Runner, exercise scientist and coach, Greg McMillan of McMillan Running knows what it takes to reach the top of one’s game! As official coaching of the 2010 GORE-TEX TransRockies Run, Greg and his team have been kind enough to share valuable training tips to help GTTRR participants get the most out of their experience. Every Monday from now until race time Greg willspoil us with some words of wisdom in the ‘McMillan tip of the Week’!
For the special second instalment of the ‘McMillan Tip of the Week’ see below!
“Specificity: Train on topography and surfaces consistent with what you’ll see on race day. Not everyone will have access to the kind of mountains you’ll see at TRR, but do your best to simulate race week conditions. Practice running hills, negotiating rocky, rutted trails and, perhaps, spending some vacation time in a place with altitude.”
