Many talk about alternative training. Two of my favorite stories come from Ron Daws, the US Olympian who ran the 1968 marathon and Emil Zatopek, who won gold in 1948, and 1952 and, then ran the marathon in 1956.

Ron Daws had to get a workout it, but he was having a challenge with the time. He had some old clothes to put on to workout and so, he ran (it was bitterly cold outside) up and down the stairs in his office space to get in his run, dried off in the old clothes, and went back to work. He got his run in.

Emil Zatopek had promised to do the laundry one evening, so he filled the tub with clothes, put in the laundry soap and water, and ran on the clothes, in the tub for two hours!

Enjoy the workout!
