So my goal is to update my blogs bi-monthly. I have no true reason why I can't honestly do it more often except I think it would get stale.
I've just completed my hiatus from coaching and begin my more "normal" schedule. As with coaching normal is a very loose word, because a true coach has to change and adapt on the fly. It is truly finding a balance between being grounded and having the ability to change.
So for me during a hiatus I dream of new things to do for the new year. How to improve from the previous year, see what worked, what needs tweaking, and what challenges lie ahead. I also educate myself. I try to read and discuss or look at notes I wrote down during the previous year from other coaches and athletes I've had the pleasure of speaking with.
The three books I read this year were the following:
Practical Programming for Strength Training
I always like to either use the books for references or refresh my memory from what I learned years ago in Grad school. Plus times are a changing so you need to stay up with the latest and greatest.
So on Monday Sept 30th we start the quest for Poland 2014 and for some the quest for Rio 2016. We have a great stable of athletes: WLJ 7.25m,6,91m,6,67; MLJ 8.29,8.21,8.19,8.14; WTJ 14.16m,14.06,13.89; MTJ 17.70,16.96,16.85,16.66,16.64;
I'd like to say we have one of the finest groups in the world. So please pray for our growth and success, until next time,c
Head Coach and founder of Maximum Velocity Athletics.
