I’m fortunate to know Dr. Jeff Messer. He’s a great coach and a unique mind in the running world. Here are his thoughts on ice baths for runners from his presentation, “Endurance Training: Current Science and Application to Program Design” which he presented at the August 3rd, 2013, Boulder Running Clinics event. Dr. Messer’s full presentation, along with five other presentations, will be available for sale later this month at BoulderRunningClinics.com.
So excited to share this with you – the inaugural Boulder Running Clinics. Below is the synopsis of the clinic. FREE NIKE SHOES if you register by July 15th. While the clinic is aimed at high school coaches, as you can tell from the presentation titles, all runners will benefit from the information presented in this day long clinic.
Dr. Messer will present “Alberto Salazar’s Method: My Humble Attempt to Apply that Method to High School Cross-Country/Track and Field” and “Endurance Training: Current Science and Application to Training Program Design.”
Dr. Hansen will present “The Science of Training the Core with Practical Applications for Distance Runners” and “Endurance Training with an Injury Prevention Mindset.”
Jay Johnson will present “Is Periodization Dead? Metabolic Considerations and Neuromuscular Considerations and Peaking” and “Planing a Session, a Microcycle, a Mesocycle and a Macrocycle.”
Every participant that signs up before July 15th will receive a free pair of Nike training shoes. All participants will be given hard copies of all slides and will be sent, via email, a .PDF version of all slides. The clinic will be recored in HD: once the video is edited, all attendees will be sent a special code to download the content. Lunch will be provided and there will be door prizes!
We will have an informal social in the evening following the clinic, location and time TBA.
