Outline of Deena Kastors Marathon Medal Method
I came across a very cool little article entitled "The Anatomy of a Medal." It is basically the outline of how Deena Kastor won the bronze medal in the Athens Olympics. It shows the goals and and the methods that Joe I. Vigil used in constructing her training. It shows how he used the 5 training intensities each week and also how he based his decision process. If you run long distance competitively or train an endurance athlete it is definitely worth a read. Enjoy.
