Author Dr. Jason Karp is on to talk about his new book, "Running a Marathon for Dummies." It won't matter if you're just getting started or you've been at this a really long time. You'll find useful information in this interview. It's good to challenge your comfort zone and Jason talks about training, equipment, injury prevention and the state of marathon running. His opinion on the sport is edgy, it catches Joe off guard and the two trade opinions with respect to their points of view.
We discuss running the 2015 Chicago Marathon with local Susan Cruz and Robert Schulz who grew up there. It was a beautiful and and a wonderful city for an exception marathon, even if goal times weren't acheived.
Jim Vance is an elite triathlon coach who has co-authored “Triathlon Science”. He is a two time Amateur World Champion in ITU and Xterra and holds an IronMan PR of 8:37:09.
I brought Jim onto our podcast because he has been at the forefront in research of Power Running. Many believe that when power can be effectively measured in running, as has been cone in cycling, it will be a major game changer. In sports science thus far; heart rate is the most effective metric used to identify work relative to performance. This is an interesting time in endurance sport technology and our goal is to share some insight as to the potential of power as it applies to running performance.
“All records, from 100 meters to the Marathon will drop, when we are able to effectively measure power in training”.
Everyone knows that to be successful in the sport of Obstacle Racing you must develop your running skill. Never mind that of all recreational sports, running leads in the number of injuries that athletes endure. What’s interesting is that the leading cause of these injuries is improper running skill and could easily have been avoided with proper training.
Our host Richard Diaz is a highly sought after running form specialist and performance diagnostician. In this episode of “Listen and Learn” He hopes to point out the principal flaws runners make and what they should do to correct these flaws and get back to running injury free and optimal performance. If you are setting out to run your first marathon or are an avid Spartan Race aficionado, this is an episode you don’t want to miss!
”Running more often or at greater intensity with bad form is a hell bound train!”
Every year as a way of showing our appreciation to our listeners, we do a Black Friday giveaway show. The way it works is simple: Write or message me, Richard Diaz or The Natural Running Network Facebook page and provide a question related to Obstacle Racing, Running or associated training. We'll do our best to answer the question on our Friday show and award gifts to the providers of the best questions. We gave away ver $1,000 in gifts last year and plan to do it again! Don't be left out! Be sure to visit www.naturalrunningnetwork.com
Join Richard Diaz and his guest, Coach Jenny Hadfield as they discuss an exotic running vacation: The Havana Cuba Half Marathon. Due to the US embargo, Cuba has been restricted for US travelers. This is a unique chance to visit and run on the forbidden Island of Cuba.
Few Americans have had the pleasure of visiting Cuba since we blocked trade with Cuba as far back as October of 1960 back. Through the efforts of InsightCuba, a non-profit travel organization specializing in legal people-to-people travel to Cuba for Americans, runners from the US can legally visit Cuba to participate in this event.
Running a Marathon is tough, when it takes 5 hours, even tougher. Richard Diaz shares tips with a runner who struggles to break the 5 hour barrier. Marathon Running Tips that focus on what to do and how to feed when the race takes longer than planned.
Look at any major Marathon and you’ll see that greater than half of the participants run within the 5 hour range. This may be because more and more people are meeting the challenge than ever before. Unfortunately, there is little information provided for these runners. Most of what is written on training focuses on runners who hope to run in the sub-4 hour finish time. One of our listeners asked that we address this problem and serve up some running tips. If you are running a marathon for the first time, or have struggled when you are beyond 20 miles, this show is for you!
Every runner fears hitting the wall as they reach the 20 mile mark in a marathon. They also fear gastric distress if they consume too much or too little energy on the course. Listen as Richard Diaz and Vanessa Runs interview Anthony Almada, an expert in evidence based performance nutrition as he shares some exciting news of a product that has proven to pack energy back into the working muscles without the bloat commonly associated with typical sports drinks and gels and does it in a fraction of the time of other products on the market.
I am not a Barefoot Running advocate where unnatural surfaces are concerned; however, training unshod holds a wealth of benefits that translate into your running with shoes on. We’ve brought back Dr. Emily Splichal, podiatrist and world renowned human movement specialist to share her insights on running related injuries, shoe selection and her pre-run barefoot movement prep training which all runners should add to their training racing practices. If you find yourself chronically suffering from running related injuries such as plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, shin, knee or back problems you really need to hear this episode.
You can thank me later-
Reno Stirrat and Gary Allen are two of the most remarkable marathon runners in the world. They're members of a small, elite group of runners who have run sub 3:00 marathons in each of the last 5 decades. Beginning in the 70's and all the way through the current day, they've run marathons in the sub 3:00 hour category. It's a fascinating discussion. We'll cover their journey into marathon running, how they've stayed in shape, what it was like when women entered the sport, how they feel about race fields increasing in size and diversity of talents, the 2013 Boston Marathon, the future of America in the sport of marathon running and what it's like to line up in corral #1 for over 35 years. All that plus their reflection on Joan Benoit Samuelson's win at the LA Olympics and much, much more.
Jaime Lopez is serious about his OCR training; he reads what he can to keep up with the trends in training. He monitors his work via his heart monitor, he abides to specific training protocols and logs all of the metrics afforded him though his devices. Yet still, it all seems confusing at times. Jaime is also a devoted fan of our podcast, he has reached out to Richard Diaz (the show’s host) to ask for some advice on how best to interpret the information he collects and in so doing we invited him on this episode to review his training data and discuss what we’ve learned and to make recommendations. If you, like Jaime, enjoy Spartan Racing, are training for a marathon or are new to running, this is a show you don’t want to miss!
