Coaching history :
I’ve worked with some exceptional coaches throughout my career, that has shaped much of my training views :
1991-1995 and 1998-1999 Per Halle (7th Olympics 1972 5k)
1995-1996 Joe Newton when at York High School (legendary York high school coach , first high school US Olympic track coach, his coaching career documented in the movie : The Long Green Line (IMBD)
1996-97 and helping 1999-2001 Peter Coe (father of Seb Coe)
1997-1998 Sam Bell when at Indiana University (coach at Indiana University, coached Bob Kennedy for 6 years to the first non-African under 13:00 as well as 3.31 1500 meter runner Jim Spivey)
2000-2002 Frank Evertsen (worked at the Norwegian Olympic team and wrote his doctorate on threshold training )
2003 Eystein Enoksen (professor at the NIH – the Norwegian school of Sports)
2003-2006 Leif Olav Alnes (current coach of Karsten Warholm. Involved mostly with sprint training but also with training structure and coaching)
On the right side menu you will find a number of selected links to results/statistics plus other interesting sites on the web.
I have tried to limit the number to a few, with possibility to go to general link pages for more information (click on “Various links” on the left side menue for links to other athletes pages, sports injuries, magazines etc.)
I have limited the number of links to ensure that it is easy to find the very best sites on the different runningtopics out there.
Update 2011 :
I’m about to add a variation of running blogs and at the moment I’m locating them here. They are all quality ones, of runners on practically all levels. Enjoy 🙂
First suggestion is David Tiefenthaler’s site running tips site over at tips4running.com . David was one of the guys who reviewed and helped me with the final touch of the 100 day marathon plan you see the video from on the main page of mariusbakken.com (you can find this program over at marathon training schedule ) He gives some excellent running tips from beginners runners to the more advanced ones.
