In this fourth episode of Orreco’s ‘Optimized’ podcast called ‘‘Olympic Dreams”, Marc Cleary is joined by Mark Rowland, Head Coach of Oregon Track Club Elite team, Olympic medal winning athlete and Orreco client.
Marc and Coach Rowland discuss OTC’s current high altitude training camp in Arizona on the lead up to this year’s Olympic qualifiers, alongside a discussion on the impact Covid-19 has had on their training program.
Talk then turns to Marks own career and how his Olympic experience influences his coaching today and his role in facilitating theOlympic dreams of the athletes in his charge.
They also focus on how monitoring plays a important role in understanding the athlete but also in assessing the direction and impact of the program and how from the coaches perspective, monitoring can also hold him accountable while avoiding paralysis by analysis.
