ERIC HEINS: Technique | Adjusting to Altitude

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.
