You mentioned… “Already to Driveline…” I’ve read about this facility and program, but have no actual experience with it or other such facilities.

From the time that your started, to now, have you charted your progress in every way that these people give you? In other words, are you progressing well according to their mandates and yours-combined?

I ask this question because usually when someone is attending a training facility and a professional staff manning that facility, certain expectations are stated at the outset. Normally, it starts out with a goal oriented kind of thing, then goes up and down as needed, and at the advice of the professional coach(s) that are helping you.

I’ve tracked and witness a lot of these sessions for specific men, and there is always a fundamental reason for enrolling. Assessment goals are agreed upon first, a definite time span is agreed upon next to achieve each goal -step by step, the evaluations are recorded and agreed upon before moving on to the next level. In every case that I’ve been involved with - these sessions overall, are expensive. Expectations on your part, since your footing the bill, is the litmus test here.
-Are you getting your money’s worth?
-Do you agree with each step, session, results thus far?
-Are you happy with where you are and your ability(s)?

Now my situation is a lot different than yours. My environment was a “make it to this point”, or " find another job." Period.
So without that kind of pressure… let me ask you this:
Suppose you were in a situation where you HAD TO meet your expectations of gaining 10 miles per hour. Would you still have a job? A job to pay your bills, eat, roof over your head?

Thanks Coach_Baker for your answers.

By being already to Driveline , I mean I am already doing their protocols with their books , information and program they sell. To answers to your question , Yes I track all my results , but I have no mandates giving by them . The reason why I go with them and I choose their informations is because I think they have the best expertise for my needs. I also use other information such as top velocity and Treadathletics , because I think they can help me to get to my needs. The need of getting to 93 mph to be able to have a job. Do I get my money worth ? Of course ! Do I agree with each step , session , results so far ? no ! and if I was happy with my abilities I would not have written on this blog. So my question is much more about with all the informations I got and the work I put can I get to 93 mph if theirs only 5 things that matters to maybe or maybe not get to my expectations.

Based on where you’ve been and where you’re going with the same track record, I’d say no, you won’t gain 10 mph or much else.

I would suggest looking towards your college coaching staff - unless, they’re just marking time.

I wish you had placed your questions and response on the regular web pages of this web site. Others could pickup on your question better and perhaps help you more. Having to be redirected by a blog can be confusing to some.
