New article up on Active.com on avoiding the "medium effort trap" as a runner.
It can be hard to determine the perfect running pace for maximum development. You don't want to run too fast, and constantly running at a medium effort can hinder your progress. Here's how to tune into your body and find the right pace for you.

Thanks +Mark Stone  - they rewrote it a bit from how I drafted the article, as I really wanted to hammer home the importance of variability more than on defining desired pacing, but I'm glad you still found it useful and I appreciate the compliment.

New post on how to manage your tune-up "B" races.
Tune-up races can be a terrific asset in your training arsenal. They can also quickly become a liability if you make mistakes in their management. Here are five ways to get the most out of your investment in tune-up races.

Pearl Izumi's new Project E:Motion shoes are gaining a lot of attention.  Here's a review of one of their road shoes.

Another repost of one of my blog articles is now up on Active.com, focusing on weight loss advise for marathoners.
It's a misconception that marathoners can eat copious amounts without gaining weight. Losing weight while training for 26.2 is tricky but doable; learn how to do it right.

Hi +Mark Junkans - assuming we are talking about high mileage that takes you beyond past peak volumes, I wouldn't suggest that as something to do in your base period.  Nor do I like to put it in the last 4-6 weeks of race preparation, as I think quantity needs to be raised before the quality can come with it.  So I put it starting 9-12 weeks out from the race and lasting the 4-6 weeks, then trimming the volume just a bit (or at least not pushing new highs) while bringing in the race-specific pace and speed work.  Nothing wrong with volume in the base, just not the time for new weekly/monthly PR's - but I doubt that's the type of volume you have in mind.

Did an interview with BSX Athletics on the combination of science and experience in coaching, and how to make more time for your training.

Active.com has taken one of my articles and made it into a slide show - I like how it works.  So I give you 10 ways to expand the idea of minimalist running (and no, it's not a screed on running barefoot).

New post up - with my wife having taken up running, I've learned a few things on how to best support a partner in such an effort, so I thought I'd share - maybe you can avoid some of the same mistakes!

New article up with some thoughts on running form.  While overemphasized as a cause of injury and making changes is challenging, there are still some basic thoughts worth keeping in mind.
