462 Marathons and Business 6

Coach Davis had realized that Jake seemed to have an impossible dream of running in various sports at the Olympics to win several gold medals, and Coach Davis knew that Jake was talented, but that was impossible to achieve.

Even though the shorter distance runs did not require so much resistance, they did require a lot of muscle effort, and also a lot of agility and strength, not to mention that if Jake wants to participate in various modalities he will not have time to rest.

Jake was also realizing that he had been very innocent thinking that he could one day win all athletics in track racing, he had never tried to run 100 meters and 200 meters and thought it would be easy because it was a short distance.

But now Jake realized that it would be impossible to do that, not to mention that like Coach Davis, the best athletes in the world want to win 100 meters and 200 meters, maybe when he had more than 60 points in all physical statistics he could take it to compete in all modalities.

Even so, if it was possible, Jake still wanted to try the 1500 meters and 800 meters, so that he could at least fulfill part of his dream and win 5 gold medals in just one Olympics if he did that Jake would be satisfied.

\"I saw that you still had the ability to run at this pace, so tomorrow we will increase your training intensity and you will run at a pace of 2 minutes and 34 seconds per km.\"

\"I think you can run at that pace and so you can guarantee that you can reach the Olympic record, and I also think that this is currently your maximum limit, after the next Olympics we can train to try to break the world record in this sport too.\"

Jake agreed with Coach Davis that maybe that was his current limit, after all, he was feeling a lot of pain in his leg and was very tired after running the 5,000 meters for the first time, so Jake didn't think he could take much more.

What made Jake happy was that after just over an hour he had almost completely recovered from running the 5,000 meters, that's where Jake's strong resistance helped a lot if he further improved his agility and strength, Jake thought that these 5,000 meters and 10,000 meters modalities would not be so difficult anymore.

Now it was a few weeks before the Athens marathon and Jake had to finish the 5,000 meters training the next day because after that he would start changing the training, he would run the 45 km one day, the other 10 thousand meters twice and on another day run the 5,000 meters 2 times too.

And Jake planned to continue this training until the NBA games returned and so he would know that he would have to save his resistance for NBA games that were 48 minutes long and sometimes happened 3 times in a week.

Jake kept training every day in his imagination training against much better opponents than he did, in these training sessions Jake was testing different types of ways he could play in a game.

In some training sessions, he only made three-point shots and made many assists, in other training he hardly tried three-point shots and only tried mid-range shots and layups in addition to the assists.

The hardest thing was when he tried to just do layups and dunks, even with his superior agility, the opponents managed to do the steal and block in several moves, but in all his training there had to be a lot of assists that was much easier playing with quality teammates.

Jake knew that he would shine on the Los Angeles Lakers team as a PG having teammates like Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal, he could make several assists and his teammates would definitely score.

Not to mention when Jake did three-point shooting training at night on the basketball court that was at his house, Jake did this training almost every day because that was how he got the stamina bars and it was also good for that he could relax.

The other day it was Jake's day to know if he could train at the pace that Coach Davis suggested for him, Coach Davis arrived early because he was also excited about it, a few years after becoming Jake's coach he could feel that he was finally managing to teach Jake some things.

He taught Jake several techniques to run correctly and helped him with various training to increase resistance, of course, Coach Davis thought he had helped Jake improve his resistance because he didn't know Jake had the system.

After doing the warm-up exercises Jake started running, he was excited because if he could run at this pace he could say he was ready for the next Olympics, then he could just train normally and have more confidence that he could win.

After running for 3 km Jake could feel that he was trying too hard and he could feel the muscles in his legs hurting, Jake was feeling tired, but he could still keep running because he had high resistance.

Just as they expected Jake managed to run the 5,000 meters at a pace of 2 minutes and 34 seconds per km, so Jake ran the 5,000 meters in 12 minutes and 50 seconds, it was a time still above the world record, but it was good to enough to win the Olympics.

Jake was exhausted after this training and feeling a lot of pain in his leg muscles, but now Jake was prepared to win 3 different sports at the next Sydney Olympics in 2000.

Just as Jake, Coach Davis was impressed and thought what was happening was unbelievable, Jake was running at 10,000 meters and 5,000 meters in a time that could be enough for Jake to break the Olympic record.

And he also ran the marathon at a time when he could break his own world record, and he could almost run in less than 2 hours someday and that was not far from happening, it was a dream for any coach to train a great athlete what Jake was like.

\"Okay Jake, with that we don't need to make any changes to your training until after the Sydney Olympics in 2000, you will train these three modalities alternately, first you will train for the marathons running at the pace of 2 minutes and 51 seconds per km for 45 km.\"

\"The next day you will train the 10,000 meters at a pace of 2 minutes and 40 seconds and you will do this training twice that day, and the next day you will do the training for the 5,000 meters, you will run in a pace of 2 minutes and 36 seconds twice that day.\"

\"I am very confident that in the next Olympics in Sydney you will be able to make history and thus win 3 gold medals in these 3 sports, congratulations, Jake.\"

\"Thank you, Coach Davis, without your help none of this would be possible, you can be sure that I will continue training to win these 3 gold medals in the next Olympics.\"

With Jake saying that Coach Davis was also confident, this time Jake took more than 1 hour to recover and this training were important for him to understand more the complexity that had the modalities of athletics and that it would not be as easy as he thought to win several gold medals even with the help of the system.

After that Jake was prepared to start his new training routine, with training for the next Olympics and going out several times a week with Kate, and at night he stayed at home with his mother talking about various things.

After Kate had been on vacation for over a month and still she didn't think about going out and continued to meet Jake several times, Kate's manager really believed that the two were in love because in the time she was dating she couldn't stand being that much with her boyfriend.

And the worst was that she knew that Jake and Kate hadn't even kissed even though they had been dating for so long, so it was certain that they enjoyed each other's company, what Jake and Kate thought was that they knew they wouldn't have much time to be together for years to come so they were enjoying this vacation.

Jake planned to continue with his routine until he had to go to Los Angeles to start training with the Los Angeles Lakers team, but a week after Jake had finished organizing his Olympics training, Adidas representative Mike Morris had come to speak to him again.

Jake naturally knew why Mike had come to talk to himself even a few weeks before the Athens marathon where they would meet, it was because of the interview he gave Chloe after the Chicago marathon.

It was really shocking that Jake said that he intended to run in the 10,000 meters and 5000 meters, if Jake, who was the best marathon runner today, said it was because he really thought he had a chance to win, otherwise he wouldn't try to run in other ways just to lose.

\"Hi, Mike, you could have waited a few more weeks, we could have met in Greece to talk.\"

\"You are right, Jake, but you know why I came to your house even though you are busy with your training, it is because of the interview you gave after the Chicago marathon.\"

\"We knew that after the NBA game season started you would have less time to run other marathons and that is why we asked you to run in Athens in a few weeks.\"

\"But I'm more curious about what you said about thinking about running in the 10,000 meters and 5,000 meters, is that true?\"
