Here is some of Boaz’s training leading into Stanford. He trained for some of the winter with Alberto Salazar. So, if he is in good shape, it is from Alberto (hurdle drills, weights etc…), his old coach John Goodridge, and from some of this training.
After competing in the 10km at Stanford he ran 28:07 for 3rd but could only close in 64 sec. losing by quite a bit in the last 400m. It showed he lacked lactate tolerance and the ability to recruit fibers full of lactate so I used speed endurance and strength endurance to improve the ability of fiber recruitment under acidosis. He had done only 1 workout under me — a 1600m 4:15 and 10 x 400m’s 63 60sec. rec. and said he felt heavy, so the race told us a lot. His Kick against Lagat and Vaughn was much better in 58 over the last 400m — but I still think there is a lot of room for improvement.
