Description
Abe Alvarado has raced the 800m three weeks in a row and he is starting to feel it. After a second place finish he has notched two consecutive victories in opposite fashion. In this episode we dissect each race, take deep dive into his training, learn was race day is actually like (hint: there's much more it that than you may think), and talk about pacing his progress so he is ready to peak at the right time of the year.  The Road to the Trials Podcast is presented by COROS Wearables – makers of Performance GPS Watches that help athletes train to be their best.
