On this show, I talk a lot about the mechanics of training and the X's and O's of each period in training. In many ways, that's the easy part. It's the what-to-do in training part including the workouts and long runs and miles per week. How to do it is a little harder, however.
In this episode, I breakdown the seasons of a training cycle and talk about how to approach each one in terms of your mental approach and preparation.
