To Slattery, Wetmore says, “Enough for today. ” Wetmore smiles and says, “Does it taste like pennies? ” The others keep running around the perimeter. Although laboring more than his compatriots, Friedberg hangs tough with Batliner and Goucher up front. His summer of training appears to be paying dividends, and at this early juncture, he appears a lock to make the squad.
In the process, he is establishing a coaching legacy of his own. Wetmore was introduced to Lydiard methods when he read his book Running the Lydiard Way. ” Lydiard’s emphasis on long-term development with marathon training, coupled with his relentless development of an aerobic foundation, and his system of periodization are all concepts that Wetmore employs in designing his plan. Lydiard taught Wetmore two principal ideas: 1. Anaerobic and interval training is overrated. 2. You must continuously develop your aerobic capacity—and pick a time to run well.
After a long summer of distance runs up and down Boulder’s trails, they too showed they were ready to get to work.

MaryBeth, the team’s equipment manager and assistant throws coach, enters the circle to have a quick word with Wetmore. The university has a contract with Nike, and each runner receives a pair of Terra Humma training shoes, cross country racing flats, track flats, shorts, long and short sleeve T-shirts, sweatpants, sweatshirts, and even wristbands and a headband.
