Article about the Oregon Project. Interesting that it’s titled “Project puts the U.S. back into Running”. By whose standards I wonder?

It’s from June of 2003. But it talks a little about the technology that they are using and what Salazar thinks about it.

Here’s a snippet:

What Salazar and company know now increasingly involves the use of computer-aided training methods. Oregon Project runners regularly have their blood analyzed for lactic acid and red blood cell count. They live in a house that has four sealed rooms that simulate life at 12,000 feet. And they use a treadmill and a breathing tube to measure their oxygen consumption.
