Training July 25 – Aug 7, 2016

Training July 25 – Aug 7, 2016
The last two weeks have gone quite well! I’ve gotten my mileage up in to the 60’s and have done workouts I’ve never done before! The Aerobic Power workout on July 29th was a huge motivational boost for me. Six miles just slower than goal half pace in 72 degree temps was awesome! Then running 8.5 at marathon goal pace the ne [...]

Am I a Certified Running Coach

Am I a Certified Running Coach
No. I’ve no certification to coach running. Such a title is not needed to be a running coach, unlike a dietitian or cosmetologist, for example. Recently a Road Runners Club of America class opened up within driving distance of me, and I became interested. This is likely the most well-known coaching certification available. I did some r [...]

Shoutout to RaceRaves – Race Re...

Shoutout to RaceRaves – Race Review Site
I was deeply impressed by Race Raves just recently, and felt compelled to give them a shout-out. The co-founder, Mike, sent me an email a while after I posted my Fargo Half Marathon review to their website. He thanked me for joining, writing a review of the event at their website, and you could tell he read my race report since I mentioned h [...]

My Sheridan WY Trip

My Sheridan WY Trip
In June of 2016 Desi took students abroad for a service-learning trip to Ecuador. Since I work from home, I took it upon myself to go on a bit of an adventure myself. For the first bit of her trip there were some local running events I wanted to attend. I volunteered at the Dino Run 5k by marking the course, MCing, and running as sweep to pic [...]

Training Log + Goals for Fargo 13.1

Training Log + Goals for Fargo 13.1
Time to taper! Fargo is this Saturday and I’m feeling good. My weight is down, my volume is up, and I’m hoping for a nice half. Here’s my last week of running. Desi and I went to Big Hill for the “10k” and it went well. I ran it about the same as I did last year, but I think I ran a bit easier this time around, [...]

Training Log Week of May 2, 2016
What a super week! First, I’m starting to work with two new athletes for some great marathons later this year. I also had a lady email me today with some questions. I hit 10 hours of running finally again. It took a while to get back up there since the ankle sprain (but all is well). A photo posted by SKORA Running (@skorarunning) on [...]

After three stagnant years…a PR!
I could not have been more happy with yesterday’s run.   After a twisted ankle, one week fully off to let it heal, and a week at half my regular volume and only one good workout I ran the Cobblers For a Cause 5k Run/Walk and Kids 1 mile yesterday morning.   It was possibly my warmest run of the year thus far. The first mile [...]
