Listener Q&A March 2016

Another month is drawing to a close, and that can only mean one thing:

Listener Q&A March 2016

Listener Q&A March 2016

It’s Q&A Time!

If you’re new to the party, welcome!

The way this works is pretty simple, I ask for questions and then I try to answer them!

We do this every month, and if you ever want to get your questions answered on the show the best way to do so is to join our FB Group.

Once you’re in the group, in addition to cracking jokes and talking running with everyone else in the group, be on the lookout for a thread (that will include a photo similar to the one above) where I’m asking for questions.

Add your question in the comments, and that’s all there is to it!

So without any further ado, let’s get on to this month’s questions!

Your Questions from March 2016

  • Does a split time from a race still count as a PR?
  • What are your running/racing superstitions? What are some crazy examples you’ve seen in others?
  • Morning runs on an empty stomach: good or bad?
  • How should I adjust my strength training routine the week of a race?
  • What does this mean: “Hills 6-8 x 1 min up @ 85% Effort, Easy Down”?
  • How do you adjust training intensity in the summer? You know, since it’s already summer here in FL…
  • In terms of HR Training, what are the zones and what qualifies as the “danger zone”?
  • Any tricks for dealing with a strained calf AND a sprained ankle?
  • Any suggestions for talking a “friend” into running a trail race/ultra?

And that’s it for this month!

The list is a little shorter than some previous months, but still a good array of questions and (hopefully) some useful answers!

    Thank you for answering my question! Before my Gasparilla 15k this past February, I did strength training Monday but skipped Thursday. Other than that race, I’ve always done my usual Monday and Thursday strength workouts before a race. I guess I’ll have to experiment some. I like what you said about seeing how tired or sore I feel on a Saturday after my Thursday strength work. That would be a good indicator of what I should do. Based on that, I think I need to step it up some! Things are getting too easy for me.
