"Your training should be enjoyed, not just endured".
"If winning is the only thing that rescues athletes from "wasting their time training," then there are a lot of unhappy people wasting their time running".
"If you want to train faster, prove you're fit enough by racing faster first".
"Consistent training is the key to success, and trying to set a record in an interval workout is not the best way to achieve consistency. Use the interval workout to meet your long-term goals with as little effort as possible; don´t overtrain".
"Whatever type of training program you decide on, follow one that is enjoyable enough (or at least rewarding enough) that you will stay with it long enough to find out how good you are capable of becoming. Be able to look back and say you enjoyed the training as much as you enjoyed the outcome of a well-run race. That is the real sign of a good training program".
Daniels Training Log
"Daniels' Running Formula" indeholder en masse tabeller med specifikke træningshastigheder og intensitetspoints. For at gøre det mere anvendeligt i det daglige har jeg oversat det til beregninger i et regneark og integreret det i min træningsdagbog, som jeg kalder Daniels Training Log.
Ideen er at man indstiller træningsdagbogen efter sin præstationsevne, så man kan forholde sig til sin egen standard.
Jack Daniels opererer med et teoretisk kondital som han kalder VDOT. I Daniels Training Log kan man indstille hver uge efter ens aktuelle VDOT-værdi og måle træningen ud fra den.
