Laid Up and Blogging

i’m laying around recovering. although i heard each day you should feel considerably better, today seems a lot like yesterday. i can just barely get up off the couch on my own. it’s one of those things where you can do it, but it hurts, so i probably shouldn’t. anyway, being couch/bed ridden this gives me some time to blog.

the last few weeks have also given me some time to reflect about my own training and how i coach other athletes (more to come on this one). on vacation i reread nutrition periodization for endurance athletes, and started reading daniel’s running formula.

karl meltzer and scott mason ( have posted some awesome trail running tip videos on “crashing is part of the deal”. true dat.

karl also just did an interview with endurance planet, good stuff:
