QT: Your Longest Run Isn’t the End All/Be All When Training for a Race


“How long should my longest long run be before my race?”

This is a question that I see quite a bit on social media, and at least occasionally from the runners that I coach.

Can I be honest for a minute?

Of Course

I hate this question. Read more

QT: Is Race Variety the Key to Your Growth as a Runner?


As you may remember, if you’ve been around these parts for awhile, I got a new guitar for Christmas a couple of years ago.

Up until that point? I’d never owned a guitar and had only dabbled on the guitars of friends a handful of times over the years.

To say I couldn’t play the guitar at all was not an understatement.

I’d always wanted to learn to play the guitar, specifically how to play Dave Matthews songs on the guitar.

So I took the plunge, bought myself a starter guitar, and dove in. Read more

QT: What Got You Here May Not Get Your There (Best Of-ish)

This post/episode was originally published in February of 2017. The post/show notes are more or less copy/pasted from the original post, but the podcast audio is a new take on the topic.


Where do you want to be, with regards to your running, in five years?

QT: Tips for Adding Double Days to Your Training Regimen


One thing I’ve been struggling with for awhile is adding more miles to my weekly routine.

On the surface, this really shouldn’t be that difficult.

But therein lies the problem.

I’m already running five days per week, and I really like having a couple of non-running days per week.

And as for running more on the days that I already run, due to life that’s a little easier said than done.

Is it doable? Yes. Absolutely.

I’m admittedly a slow starter in the morning. And try as I might, I just can’t seem to get out the door to begin my run in less than an hour after waking up.

Perhaps the solution for my dilemma is the one I’ve been trying to avoid for the past year: double days. Read more

QT: The Problem With Procrastination for Runners


If you saw the post in my IG story recently, you know that I got a new podcasting toy to play with!

Thanks to the support of several listeners via Patreon, I recently purchased a Zoom recorder so I can do interviews on location.

Up until now, I’ve either had to have someone come to the house to do an interview in person (which has happened a couple of times) or utilize skype to connect with my guests.

Finally, I’m able to interview people in person which I really think is going to help me take my interview skills, and hopefully the quality of the show, to another level. Read more
