    Hey Nobby - what's your take on Jack Fosters hill work (about 18:45 into the video).  Wink

      Cheers for the link. Great videos on there.

      "I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009

        Saw that vid when Jeff posted it on his blog.  Just wonderful stuff.  Though, running the shale-pit looked like an out-take from a Warren Miller movie.

         

        Now I'm off to hose down my legs.

        2014 Goals:  sub-3 Marathon 

        Current Status 06/19: Pelvic stress-fracture = 6-weeks of no running.

          Okay, gotta set up a field trip for my running club.  The scenery there will definitely inspire to a degree that the local scenery is not.

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

            'Like' the f out of that!  Thanks for the link.

              Great link! Thanks for posting. I love Jack Foster's attitude towards running.

                Good stuff.  That descent at the end is absolutely ridiculous... I don't think I'd be doing that without body armor, let alone shirtless with shorts.  

                 

                And I'm pretty sure the run through the geothermal area (Rotorua, perhaps?) is just for effect.  You'd have to really dig the smell of rotten eggs.

                  One of the best films on running I've seen. Beautiful images. Young Arthur. Great ending.

                  Thanks for posting. Cool

                    Our Running-Wizard was the official training program for 2012 Bloomsday.  That meant a lot to me personally.  I got Arthur Lydiard's home address there (from Joe Henderson) for the first time.  And I became a friend with the Olympian for the first time (Don Kardong) and I recently reminded him that I saw "On The Run" for the first time at Bloomsday in 1981.  He vaguely remembered.  It's a very well-done and a fun video.  In regards to Jack Foster's downhill running; I would not recommend it to anybody!! ;o)  Well, not for "running".  But, hey, it seems like a lot of fun, ain't it?  I climbed up Mt. Fuji back in 1979.  You start heading up at 5PM and basically walk all through the night.  There's a small hut and you take a couple of hours "nap" there and start heading back up again at like 3AM.  You get up the top before sunrise--and you get to see the sunrise at the top of Mt. Fuji!!  It's a really cool experience.  But on the way back, you basically come straight down and it takes like a few hours!!  When I saw Foster flying down, that reminded me of that.  Great piece.

                      I can't thank you enough for posting that video here.  I am a huge Lydiard fan, met him for the first time just a few days before he died, here in Dallas.  Very inspring.  Spareribs

                        That's the one Greg McMillan and Robert Vaughan organized.  Would you care to maybe send me a picture (if you took one with the Old Man) and/or share the story?  Would love to include at Lydiard Foundation website.  Send me a PM if you don't mind.  Thanks!

                          That scene at the end, when he's flying down that hill.  That's how running makes me feel.

                            We used to run down the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado like that.  Or roll down.  Safer than what he was doing, I'd say.
