My mother in law is having problems getting her time under a minute for the kilo on the track--anyone have any suggestions for new training aids for her? She has to go head to head with some Lithuanian in the mother in law games next month and is worried about not medaling.

Any suggestions appreciated!

Should she be shooting up coke, testosterone, EPO, or some sort of combonation of the three? Does freebasing these substances work even better?
Lessons from Eddie B?Humma Hah

For a price, I think Eddie B. is still teaching at the San Diego Velodrome.

The Killermeter, huh? Bitchin' torture. I'd say some 95-of-max HR VO2-max intervals right now, just a few, then rest and pick up regular training. No intervals this strenuous within 2 weeks of the race.

Eddie B. would get on his motorcycle and have the rider chase him. The motorcycle (aka "motor") is equipped with a bump bar, and the rider "pacing the motor" is expected to bump the bar with his front wheel. The pace is stepped up every lap until the rider is about ready to fall off. This should constitute a VO2-max interval.

This advice comes from one really mediocre beginning track rider, with a couple hours experience watching pros train.

Also some one who has no idea what the actual records are for this race. Mother-in-law breaking a minute!?!? Don't take the bait.
