    Amazed by what i’ve read on this PDF article , it has a lot of good information about middle and long distance training and it shows the real philosophy of mo farah and galen rupp coach.

    To be honest i didn’t expect something like that to be here and thought it was a fake site but it’s not and prove me wrong.

    what i’ve learn is how the strength training can lead to an amazing result if worked with endurance training.

    Recommended for coaches who want to take a big step to the next level of there runner performances.

    Thank you runneruniverse
