Down with all this structured group training and pacing crap. We need more Americans running all out and going for it. All these 1:00-03 HM guys running 2:11-2:14 is a waste of talent.


Here is my question: How do these guys expect to run fast if the longest tempo they are doing before the race is like 15-16 miles? How do you expect to run 10 more miles at that pace when you haven't trained for it?

Ask my marathoners. The best so far 2.07:38 and the others 2.08.43- 2.10.44. They just do LT-intervals 3000m at longest and special long runs with 10-40 min fast part in intervals or sustained. It really works! They are a living proof. :)
