Highlighting the difference between training for power-endurance and training for peak power while still promoting cross-training and extensive use of circuits seems to be one thing that really sets this place apart from every other sites.

I'll add one. My daughter, Lindsay, a freshman shot putter (and Homecoming Princess) qualified for state on her last throw Thursday. Her sister, Kelly, got knocked out of qualifying for state on the last throw Thursday.

As Dad and Head Coach and friend of PM...

Get Back Up.

Good one, Dan.

My 7th grader qualified for district finals as the 5th seed by winning our dual meet last Wednesday. She threw 27' 6". I don't think it was her last throw, but it was good enough anyway. She did this after tweeking her knee in the hurdles during the first meet.

I like the "get back up" advice.

'Get Back Up' is great advice...better than 'Never Let Go'...because you never know what sort of complete idiot will take that advice too far.

This is a little overdone, but this site, more than others, abides by the phrase: "Absorb what is useful..." And the last part "...and make everything uniquely your own." Fits perfectly. No problems with the generalist, but also no problems with the specialist. If you want to be included into the mix, all ya got to be is effective! No Kool Aid or mind meld, just kick ass, be strong, be fast, and translate that to your field of endeavor: the platform, gym. court, field, track, road, or battlefield. Oh, and you could say "shit" here! Not that I would, but if needed...I could.

The "Get back up" reminds me of a line from Batman Begins..."Master Bruce....why do we fall down...so we can learn to pick ourselves back up"....so like we say in hockey, the more you get knocked down the quicker you learn to get back up and into the play again....

I like that the main focus here is Results....pure and simple....coming from many different backgrounds, philosophies and view points....stressing long term health in proportion to immediate performance....

That and they serve Guinness at the PM mixers on Fri night......"Ron...get back up on the bar stool and have another pint!"
