Slow and steady, strong and stable.
The 6th chapter in Charlie Spedding' autobiography "From last to first" is called "the beer drinker's guide to sports psychology". I read it for the second time last night and there's some useful stuff on self image, mindset, target setting/measuring and aiming for 'optimal' not 'hard' training, observations he made whilst in a bit of a rut 10 years into his top-level running career at 28. Some food for thought given in the next 5 years he went on to a Bronze in the 1984 Olympic marathon.
