Snell was characterized by his incredible strength and power. He seemed to be able to run forever, and when racing, to always maintain his top speed, particularly in the last 100 meters. These qualities can be attributed to his training as well as his talent. An athlete of legendary New Zealand coach Arthur Lydiard, Snell regularly included the long-distance running that was contrary to popular middle-distance training of his day. In fact, his training was even more voluminous than that of many of today’s competitive marathoners.

In a stride workout, warm-up by jogging slowly for 10 to 30 minutes, then begin to alternate 15- to 30-second strides with 45- to 60-second jogs. 30 Creating Leg Turnover and Raw Speed A great advantage of this workout is that it does not require a track and can be done on trails, grass, or roads. I start runners with 10 or 15 strides and gradually increase the number to 15 to 25. Remember to jog slowly between each stride to allow full recovery.

S. Olympic Marathon Trials qualifying mark. For some reason, after a personal-best performance, certain nutty runners think they can continue to improve on their training.
