Ultimately in training the truth is what works. All the theory in the world may not translate into results. It is up to the coach and athlete to figure out what works for them and then to systematize it so it will produce consistent reproducible results in the competitive arena. It may not look like what everyone else is doing and that is OK, because the proof of the pudding is in the outcome. Think what would have happened if Dick Fosbury had yielded to conventional wisdom or if Roger Bannister had listened to naysayers. Each coach and athlete needs to seek ?The Truth? for them.
