"So that is the basic plan. Nothing fancy. Just a lot of hard work and convincing yourself by matching things that you've done before that you're as fast as you've ever been, and you're stronger than you've ever been because you're doing more work, more volume." -Alberto Salazar

I'm pretty sure AS has been a QOTD recipient before, but he deserves it again. It can be easy to get caught up in the newest training fad, but really training does not need to be that complicated. Just put in the work, and see the results. This doesnt mean it is easy, of course, but it does mean success can be had with relatively simple methods.

The quote came from an interview with Kara Goucher and her coach, AS. The interview focuses on Kara's return to competition after having a baby, and what some of her goals are for the upcoming season. Meanwhile, AS tells how he plans to bring her back and get her ready for the Boston Marathon.
