The late Oscar Wilde once said that consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative. Wilde was not a runner.

Month after month of healthy consistent training trumps short term large jumps in volume or intensity nine times out of 10.

For the second year in a row, I was fortunate enough to attend the USA Track & Field Podium Education Project in Las Vegas in December. For those who remember my winter column a year ago, you remember the P.E.P. brings together top coaches from around the country and around the world to present their latest research as well as trial and error based coaching lessons from their athletes who have either seen the Olympic podium or are currently seeking that podium.

Like many of you, I spent a few hours in August in front of the television watching the Summer Olympics from Beijing. While my natural bias was towards Track and Field, I also marveled at Michael Phelps’s accomplishments in the pool, the perfection of the Chinese divers, the United States victories in men’s and women’s basketball and countless other winners in such sports as Field Hockey, Table Tennis, Team Handball, Rowing, and Judo.

Maybe you’ve been running for a couple or years of maybe you’ve been running for 20. No matter how long you’ve been a “runner,” think back to when you first got involved in the sport.

Working full time at a center designed by and for long distance runners provides an interesting view into the world and lives of runners and the sport of running at large --along with a unique historical perspective being that I am almost a full generation removed from my competitive days.
