Half Marathon Challenge: Run Smarter using advice from Running Strong

Posted Aug 11 2009 8:48am

Last week, Tom and I had the good fortune of a virtual meet up with Coach Janet Hamilton Loungecast logo ( ) from Running Strong.  We were talking to her about her expert article in our upcoming book, " The Ultimate Runner ".  She is a well recognized expert and coach on the topics of marathons and gave us some great tips in our casual conversation.  It only took me a few minutes to realize that her good, common sense advice was just too helpful to not share with the Lounge ASAP!  

She graciously joined us for this week' s podcast and bring some of her tips and secrets to half marathoners (and marathoners too!).  And to make it even better, she invited some of her current athletes to join in the conversation. 

If you are looking for a voice of reason from a great coach, download this podcast and take it along on your next run.

And take in her message -  especially the tips about running being made up of four very important dimensions:  flexibility, strength, biomechanics and training.  Do you train with all four in mind?   

And then think about her advice to rethink your training pace.   Do you need to slow down?

She mentions a few pace calculators in her mesage, here are the links:
