Life in the Fast Lane ! Those that know me well know that I am passionate about the concept of perfecting one's running mechanics~for you...not for someone else or to copy someone else but there are certain fundamentals that we should aspire to both attempting perfect practice 'outside the lines' as well as 'inside the lines'...for my purposes of explanation outside the lines in running is equivalent to a golf participant seeking perfect practice on the driving range and thus
Life in the Fast Lane Consistent training - ‘Kismet’ & The Red Bulls !
I left off on in my blog on Thursday where I only had time to squeeze in 200 push ups for training on the day….it was a planned day off from running.
I strength trained at home with 200 push ups, 100 sit ups, 100 reverse crunches, 80 double leg V ups, extended new core routine, scissor abs, rows, triceps and biceps work with various weighted KB then stretch and out the door for a ten

Life in the Fast Lane A reprint from an original piece by Coach GP from November 2008 Honor and Privilege…… It is hard to know where to begin so I guess I will start at the beginning ☺ Taking the train into Manhattan and sporting my brand new Team Boomer Under Armour wardrobe so graciously sent to me by the Boomer Esiason Foundation earlier last week, I was looking forward to spending the day at the Team Boomer booth at the New York Marathon expo. Arriving around 11am at the
Life in the Fast Lane 'Life in the Fast Lane' blog reader I think you will enjoy the video embedded below~it is from a television show 'Kung Fu' that I used to watch as a young boy and it contains a great lesson in patience, peacefulness and seeing the big picture.... As a developing athlete specifically through the decade of the 90's as I was in my ascension as a competitive runner, one of my strengths was to be 'impatiently patient' in my short, mid and long term approach.
Life in the Fast Lane "I don't have time to strength train" is a complaint that I hear a great deal from my athletes and students ! My answer is always the same "If you want to succeed to the best of your ability as a runner, you cannot afford not to strength train"...but it does not have to take all day, nor should it.....but with few exceptions (and this includes busy Corporate exec types that spend hours on a plane each week) there are few people that cannot find a little

Forgive me for not being impressed when I hear someone has twenty-five or thirty years experience in a field- what does that mean exactly? I will give them credit for tenure or longevity but that does not make them trustworthy at their craft by default. Trust has to be earned by demonstration or by ratified testimonials. If someone has been playing the guitar badly for twenty five years then they have just become really good at playing a guitar badly- similarly with coaching
Life in the Fast Lane From my 'Life in the Fast Lane' blog from Monday, March 13th 2017 I declared my intent from that day forth to make Belayneh my friend and foe....he was at 2.06.50 and I was at 3.28, so how much could he improve and by how much could I close him down?...I knew wherever he was, in the hills or plains of East Africa, the mountains of South America, the European Forests or the great tracks and trails of the USA, I would track and pursue him relentlessly with
Life in the Fast Lane The Red Oval In 1999 (Rome) and 1996 (Zurich) respectively the Men's and Women's current world records were set by Hicham El Guerrouj and Svetlana Masterkova...their individual world records are seen here in the title of today's blog.... I made mention yesterday of my thought process about closing down Belayneh Dinsamo after nearly blowing off a run back in 1993 (a run that as it turned out proved to be a watershed moment in my running career- more on th
