Training Talk with Pat Connolly (Part 2)

On Wednesday I posted the first part of my interview with her, where we discussed her general philosophy, the importance of repetition, and specific training methods. In this part she continues to discuss mental training, the differences in coaching men and women. We finished by getting her thoughts on doping.

But the sport has evolved and so have her thoughts on the issue, which she describes below.
