Run With Me

Run With Me
A microcast about running, recorded while running. 3–5 minute episodes, released weekly-ish.

14: Welcome Back
Dec 28, 2016 • 2 min
I’ve been gone, courtesy of a temporarily non-functional microphone and a ridiculously crazy fall. Time to amp it back up for some triathlon and marathon training in 2017!
13: Training Volume/Don’t Be Dumb
Aug 3, 2016 • 5 min
Keep your training volume increase reasonable—10–15% weekly, with a hard maximum of 20%. Failing to do so is a good way to end up sick (like I did). Check out the run!…
[PRC]5: Recovery
Jul 19, 2016 • 2 min
It’s important to include rest in your training plan. Especially when you do extra-long runs. Check out the run! (You can see that accidental 20-mile long run here:…
12: A Training Plan
Jul 10, 2016 • 5 min
A good mix of runs for half-marathon training. - Two or three aerobic runs, 4—6 miles long, run entirely aerobically. - One *tempo run*: 6—10 miles long, run 50% aerobically, 50% harder-than-race-heart-rate. - One day of speed work (800-meter repeats, or…
[PRC]4: Hydrate!
Jul 3, 2016 • 0 min
12-mile runs without a water bottle are a bad idea. Check out the run!:
11: Avoiding Injury
Jun 22, 2016 • 3 min
How to avoid getting injuries, or exacerbating mild ones, by listening to your body. (This is a recurring theme!) Check out the run!
[PRC]3: Adapting on the Fly
Jun 10, 2016 • 1 min
The opposite of the previous PRC: just as you sometimes go home early because your body is complaining, sometimes you stay out longer or run harder because your body is raring to go. Check out the run!
10: Crosstraining
Jun 10, 2016 • 4 min
Even if you’re just a runner, mixing in other sports like swimming, cycling, or weight training will be extremely helpful. Check out the run!
[PRC]2: Stopping
May 30, 2016 • 1 min
Sometimes you go home from your run a mile or two early, because that’s what’s healthy and safe. Check out the run:
9: Consistency/Nutrition
May 29, 2016 • 4 min
Two little topics: 1. Consistency is tough especially when you’re busy. Even when you fall behind, though, just get back out there. 2. Health by way of nutrition is more than just calories-in and calories-out. How much you eat matters, but so does what…
8. Far From Home
May 21, 2016 • 4 min
Keeping at it even when you’re on the road: it takes a lot of discipline, but it’s also totally worth it. I did the first three miles of this run with my dad! Check out the run!
7: Pushups and Pullups
May 10, 2016 • 4 min
Running isn’t a great way to lose weight—you need to include strength training for that. But it *is* a great way to get healthy in general. Check out the run!:
6: A Run is a Break
May 2, 2016 • 4 min
How sometimes running makes you feel less physically tired, even when you start our incredibly tired physically. Counterintuitive? Maybe. But it’s true anyway. Check out the run:
[PRC]1: Motivation
Apr 27, 2016 • 1 min
Whatever it takes to motivate yourself… Check out the run!
5: A Different Kind of Endurance
Apr 26, 2016 • 4 min
* Learning to endure over not just one run, but many months, with a training strategy. * And also: getting tired by taking a tempo run, a long run, and then a toddler run in a three day span. Check out the run!
4: Heart Rate Training
Apr 16, 2016 • 4 min
Heart-rating training (on a run where I was heart-rating training)!
3: Clearing My Head
Apr 15, 2016 • 5 min
Sometimes, you just have to get out there to clear your head. Check out the run!
2: New Routes

Staying motivated by running new routes. Check out the run!
1: Hi, There!
Apr 5, 2016 • 3 min
I went for a run. And then I invited you to join me! Here’s to some great running in the weeks and months, and maybe years, ahead! Check out the run!
