After a big fourth place finish at the Wisconsin adidas Invitational, Mick Byrne’s preseason outlook on a new era of Badger running seems more accurate than ever. In episode two of INSIDE Wisconsin, we take a look at the new faces that comprise the Badgers and speculate who, and if, they can fill the storied shoes.
14 consecutive Big Ten Conference Championships. 40 consecutive years at the NCAA XC Championships. Can the streak(s) continue? Take a look INSIDE Wisconsin to see if the Badgers have what it takes to keep thundering away at the national level.

BYU XC coach, Ed Eyestone, talks in depth about the types of workouts his runners do from summer on. He discusses incorporating strength work early in the fall and then adjusting workouts from there throughout the season.
BYU coach, Ed Eyestone, discusses how athletes need to push as far to their potential as they possibly can. To do so, an athlete may have to push his body to injury to see how hard he can train and how much he can physically handle. In the end, an athlete has to take some risks and “walk as close to the edge as possible” with his training to get to the next level.
Coach Eyestone discusses how he manages his team and how he determines when to race his athletes. Eyestone has his work cut out for him because he has to alter his training progressions to accomodate runners who are recently returning from mission trips. On top of this, he has to be patient when deciding whether or not to redshirt an athlete.
Mark Wetmore discusses having to compromise between having his runners compete for collegiate accolades in the immediate present and/or future versus holding his athletes back from specific events so that they can compete on Olympic and World teams and on the professional level. There’s a tight line to walk, and overall, he has to find the perfect balance that helps the Colorado Buffaloes in the long run.
Mark Wetmore discusses measuring and managing a runner’s lactate threshold. He then talks about specific workouts that aim to get a runner to a certain level of exertion to test his lactate threshold.
Sophomore Jordan Lavender of the Virginia track and field program will be talking with teammates throughout the school year about their training, latest performances and much more. This week, she interviews graduate student Catherine White on the upcoming Wisconsin adidas Invitational, what motivates her and more.
Mick Byrne describes how he trains the defending NCAA champions, Wisconsin Badgers. He describes the things that are important for individual runners when they train, and he gives insight on his personal training philosophy as a coach.
Wisconsin Mick Byrne talks about the message he gives to the guys which sums up to be enjoying the pursuit of the goal and living the life style.
Mark Wetmore talks about how he continues to learn and progress as a coach. He observes, studies and experiments with the CU buffs formula to make his team productive year in and year out.
Coach Mark Wetmore discusses the importance of controlling efforts on hard long days and how it can negatively affect the rest of an athletes’ season if overdone.
NAU has a great young group of runners who are going to be contributing to the success of the team this year. He believes that they will progress and work to peak at the national meet -an event he believes his team can place top 10, if not make a run at the podium. Heins is quick to give credit to the successful tradition that exists at NAU as well as training at altitude in Flagstaff.
At NAU, Eric Heins doesn’t really push for blood testing his athletes to gauge their health. Instead of opting for a blood test for a given athlete who may not feel well competing at altitude, he simply recommends this supplement to improve his/her overall health and performance.
Coach Heins talks about “finding that sweet spot” as runner. He discusses how he pushes for gradual increases in mileage from his runners but pinpoints a specific example where one of his most talented athletes never ran more than 40 miles/wk. Each athletes has/her right amount to where he/she is going to get out of the workout what is necessary to be successful.
Coach Heins adjusts training regiments for his incoming freshman runners. He mentions having his athletes put in 65-70 miles a week before coming to school, and then as they get to Flagstaff, he brings them down to about 55 m/wk. Heins goes in depth about the struggles that many athletes encounter when 1st training at altitude, but he points out that these struggles end up paying dividends for his athletes in the future.
NAU Head Coach, Eric Heins, discusses adjusting to altitude, in particular, how altitude training affects the body. He points out how his runners get used to hurting while training at NAU, but doing so gives them a mental edge when competing at sea level against the competition.
New Diana Boys 2011 Cross Country Team finishes with the best season in school history, winning a third consecutive district championship, first ever regional championship, and state runner-up.
