Perspective

I have really become a big fan of Jay Johnson (check out his videos, linked from the lower part of the sidebar here) and his blog. On top of his signature enthusiasm and clear intellectual curiosity, he consistently displays a genuine love for both the sport and helping all runners, not just the ones he coaches, find improvement. In a recent blog post, he included this video he shot with Renee Metivier Baillie, who is having a breakthrough year so far (count me among those who are excited to see what is yet to come for her), giving some valuable perspective on training and racing that all coaches and runners could learn from:

Renee Metivier Baillie discusses the importance of running by feel and how to use the watch to keep from running too fast. During the video she's getting some important, but painful, soft tissue work.




Also, a link to a blog from a world class runner who has interesting things to say:
