Bob Timmons Should Have Read This Book!
"If you regularly pushed young men to the brink of exhaustion, they might build up an immunity to it." fascinating article on Bob Timmons in April 2009 issue of Runner's World by Ben Paytner
MY COMMENT: Too bad Timmons, who coached Jim Ryun in high school and college, never got to read Run Less Run Faster. His approach to training was absolutely brutal!
"Some runners just couldn't handle it. they got fried, or injured, or so exhausted that they finished dead last in the championships they'd trained for all season."
