Train for the Boulder Backroads Half Marathon 10K - September 28 2019

The Art of Seeing the Big Picture

Coaching and competing in every running distance from 100 meters to 100 miles impelled me to adopt a holistic perspective. One that honors the importance of the whole body and the interdependence of its parts. Viewed holistically, several factors go into harnessing a person’s raw running ability. They include training, nutrition, psychology, and genetics (and the total impression they create).

My translation:  Where there’s a will, there’s a way. As long as you’re ready to follow a running program that incorporates the right distances, paces, and recoveries for who you are, you will fulfill your goals.

The Word Recover

There have always been extraordinary runners who defy conventional beliefs regarding recovery and human performance. How do they recover to run so fast, so often? There is no simple explanation.

The word recover means both “to regain health” and “to regain balance.” It’s all too easy for people to make the mistake of racing too frequently without adequate recovery from hard efforts. Consequently, they fail to regain the good form and fitness they had built up through training. They invariably suffer for it either by injury, disillusionment, or worst of all, giving up on running altogether. The inherent risk of these pitfalls increases markedly when you are running races at a pace and/or distance beyond your comfort zone.

The Missing Ingredient in your Training Strategy?

It's probably obvious to anybody who has trained for any kind of endurance event: in most cases, it's more preferable to train with a group of other runners than it is to train on your own. Not only do these group sessions feel easier and more enjoyable, but they are also generally faster too.

Summer Workout Motivation

I once struggled with blowing up from heat exhaustion, lack of hydration and under-fueling but I finally figured it out. The more fit I became the stronger and quicker my adaptation to hot weather became. I adopted simple cooling methods like dousing with giant sponges drenched in icy water, ice hats and ice baths.

Every Day is Like Sunday

Sports psychologists call it “transcending normal awareness." Whatever you want to call it, this approach is very easy to communicate and all the runners can have their own experience how good their form and breathing are on that particular day.
