Hi, runners!

Just wishing everyone a great week!

I think about you guys a lot. I'm sorry I am unable to interact much these days. I'll try to stop in more often, though I can't write long posts.

Take care,
Coach Schwartz

Re: Tinman for fast-twitchers

Your PRs: Half - 1:22 10K - 36:45 5K - 16:50 Mile - 4:48 800 - 2:05 400 - 56[/quote] --------------------------------- I do not think an assertion that you are a fast-twitcher is warranted. Remember, endurance takes much longer to develop than speed and anaerobic capacity. Thus, you may not have a l...

Re: Alternative to all-moderate approach

Modulating training intensity is highly effective vs training the same intensity daily.

Re: Physiologically, what is the aerobic threshold?

Wasserman developed the aerobic threshold term in 1973, as I recall. It was equivalent to the first ventilatory threshold. He later assigned it a set value of 2 mmol of lactate. This is my memory of studying this info in the 1980s.

Re: George Gandy - Question for Tinman

Seb ran 1:42.33 for 800m, if my memory is correct, while studying for his final exams at Loughborough University. Seb was about age 22, if I recall correctly. That summer, Seb broke the world record for the mile (I think he ran under 3:49) and the 1500m world record (around 3:32). I remember reading...

Re: thought on david rudisha's training

Seems to me like a balanced approach for a top 800m runner.

George Gandy was the brilliance behind Seb Coe’s ascension to world record ability.

Re: Lower mileage training

Give it a try and see how it goes. My guess is you'll do fine for a while because you have "money in the bank" from higher volume training in the past. However, you'll run out of steam at some point and have no choice but to boost volume again, at least for a few weeks. One good option may be to boo...

Re: increasing milage

Assuming you daughter has no structural or health issues, and assuming she has good nutrition and adequate sleep, and assuming she's not pushing her limits each day to currently run 38 miles per week, she should be able to add 12 miles per week within the next year and a half. Strategy number 1: slo...

Re: Tinman training taking over!

Sadly I found out on Monday that USA Triathlon organization in Colorado Springs stole my top distance runner, Morgan Pearson. They promised to take care of him financially and he took it because he's tired of struggling to make ends meet. USA Triathlon was unethical in my opinion. They secretly cour...

Re: Tinman training taking over!

One of the runners is borrowed from Brad Hudson's group. Trever Dunbar wanted to race on a team but Brad did not have a group attending. Trevor requested to run on my team, so I asked Brad for his permission to have Trevor join the Tinman Elite. He approved, so an official application was filed via ...

Re: Congratulation (again^^) Tinman!

I formed a team this autumn to run at the USATF Club National Cross Country race held in Lexington, Kentucky. They won, even without Drew Hunter. With him, it would have been even more powerful. Individuals on the team placed 4th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 14th. Morgan Pearson, who placed 4th was wa...

Re: Tinman training taking over!

Proud of my team, as they proved they are a force to be reckoned with! Three coaches from other teams filed a protest in an attempt to disqualify the Tinman Elite. (You make the call as to why they would file a protest.) They complained that Morgan, my top runner in 4th place, who led the race most ...

Re: Tinman's pacing for EZ/Very EZ paces "that day"

The more stress you apply on “hard” days the easier/slower you need to run on recovery run days. The biggest mistake made by runners is pushing the pace daily. Stop it! My mantra: Slow-down on easy days and your body will become fitter and faster on your fast days. Tinman runfastcoach@gmail.com
