Running strides will help you. It’s a relatively low-risk way to make you faster. Run as hard as you can for 20 seconds after a run. Do it a few times a week, and it can add up to running as hard as you can for 100 miles a year. Wow.
I run 95% of my runs alone in the desert. While yes, I would love to run more with people, there aren’t many options here. I’ve gotten a few questions about “how to make solo runs more enjoyable.” There are some days I miss running with more people but right now that’s just how it is.
When I found out I was moving just outside the Mojave desert, I naturally looked at the weather. With the exception of Del Rio, Tx, I really hadn’t spent much time in the desert in the summer. It was one of the few climates I knew nothing about other than “it’s hot.”
One of the most common questions I get is: What running podcasts do you listen to?
Over 3 years ago, I blogged about running podcasts. Since then, some have come and gone. The podcast world has only gotten bigger since early 2016 or even 2018. Is podcasting the new blogging? Are newsletters the new podcasts?
