    Marathon Running Tips for those who Struggle to Break 5 Hours

    in Sports

    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!

    in Sports

    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.

    Running Shoe Selection and Running Form

    in Sports

    The Running Shoe Industry does not design shoes that help us perform better and safer; they make shoes based on market research and fashion trends.  Listen as Jay Dicharry PT and gait analyst helps us sort through the confusion of running shoe selection.  The industry served up high heels, heavy cushioned shoes for nearly 30 years. They then did an about face and went minimalist to chase the trend.  Now they have turned back to heavily cushioned shoes.  Clearly we, they or both are sorely confused!  Nothing could be worse for a marathon runner than to shift from one extreme to the other and back again.  Jay Dicharry is one of the most knowledgeable experts in the field of running mechanics today.  This is a great show for all runners to hear.
