How are you handling your long runs?

How are you handling your long runs?

Back 2 years ago, I was having issues making the long runs work, and feeling like they were helping my training instead of hurting it, or at minimum not helping much. Then, I listened to this podcast and it changed a lot of things for me and the athletes I coach. Make...

TIP OF THE WEEK // Racing in the countrysideWho doesn't like a little scenery when suffering for 70.3 or 140.6 miles? Maybe you prefer the rustic beauty of the forested countryside, or the great plains and rolling fields. Whichever type of countryside it is, here's some tips to keep you focused and sharp.1. It's ok to look, but don't get lost. Nothing worse than veering off course, missing a turn or hitting the gravel shoulder on the bike when spacing out at nature's beauty.2. Know the terrain. Some areas are mountainous or rolling hills. Before you sign up for that beauty of a course, know what type of work it will demand on race day.3. Do take it in! Make time in your trip to take it in. Allow a little bit of down time to stop and smell the pine trees.4. It may be tempting to go out and explore the nature, but keep in mind you have a long race to do, so maybe schedule that long hike for a day or so after for recovery.5. As spring/early summer 2021 has shown us, heat can be an issue early in race season. Be ready for the historical climate, but be ready to pivot for race day conditions.6. If you really want to get your prime lodging, secure it earliest you can. Everyone wants the breathtaking views, and these races have 2500 to 3000 of your closest friends looking for that same spot.7. When heading out for the pre race shake out bikes and runs, be aware of farm type equipment on the roads. Goes without saying watch out for traffic, but you may encounter bigger and slower traffic than you are used to.8. Be good stewards of the sport. Leave the beauty of the area like you found it and be wise about liter and picking up after yourself when out and about. ...
