"Don't ever step onto the track unless you plan on
Plus we document and analyze the great 4 minute high school milers, Liquori and Ryun. How they trained and raced in high school.
New 3rd Edition 2016
The previous two editions of this book left off at tapering for the big race. Now we have what to do on race day. We spent a lot of time on analyzing past races of the mile and 1500m, plus we've interviewed some of the great ones that broke 4 minutes in high school - Marty Liquori, Tim Danielson, Alan Webb and high school teammates of Jim Ryun. And from this we've created the Three Laws of Racing the Mile. Hope you enjoy and find beneficial Marty and Jim's high school workouts.
arrived last evening and I could not put it down. I am very
impressed with the time you must have spent putting this together.
What a valuable tool for track coaches."
and its not just for the boys...
I can say
that after reading Chuck Bridgman's book it not only has changed my
running but it helped me obtain a state title like I always wanted, which
is why I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to improve their
running or become a state champion.
Here's what they did, what they didn't do. How they trained and how they raced. No theories, no opinions. Just the facts. Just the truth.
We start in 1964 with a runner who played high school football and basketball and then set two state meet records in the mile and half mile on the same day. We'll finish in the new Jesse Owens stadium with the only runner to win three 1600m titles. In between we talk to Olympic gold medal winners and others that didn't start running track till they were juniors.
By finding out what the winners did, this book looks to answer the question, what does it takes to win the state mile. Workouts, dual meets, winter running, tapering, eating, weight training. What's important, what's not.
Champions That Won 24
Book that documents the Ohio High School
The four things you need to win the Ohio high school state 1600m title are blind courage, unshakable faith, physical ability and the correct training program. This book cannot help you with the first three. However, through interviews with high school 1600m state champions, analysis of how these state 1600m champions trained this book will provide you with the training program to win the state 1600m with a 4:10 time.
We'll try and answer the question that coaches have argued over for years; is it natural talent and will, or hard work and the right program that makes a champion.
In the end we take what we learned and put together a detailed five month training routine that should produce a 4:11 1600m and win you the State Division I mile.
"This book is amazing and as a fan of Ohio track it is a must read for coaches and athletes."
New 2016 third edition has updated workouts and also includes data from 2008 and 2009 state champ who read the book his junior year and went on to win the state title twice.
