Re: Training stimulus response: length and determination

Thanks for the response Tinman. I fully agree that having a coach is the way to go with respect to “not having to think about it.” I remember watching a short movie about Arthur Lydiard and in it the great Kiwi miler John Walker mentioned how much he enjoys being coached as it takes a huge amount of...
