Thread: materials needed to create training program

    Re: materials needed to create training program

    yeah I've been lucky with that, I kept all my downloads still on the original laptop which itself I haven't updated lol I have a lot of videos and papers on that thing. Good Job I work in IS and know what Im doing.... Ish

    SO I haven't had much degregation.. But yeah truth is data degrades, each time you save or move a digital item it will have some "dithering" which effectively adds noise but allows the file to be smaller (its how MP3 is created)

    When I graduated HS, I was a a 22.65 (FAT) and 50.6 (hand-timed) guy.

    I came back to track at 25 and trained with a club that did the old school stuff. After those two years, my PRs were 7.28 / 22.99 / 51.58 indoors and 11.39 /22.47 / 50.22 outdoors.

    At age 27, I began training myself in accordance with Charlie's guiding principles. By 30 years old, my PRs were 7.06 / 22.42 / 50.15 indoors and 10.81 / 21.69 / 49.79 outdoors.

    Those times are far from spectacular compared to some of the folks on this board, but I truly believe that fully committing to Charlie's approach allowed me to realize my individual potential.
    That's cool Actuary400m.

I end up mentioning CF almost every day to another coach or athlete.
    Well, the word of mouth advertising is unmatched in a world where constant "sharing" can work against our enjoying of content.

    I too was a member of the original forum before the switch and have the 2202 forum review printed on my desk at home along with the CFTS and of course many other books and papers.

    This forum I hope never closes!!!

    Thanks AJ.

    Charlie never expected me to continue with the site. He forgot that I was who pushed him to do it in the first place.

    We can all be grateful that the content here has been a result of a great deal of push and perseverance and time and energy from both Charlie and I and all of you here on the site. Thank you.
