I opted for a new track coach – Steve Moreno, The Personal Running Coach. I met him last week at a Triathlon Forum at Tri-Zone to benefit Talmadge Atkins, a great young triathlete with an affinity for swimming. (Please read more about his story at www.teamtalmadge.com.)
I asked Steve during last week’s Q & A session something that’s been on my mind for quite awhile, “Is it possible to bring your times down to where they were when you were younger? Or is there a formula to determine how much speed is realistic to achieve based on those glory days times?”
In unison, Steve and my swim coach, Beth, answered, “Oh, you can bring those times down to where they were – or pretty close.” Of course, it’s going to take some time.
Sounds unbelievable, doesn’t it? And yet, with the right training and some faith in the process, who knows? I may just recapture some of my youth.
