Blake Boldon is currently training in Colorado Springs, CO and racing professionally across the country. Recently, he joined The Run S.M.A.R.T. Project Coaching Staff bringing a broad range of coaching and personal experience to the table. We got a chance the other day to ask him a few questions and gain some insight as to how he juggles both roles.
Run SMART: Two weeks ago you finished 6th in the 3k at the U.S. Indoor Championships up in Boston, MA. What was your approach mentally going in and were you satisfied with the result? Also, how does this race fit into your gameplan for the year?
Blake Boldon: It was my first 3k since last year’s championships and it was my first time on a 200 meter track since that race too. Going in I knew that I wasn’t as race sharp as some other guys might be but I’ve put in a huge block of quality training and I know my fitness is good.
