RUNNING IN A FASTER TIMEFRAME.
When Maxi Fleet, a marathon runner, meets Jack Cram, a physicist researching flow, their careers blossom and they become partners. Their story is told in a novel Time Is Gold by Martin Knox. Maxi trains using flow, or ‘in the zone’ and her performance improves to the elite level. Her goal is to run faster than any woman has run before.
Jack has an idea that if she trains to run in ‘extreme flow’ she can dilate her time, being able to run further in the same time, according to Einstein’s Special Relativity theory applied to her neurology. Her training is planned at meetings of her team of friends, in a think tank, with Jack as her philosophical coach. Her coaching needs develop from accepting her father’s authoritarianism to Jack’s role as her technical adviser. He is too much in love to be able to tell her what to do. The philosophies and scientific theories of her running are carefully described and explained in non-scientific language. Her progress is fresh and inspiring.
Will Maxi achieve her goal to break the World record?

FASTER PERFORMANCE COULD HAPPEN
Time Is Gold is the story of an athlete who trains ‘in flow’ and dilates her marathon time by ‘extreme flow’. Flow is a psychological condition of optimal achievement, she accomplishes by focussing on her goal, by high mental engagement and with her skills honed to automaticity.
In extreme flow her neural system delivers the response she wants at a speed close to the transmission maximum, when her neural time dilates causing more time for her to perform in.
This theory is an interpretation of Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity. Like good science fiction, it has not happened yet, but could. It is a story of awesome performance explained by authentic physics, psychology and neuroscience, by a science teacher.
Maxi runs as fast as she can in her own time, without limitation of her performances by others having different goals and clock expectations. Her goal is personal best performance which she achieves by exhaustive training and rehearsal.
If you commit to your goal and train hard, this book will explain the philosophy of how you can perform faster. Can be used wherever faster performance is wanted.
