that Ethiopian and Kenyan athletes are under the coaching of National coaches for all the season, this is a clear sign that he doesn't know what he's speaking about. National coaches in these two Countries DON'T KNOW WHO ARE THE ATHLETES AND WHAT THEY DO IN TRAINING, they go in charge during last 4 meeks only, many of them with the ARROGANCE to decide their training without speaking with the normal usual coaches. So, there are only two possibility : if who speaks like this is from another Continent, speaks about something doesn't know, so he's STUPID ; instead, if is from Ethiopia or Kenya, and knows very well the reality, he's a CHEATER for some personal reason.
f) As I speak about methodology, every people in the Website can chose IF READING or NOT what I write ; IF AGREEING or NOT what I say ; IF DISCUSSING or NOT what I explain.
I don't want, and I'm not, the keeper of the truth. Also, I continue to learn from everybody (also small kids), and for that reason I can teach. For speaking, the first step is to be able to listen.
At the end, the matter is not if Renato Canova is white or black, young or old, tall or small, if writes with a good English grammar or with bad English language (in this case, we can continue the thread using the fluent Italian of the most part of readers...), if earns money coaching or not, if African Federations like him or not, and so and so.
The matter is : WE SPEAK ABOUT METHODOLOGY, and we are ready to discuss about it with ALL people having interest, as Kaddafi already said.
If you want, you can intervene. If you don't want, shut up.
