2 kinds of runners. Which are you?
Let me kick off with a question for Antonio Cabral

The title (theme) of a major thread I led (way back in 2003) was, [Hadd's] Approach to Distance Training.

You and I have talked training over the years back and forth, and you've heard me remark that when I read the training of a particular runner, I always view it from my perspective.

By that I mean you can go see three different Medical Doctors and get three different opinions:
You go see a cardiac guy, he sees you purely as a sack of salty liquid with an internal pump...
You go see a surgeon, he ain't listening to you, he's only thinking where he's gonna put the knife in you...
You go see a proctologist... well, you get the idea.

So everybody sees things from their own perspective, three different Doctors all with their own particular viewpoint. Coaches are the same.

So Cabral, let's imagine some young punk comes boppin' up to you one day at the track, "Yo Yo, Mr C. I wants to train, what you got for me?"

I don't see you slapping a Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) on him, like I probably would, so is there such a thing as the Cabral Approach?
