Re: Longer easy runs at “very” easy pace...

To continue the discussion, no everything is not totally dark in Swedish distance running. We actually do have 1 guy that is running pretty well. Although he had some injury problems in 2014. His name is Mikael Ekvall, and he set a new national best in the half marathon with 1:02:28, not long ago. ...

Re: Newborns and Running

I'm going to bump this thread back to the top for Tinman to answer my last question. Another thing I've considered is implementing a 3-day Tinman rotation and bringing my mileage down a little bit. I'm mostly concerned about how to fit-in running with a long commute, long work hours, and a new baby...

Re: Getting in decent shape fast.

Like I said in my post, were talking about 9 weeks. I´m not expecting miracles. The reason why I run shorter road races these days is that it´s fun. I get a chance to meet the old guys that I raced in my prime and run against them and see who has slowed down the least (and most) since last year. Las...

Getting in decent shape fast.

My problem is that the road racing season starts in mid March and right now I´m in a misarable shape. I only trained sporadically from late September to early January because of injuries and illness. I know that I won´t be in the best possible shape, but I still want to be able to run regular 10 km ...

Re: Tempo Runs vs Cruise Intervals

I think you should look more on what you´re going to do in a race and where you are in your training cycle. A fairly standard stamina workout for an 800 runner early in the track season would be 3000+2000+1000 at a fast pace with fairly long recoveries. For a 10000 runner that would be a peaking wor...

Re: Marathon Training Help

I can assure you that "lack of speed" won´t be a limiting factor for non-elite marathoners. I have heard this countless times. They feel the need to "sharpen" with fast intervals the last few weeks before the marathon. Then the marathon pace feels very easy for the first part of the race, but then t...

Re: 800 Meter Training

In the 800, more than any other distance, it´s important to know what type of 800 runner you are before we can answer. Are you a 400-800 runner or more of an 800-1500?

Re: Training versus Races

I don't have trouble leaving a group when I have someone to chase. The problem I have is leaving the group to move into the lead. I really don't like doing it until I can taste the finish line and surge home. I feel like I am naked out front with a huge target on my back. I was thinking about a wor...

Re: Ultra Marathon Fueling Advice

You will be on your feet for a long time, so you will probably need to eat something during the race. I ran my first ultra last year and after a bit of experimenting I found out that bananas worked best for me. If you can squeeze in a last long run you could try that.

Re: A Good Read - Wetmore.

[quote="dilluh"] Obviously I am a big proponent of your methods so I ask this out of curiosity, not trying to challenge you. Why is the 10k such a critical race distance/pace for translational running ability from 1500m-ultramarathon? Is there a specific physiological response gained at this pace th...

Re: How long should your longest long run before a marathon be?

[quote="Gabe1"] Yes of course that makes sense. I guess you can also make the claim that the marathon is 42,2 km, no matter if you're an elite or if you run it in 5 hours. And there is probably a psychological advantage to know that you've covered 38 km in training without bonking. And I guess this ...

Re: Eat More Carbohydrates !!!

I know quite a few ultra runners who have started a LCHF diet and they behave almost like a religious sect. You can´t even discuss the subject with them without they becoming almost aggressive. They have this us vs. them mentality. They have seen the light while the others are being fooled by the su...

Of course they don´t. Elite running is all about achieving supreme performances, not racing as often as possible.

Re: It really works!!

[quote="Captainblood"] 7 x 1000 at 5k pace is a bit nuts.  What was the recovery on that? I might do 800s at that pace for 3 miles with close to equal time recovery.  But I definitely feel it in my legs for a couple of days.
