How to Make Your Easy Runs Work for You

Your running training will be most effective when you correctly apply the hard easy principle, but too many runners don't fully understand how to apply it, and as a result, they run their easy runs too fast, preventing recovery, and thereby, preventing the adaptation needed for improvement.

MFR 144: Running During a Pandemic

Wow! I would never have guessed I’d be doing a podcast on this topic, but here I am. This is not normal, nowhere near normal, not by ay stretch of the imagination. We are all living through this, one day at a time, finding our way, figuring out how to cope. We have no other choice; however, fortunately, ‘we’ have running to ease our trip through this difficult time. Every single runner of every level is struggling right now, stressed, some more than others, but living during t

MFR 143: Sensible Running Resolutions for 2020

It’s that time again, time to carefully consider what we should do in 2020 to take our running and our lives to the next level. Since the options for running resolutions are almost infinite, I thought I’d provide some insight into the advantages of some types of resolutions and the pitfalls of others. In this episode of the Mojo for Running Podcast, I discuss goal of more miles than you’ve done before, the goal of a longer distance than you’ve ever run before, the goal o

MFR 142: The Challenge of the Holidays and a Challenge for the Holidays

No time of the year challenges your commitment to running more than the holidays, the weeks between Thanksgiving and the new year. For that reason, I thought I’d share some my perspective in the hope that it will motivate you to stay the course. You, of course, may not run ‘all the miles,’ and I sure get that, as I explain, but you don’t want to let go of too many of your planned miles. Let’s talk about that. To help with accountability, to give you just a

MFR 141: Returning from a Break

Whether you are new to running or you’ve been running for years, there will be times when you stop running weeks or even months. Matybe you have a health issue, and maybe you had an injury. My runners miss long periods, sometimes, maybe due to caring for elderly parents, maybe due their own medical problems, and sometimes a running injury or some other injury that requires a long recovery period. Sometimes, it’s weeks of overtime or school. Three of my runners in the last half dozen

MFR 140: My Thoughts on the ‘Brittany’ Movie, Running Goals, and Your First Marathon

Recently, Hubby and I actually went to a theater, which we hadn’t done in over a year, to see the movie, Brittany Runs a Marathon. In this episode I discuss that film, and, knowing that it will inspire many, that leads to the topic of running goals and running your first marathon. No worries, I don’t give away the plot. I hope you’ll listen, and in this episode, since I talk about running ‘your’ first marathon, I also suggest that you listen to the four-part series

MFR 139: The Mental Side of Running

Even before you were a runner, you had probably heard the oft repeated line, “Running is 90% mental.” I don’t think I’ve ever heard any long-time runner argue against this, because you realize pretty quickly that this is true. iF your mind wills it, if your heart is in it, if you have the necessary grit, the you will become a runner, and you will achieve the goals you set. It may take time, and it will certain require more mental tenacity than physical. This is what non-

MFR 138: Base Miles

How is your running base coming along? This is one of the most critical considerations for any runner’s success, but in my experience, the great majority of recreational runners ignore it. With this episode of the Mojo for Running Podcast, I hope to raise awareness to motivate every listener to give this area of their running life the attention it deserves. A great percentage of your running success – or failure – will be due to a properly executed training, but if you miss a

Boston. That word inspires emotion in every runner, as it does with me. I’ve always been a word person, which is just part of the reason I was an English teacher for 15 years. I think about words. Those six letters move me. They have for years but much more, now. Six letters that, to me, carry a level of emotion just below the word, family, and that is saying a lot. Whether you’ve only watched the race on TV, been one of the thousands lining the race course on marathon race day, or

If you just do one exercise for your core, this should be it. Planks have many benefits for runners. In this episode, I explain the various ways of modifying the standard plank for even more benefit. Adding this exercise to your cross training, will, I guarantee, impact your running performance and go a long way toward preventing injuries.
