“You Must Have Guiding Principles Of Training…”

Runners in the UK were treated last month to a little in-person coaching from Dr. Jack Daniels at his latest VDOT Coaching Clinic. One of our favorite takeaways from the weekend was this quote from Jack:

“You must have guiding principles of training, not copy what works for the best athletes.”

This is the essence of Daniels’ Running Formula. So many coaches in history are recognized for the incredible success of one or a few athletes. What about everyone else they coached? When utilizing the principles outlined in Jack’s book you see broad success, not just with a few individuals.
