Training the Distance Runner’s Engine with Jay Johnson, Author of Consistency Is Key | Boulder Running Camps Founder | M.S. Kinesiology and Applied Physiology
Jay Johnson has coached collegiate, professional, and adult runners for two decades. He was a walk-on athlete at the University of Colorado in 1994. In 1998 he was the seventh runner on the varsity team chronicled in Chris Lear’s Running with the Buffaloes. That spring, he was named the Male Scholar-Athlete for the Athletic Department, while simultaneously earning his M.S. in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology.
Learn how to use Coach Jay’s car analogy – Build the Aerobic Engine, Strengthen the Chassis, and Rev the Engine – to reinforce why you’re doing what you’re doing and learn the three crucial workouts you need to be doing to build the aerobic engine. You’ll learn what they are and how to use them in your training. And you’ll learn why you need to use them in the order they’re presented.
We are providing this drill to give you ideas on how to enhance your current practice drills. The idea is not to implement it exactly as is, but rather to tweak it to make it fit your system.
