There is a right & wrong way to do social
This post is touching on another part of my life, being the Social Media Coordinator for SKORA Running. I basically spend my days pursing the goal of adding value to peoples’ lives, either as SKORA or as myself. That’s how I hope promote SKORA. On Instagram for example, I’ll often follow new people and comment on their cool [...]

Why I don’t do fasted AM runs anymore
I was recently asked on Twitter if I have any posts on my fasted morning runs. I don’t think I do here on my new website, so thought I’d write one up quick! For the first half of 2014 I would do almost every non-hard AM run in a fasted state, which means I would not have eaten since dinner the previous evening. I could go and do [...]

2 Jan, 2015 Key Workout: Long Hill Fartlek
  I moved this workout up a day because the weekend was going to be quite colder than the 2nd of January. Actually, it ended up being about 40-50 degrees cooler depending on if I would have been in the wind or not on Saturday. I’m very glad I moved it up a day! As you can see I was quite comfortable in shorts and gloves. The presc [...]

Log: Week of Nov 10, 2014
Two weeks ago I had my unloading week, so this was the first week back in full. Due to the snow and ice, I’ve moved all of my quality work onto the treadmills, which is better than not doing them at all or risking falling. I also enjoy running on the treadmill, and will often do 1 of the 2 daily runs indoors. Something I’ve really [...]

My Job as a Coach

My Job as a Coach
Let’s play some Jeopardy. Job descriptions for $100 Here’s the clue. “Tells an athlete what to do.” What does a running coach’s job? Sorry, incorrect! —– Most people that are not coaches may assume that the main job of a coach is to tell their athletes what to do, however this can not be farther from [...]

Athlete Race Report

Athlete Race Report
Miles, an athlete of mine from Fargo, was gracious enough to write a race report from his fall Boston Marathon qualification!  Sioux Falls Marathon Recap: You’re Late! Non-runners (and non-marathoners, for that matter) can’t comprehend the ups and downs of marathon training. Over the last two years (of a three-year running career) I put on m [...]

Training Log: Oct 13-19, 2014
Last week was quite solid, being the first full 7 day period back in training. One training characteristic I am experimenting with is splitting my easy days into two short runs rather than one single. While it has only been a week, I’ve quite enjoyed the double days. There are multiple benefits that I’m seeking from this type of [...]
