"A taste of what life is like for an elite athlete and how much work is needed to get you to the top."
In 2012, Run Gum CEO, Nick Symmonds, went on to run his personal best of 1:42:95 for 800 meters. Nick's PB also placed him 5th at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and still happens to be the third fastest ever run by an American. Four years later, Nick is ready to unveil the steps he took to get there.
Immediately following his best race ever, he sold over 3,000 hard copies of his daily training log, which included his daily workouts and notes. It has since sat in archives. However, after a few years of weekly requests from aspiring athletes, their coaches and fans of the sport about it, he decided to bring it back. This time as an ebook and for FREE.Click Here to Get Your Free Download of Nick Symmonds' 2012 Training Log.
