About BookRags. Walt McClure used cross country as a strength builder for his challenging winter training.
According to McClure, "The winter workout schedule was designed to bring the performer to his peak at the end of May without being too strenuous or monotonous for the maturity of a high school student. Pretty simple, huh? The devil, they say, is in the details. Walt had the knowledge that was necessary to develop a talent like Prefontaine. Each cycle was further subdivided into three two-week blocks. In each two-week block, Pre concentrated on one of his three goal distances: half-mile, mile, or two-mile.
Thus, in each six-week cycle, all three distances were given equal attention. A similar schedule was followed during the training blocks which focused on the mile and , using shorter, faster intervals. Pre was fed a steady diet of track intervals, three times a week for 30 weeks. Every track workout had the same warm-up: one mile jog, followed by 8 x at about 16 seconds with rest jogs. No interval was longer than yards.

If the Date Pace called for a two-mile second pace , Pre was asked to run laps at second pace. Then he would need to make up the second deficit in the last half-mile.
Walt believed this type of testing had two advantages: "First, the runner is running within himself in a relaxed manner and several seconds slower than current Date Pace. Second, the runner seems to build self-confidence with the ability to accelerate the pace in later stages of the race.
By mid-April, Pre was ahead of schedule in his two-mile training. Walt sent me two photos of himself with Pre. In each of the photos, taken six years apart and , their admiration for each other literally jumped off the page.
