Coach Brad Hudson Interviewed on Runner Academy - Most people run too fast on easy days. Run hard just a couple of days a week. Gradually build mileage over a long period, but maybe not only by 10% per week.

  1. Ooh fun post! I could spend all day clicking on links :)

  2. Finishing a marathon with the longest run of 15 mile is pretty cool :) Lou is a little power packed machine!

    1. I don't know how Lacey did it and I can't imagine pushing myself in a race for 3 days like Lou will!

  3. Those are some sweet shoes! That Lacey never ceases to amaze me with her running! -M

    1. I think that it's great that both you and your sister run and share a blog, too!

    1. Thanks! I hope that you'll be able to enjoy a little extra blog reading now that you're tapering for your half marathon. Exciting!

  5. Hey, thanks for the shout out!
    I can't believe how hard it would be to be Lou, running in such polluted air...or running a marathon after only completing 15 miles...AWESOME! Inspiring!
    I have to work on building a stronger runner body--I am hoping with the winter weather to start focusing more on that--AND taking easy runs, easy! Fun post!

    1. Congrats on finishing with such a fast time at your first marathon - 3:41! Wow!

  6. I will have to read the shoe reviews! I am always interested in what's out there.
    Awesome races to read about too. Running a marathon on 15 mile long run... it can be done! I am just too chicken :)

  7. Another great list of race recaps, Tina! I saved your links to read later. I'm always looking for new exercises to add to my at home workouts!
