QT: When It Comes to Making Progress, Consistency is King

I talk a lot about the role that consistency plays in your improvement as a runner.

Point blank, the best way to reach your running goals is by intelligently training for months/years.

In other words, consistency is king.

But training consistently, for months or years, is something that is much easier said than done. Read more


QT: Doing Workouts During Races is the Key to Running All the Races

In last week’s quick tip, I talked about the possibility of running too many races.

Some runners are all in on one side of this debate or the other, but there is another option that is available.

What if you do some of your workouts during races?


Don’t worry, I’ll explain. Read more

QT: Every Run You Do Has a Purpose, Whether You Know It or Not

How often do you stop to consider the purpose of each workout that you do?

Why Am I Here

Every time you head out the door? Every week or two? Never?

So, it would help if you were at least thinking about said purpose on occasion, eh? Read more

The Wait is Almost Over… Are You Ready! Be Ready on Race Day Preview

You know that book I’ve been writing for the past few months?

Yeah, it’s almost ready to go!

Today I’m interrupting our normal schedule of interviews with other runners to share a bit about the book, why I wrote it, who it’s for, and how you can pre-order the book with a bunch of extra goodies right now.

So let’s get on with it, shall we?

Be Ready on Race Day

If there’s one thing that I can’t stand, it’s one size fits all.

If you honestly believe that one size fits all, I’ve got two words for you:

you're wrong

Sorry to offend, but it’s true.

One size has never, and will never, fit all.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about training plans, philosophies, religions, diets, preferred television shows, or anything else, one size does not fit all.

Yet, for whatever reason, all of the books that are out there when it comes to helping runners prepare for races always have a generic training plan designed for no one in particular.

And it drives me fracking crazy!

Crazy Yakko

So I decided to do something about it, and Be Ready on Race Day was born.
