Why He Loves VDOT

VDOT O2 saves me hours every week by automatically adjusting VDOT and training paces after every race or time trial. Three years ago we started using the Dr. Jack Daniels’ methodology and VDOT to plan training for our cross country team and we saw immediate results. That very season we won our first Cross Country District Championship in 27 years. We continued, having now won three District Championships in a row, 1 Conference Championship, a 7th place finish at State and a new school record.
