Episode #241: The Dos and Don'ts of Cross Training
07/13/21 • 30 min
I often get the question: where does cross training fit into my run training?
The answer to that question is more nuanced than you might think. In this episode, I define cross-training for you and then talk about for whom and how it might fit into your overall running routine. Spoiler alert: it may not be for everyone and that's ok.

Episode #246: 9 Truths about Training Paces
08/18/21 • 46 min
This topic might be the single biggest topic for questions that I get as a coach. What paces should I train at? How do these paces change with weather? What if I can't hit them? How should my training paces inform my race pace? What does this race result mean for my training paces? And I could go on...
These are all good and valid questions, but many of them are underpinned by common misunderstandings about how training paces work. In this episode, I try to bust some of those myths while laying out 9 truths about training paces and how you should use them.
Special Episode: London Marathon Recap, 2020
10/09/20 • 43 min
In this episode, I break down all of the action in the London Marathon from Kipchoge's big defeat to Sara Hall's kick finish for 2nd and everything in between. There is so much inspiration to go around with this race, and I may have just scratched the surface in discussing it. If you are looking for hope for your running these days, then I think this episode might just be for you.
Episode #202: Total Stress Load + Stress Inventory
09/28/20 • 49 min
In this episode, I begin with a preview of the London Marathon including my picks for the elite race coming on Sunday, October 4th. Who will win in the head-to-head match up of Bekele vs. Kipchoge? And, can Brigid Kosgei break another world record?
Then in the ~24th minute, I turn to part one of a two-part conversation with Jason Brooks on stress. In this first part of the discussion, we talk about how to take an objective view of stress (vs. thinking only of its negative connotations). Then, we discuss total stress load and a very useful tool - the stress inventory - to help you identify sources of unproductive stress in your life that might be taking away from your training.

Episode #201: Training by Effort
09/21/20 • 75 min
In this episode, I talk about the why, what, and how of effort-based training. It's important to remember that achieving your fitness goals is directly related to running at varying effort-levels in order to build your aerobic system in all of the right ways. Pace is only a proxy for effort. Effort is still king. And in order to effectively execute your training, then I believe every athlete should understand the effort desired for every workout and how to dial into it. I give you 8 effort zones with the purpose for each, and then talk about ways to learn to feel them on your runs and in your workouts.

09/01/20 • 70 min
In this episode, we address an important topic brought to me by Erin Osenbaugh, a member of the Rogue Running community here in Austin. She raised the issue of size inclusivity in the community and how we can better make those with all body types and sizes feel included.
This discussion centers around her own journey on this topic as someone who came to running as an adult. We discuss the implicit messages embedded within clothing sizes in retail environments, imaging within the running community, inclusivity in training programs, and even the swag provided at races. Erin focuses on solutions while holding up a mirror for us all. Thank you to Erin for joining me to discuss this very important topic.

In this prelude to the big episode #200, Chris and Jason Brooks chat with strength coach Travis Goyeneche to discuss his strength training principles and his approach to periodizing strength training within a run training cycle. We talk about the importance of clean, fundamental movement patterns for all runners (including Olympians) and how to build upon clean movement in order to find new speed as a runner.

Episode #197: When to Press and When to Rest
08/24/20 • 62 min
In last week's episode, Frank Shorter talked about following your instincts, knowing when to press and when to rest in training. BUT... that is easier said than done. It's really hard in practice and generally takes a lot of experience to get the balance right. Even at 20 years of running, however, I still make those mistakes.
In this episode, I give you cues to use within a training season and within a workout that tell you when to back off and when to go for it. How do you know when to back off in training? How do you know when not to do the full number of reps? Those are the critical questions that I try to answer for you in this episode.

If you are a listener with a question, be careful what you ask because you might just end up on the show! In this week's episode, I talk to listener Sherri from Florida who emailed last week with several questions about managing an injury while trying to continue training. I address some of her questions in episode 190, but this conversation brings in the practical side featuring Sherri's story.
We get a little background on her, discuss her questions on managing and coming back from injury, and then talk a little bit about her next steps to smash her goals. Thank you so much to Sherri for having the courage to share her story with the world. I believe her story will help anyone who might be facing injury challenges.
