You never know where or when you will get training advice and information. Yesterday I was listening to one of my favorite programs on NPR, The Splendid Table (splendidtable.publicradio.org/) with Lynne Rosetto Kasper. The discussion was salt. They said that if the recipe called for salt and the proper amount was blended in then you did not notice the salt. However if too much slat was included or if it was excluded you noticed it immediately. What a great metaphor for the blend of the ingredients in training. If a training component is there and blended properly, included at the correct time in the process you never notice, everything is in sync. However if a component is out of proportion, i.e. to much speed, not enough strength then you notice immediately. If a component is left out then the whole training program is affected and you will know it. So don’t forget the salt, but remember to include just the right amount, not too much or too little and know when to add it in the cooking process.
