Just a quick thought on the recent article in runners world where four different styles of training and running were talked about. The article was called "Training secrets of the maverick coaches " One was to train fast, the next to train slow another coach talked of running less to focus on strength work and the final section talked of the benefits of the pose method of running. Now I found it very interesting to read about these different approaches, but here's my gripe, I just wonder how many people especialy newer runners will suddenly try these training methods and maybe train considerably different to how they do presently causing injuries, or just as harmful people may have self doubt over their own training methods especialy if they don't train with a club. I 've been running seriously for about 2 years and have obviously developed my own style I have been given advice from coaches and running mates and have used their experience and knowledge to progress. I feel that this article had way too much infomation, don't get me wrong i generaly find RW a good read, but maybe showing readers so many different approaches will sew too many seeds and stop people from just getting their heads down and running and running with confidence.
