It is my privledge to know Jeff Messer and if you can find the time to listen to this podcast you’ll no doubt be happy that you invested that time. While Jeff has a Ph.D in Exercise Science, he’s also one of the best high school coaches in the country in his role as co-head coach of cross country at Xavier College Preparatory in Phoenix. I think that combination gives him a unique perspective on training and coaching.
Throughout the podcast we will be referring to a presentation Dr. Messer gave at the 2012 LA ‘84 Foundation Summer Cross-Country Clinic, titled “Exercise Physiology & Sport Nutrition Applications to Cross-Country Training.” To view the slides from that presentation, click here. It’s a tremendous resource.
I think everyone from high school coaches and athletes to masters level runners will benefit from the information in this podcast. Definitely of my favorite interviews thus far. Thanks Jeff!
