Individual Running Form Analysis Available

I just love to see people get faster and improve.  Better yet, I love to see them overcome and prevent injuries.  Through Individual Running Form Analysis I am able to give them individual form-feedback for immediate improvement.  It’s so great to see the light-bulb go on for people and have them get exciting about running faster in such a short time.  Contact me today to schedule yours done.

Workout Wednesday: Yasso 800s

Yasso 800’s are a classic workout that I suggest for those trying to determine a potential marathon pace.  Build up to 10 x 800 repeats at your goal pace (ie.  if you want to run a 3:30 marathon then 3 min. 30 would be your interval time for each 800) with a 400 meter jog recovery between.

Looking for a Coach?  I would love to work with you.  I train people from all over the world and USA.  I have been coaching for over 25 years and have coached people for sprints, wrestling nutrition, sprint distance triathlons, 5K, 10K, 1/2 and full marathons, BQ athletes, 70.3 and full Ironman events.  I also work with non-runner that just want to get fit or eat better to loose weight.  I offer full custom coaching services in person (local) or on-line (for those farther away).  Message me at theblonderunner@gmail.com if you’d like to learn more.  I especially love to work with beginners.  Happy Training!
