Pamela Weir Turned To The Trails When Tragedy Struck

My guest on the show today is someone that found running a bit later in life.

The trails are where she feels most at home and she aspires to keep pushing her limits for as long as her body allows.

QT: When Opportunity Presents, Should You Take It?

A year and a half ago (more or less), I went all in professionally on all things Diz Runs.

At that point in time, I still had a handful of personal training clients that I was working with on a regular basis.

One of those clients took me up on the option of continuing to write her workouts and serve as an online personal trainer.

Long story short, this woman has been pretty unhappy with her job since I started working with her some 4+ years ago.

A regular topic of conversation during her workouts was her venting about some shenanigans at her office.

Eventually, she got serious about looking for a new job. And before long, she had an interview and was offered a position with a new company. Read more

QT: Is There an Actual Benefit to a Shakeout Run?

One workout that you’ll see on most training plans, from one-size-fits-all to an actual good plan created by a coach, is the shakeout run.

I’ve put a shakeout run on the schedule of most of the athletes I coach over the years, so clearly I’ve bought into the need for doing a shakeout run the day before the race.

Or have I?

Curiously, there is no mention of doing a shakeout run in Be Ready on Race Day.

And I haven’t actually done an easy run the day before a race since Pocatello.

So are shakeout runs really necessary? Or are they just one of those things that runners do because other runners do them, so we should probably do them?

Are Runners Stupid?
