Shoe question

Thanks for the input. I tried the Free everyday by chance as I had heard months back that the 5.0 had been discontinued (which I found out later was bull). Just didnt like something in the fit. The Mizuno Elixer has been recommended to me as well from a couple of other runners, (one being a sub 4 mi...

Shoe question

I might just check those out. Years back when I first got into running (if you want to call it that). I believe I was running in the 2040s ? Now those, I loved. The toe-off was pretty darned good, and not clumsy like you would expect in a larger shoe. I just remember not liking the version after and...

Shoe question

Just wanted to get some peoples feedback if anyone is reading. I typically do most of my running in Nike Free 5.0s and have been for the past 2.5 years. Even the past 6 months as my running has been more in the range of 42-52 miles. Now, this has been though, primarily on trails of crushed limestone...

Thank you Tom & Big Lessons Learned

I am going to start this post and will possibly either come back to edit it or add to it as more comes to mind. Tom has been helping me since late August. My "part-time job" will be taking me away for most of this year so training will be interesting. Assuming my goals are still the same, I can't wa...

Older (Casual) Runner's Training Q.

I would have to second those breathing recommendations as well from Tom, they are pretty much spot on to what I have come to notice as well. It is funny how I can even feel the fine line especially between the CV to MVO pace and the breathing effort. I have noticed that sometimes I might have a (in-...

Question about Bowerman

More great stuff Tom. Too bad Pre may have missed out from learning from another runner. Q: Can you comment more about what you said on a previous post, about Dr. Saltin and his comments about the running paces of most Kenyan's being less intense than as promoted by the media ? (I remember you had p...

No worries, Kevin, but I bet you like me are probably super intrigued to see just how talented Bolt is across the sprinting spectrum... I'd love to see what he could do with the 400. But I still also want to see how much further he can take the 100 and 200 !

Not coaching-related, but worth your while...

I have been a huge Wariner fan for a long time, I can remember reading an article about him in the FW Star Telegram when he was in high school. However, I was greatly disappointed to see him get rid of Clyde Hart. I previously, and still believe that without the watchful eye of Hart that it cost him...

Wow, I knew Wottle had won the 800m gold, but never had seen it. What a finish. And with Mills, I know that the overall time/pace is not of today's OG standards, but that kick at the end was amazing. To be honest I don't think I've ever seen a distance runner look so much more like a sprinter at the...

Question for MD extras (not mileage)

In regards to Hill work, I would have to go back and check a book to make certain, but I believe that Bruce Jenner in his heyday, did two weekly sessions of 20x300m hillwork. Now, I am no expert, but as an addendum, I also believe he had some achilles issues. The cause really could have been a myria...

Curious, what is the minimum that you would recommend for a long run when primarily focused on 5K training ?

Really, after my 10K early Nov, my focus will be mainly in the 5K range in the form of 4 and 1.5 mile timed runs.

Haha , good point Tom. I meant you. I am not sure why I posted that question (probably best not to post right after a long run and deficifient in blood sugar and oxygen !!) b/c then I kind of figured that even then you probably already had a lot of your training principles set in place, in this case...

I keep meaning to ask you, what is an "easy" pace for you on those other days? For a runner at that level.
