- Your environment (people, location and time) can shape your training history and results
- Training age might be a significant factor for predicting performance, as well as performance outliers (potentially doping)
- Get the “boring” stuff done first: eating, sleeping and training consistently. This will cover almost everything you need to look after in terms of endurance performance.
- Relationships between people are the most important for long-term success of an athlete. Everything that can make those easier and help them, will help you as an athlete.
- Machines might soon be best at prescribing your next best session, but they can never replace the critical human relationship you have with your coach that appreciates your context.
