Staying Healthy and Risk


I really like Henk’s interview on Speed Endurance, as well as the latest from Kebba Tolbert. As programs improve with record keeping I think we will see what programs lead to Rome with less bumps and bruises. My problem with any program touted to be sacred, is that it’s likely to work with that coach and that environment with THOSE athletes. It’s good to survey programs but copying too much is dangerous. At the end of the day we need to ask how often are our athletes hurt and competing at the last meet of the season? I look at that element more than anything because having a chance is the first step. Now just showing up under prepared and not competitive is another ball of wax, but this simple view is what we plan to take next year in getting athletes better. At the end of the day you need to be at your best healthy and prepared, something far from easy.
