“When we start out, the fundamentals and basics are necessary to give us a base of support, not unlike a base in running.

But as we grow as coaches, the innovations in training shifts to seeing patterns in ideas that may not come directly from our specific discipline.”

Steve Magness, author of the Science of Running
