Oct 9, 2018

Kat and Sean get to go back and forth a bunch on this call with the coach and running client.  You'll be able to relate to at least something from the call but there is enough going on we just don't know what exactly! Enjoy.

Oct 8, 2018

Brian has some legit challenges for his schedule so we are just finding ways to make it happen without letting it overwhelm him.  Enjoy the call!

Sep 28, 2018

Caroline is nailing her runs.  She is hitting all of her goals so now we are focusing on putting some urgency into picking up her pace.  The transition happens for most runners at some point in training and the time is now!

Sep 27, 2018

Steph has gone from training for the hottest 100 miler around to training for one with some of the most elevation gain out there, 26,000+ feet of gain.  We don't have much time so enjoy the show on how we are attacking the training and the race!

Sep 24, 2018

Dan and Liza share their thoughts on recent training and open up in some questions that really have nothing to do with running!

Sep 21, 2018

Kat and Sean catch us up on Kat's training and then we do a deep dive to learn more about how they both think about things that don't have to do with running.

Sep 13, 2018

Red is in a pretty good place right now finding the time to get the training in with less stress on the table.  It's all a part of the flow of life and training and we think you'll be able to relate.

Sep 11, 2018

Kat suffered a set back during some of her big downhills at the big relay she recently did.  Today, we talk about the best ways to get around a new and frustrating injury. Enjoy the show.

Sep 6, 2018

We changed it up a bit and decided to take some questions from our Team BU runners.  Why is my upper back hurting late in long runs?  If I only run once a week, what should I focus on?  When should I run fasted, if at all?  All these and more. If you like the format, let us know and we will get more content like this for you!

Sep 6, 2018

Steph knew from day one that her coaching and training would be unique from a timing and periodization standpoint.  So, when she wanted to try her second 100 miler in less than 3 months, we knew we had to find quality in her training instead of quantity. This call is all about that balance and the goals for this training cycle.

Sep 3, 2018

Susan is getting ready for some big mountain running this fall and has to deal with one of the most common and annoying injuries as runners, a sprained ankle.  Enjoy the show!

Sep 3, 2018

Caroline is a runner from California with grandkids and a big heart to see what she is capable of doing.  Listen to another call to see how her training is going! Thanks for listening.

Aug 31, 2018

Meet Brian from Michigan!  A relatively new BAC runner with big goals to run the Bandera 50k.  We pretty much decided his journey would be interested right before this call so there wasn't a proper introduction. Enjoy the show and getting to know him!

Aug 30, 2018

Dan gets a taste of the brutality of 100 miles in the Texas heat.  Liza has her own pacing stories from Leadville.  Dan also builds some legit running karma on his weekend.  Also, his training up to this point! Enjoy the show.

Aug 29, 2018

Kat started the call with some uncertainty and Sean made sure to fix that right away.  Confidence and training with a coach, it's a fine line and the good coaches put their runners at ease. Enjoy the show!

Aug 29, 2018

Missy just started taking classes for nursing school. No, she didn't stop working, and no she did not stop running. How do we deal with crazy time management issues as runners?

Aug 26, 2018

Steph had one heck of an experience at Habanero.  We go over the race that was, try to learn as much as we can from it, and figure out what is next in this recap show.  If you are ever going to run a 100 miler, you'll learn a lot from this one!  Enjoy the show.

Aug 21, 2018

Candy is getting back to her routine after a little dental issue.  Her training has been pretty consistent but things are about to ramp up! Enjoy the show.

Aug 16, 2018

So much to cover logistically, physically, and mentally for any 100 miler but when it is a travel race with little to no crew it gets trickier.  We cover lots about the mental approach as well.  Enjoy the show!  Want to support Steph...here is a way.

Aug 15, 2018

Dan is hitting some bigger goals and staying the course. We talk about lots of things that everyday runners think about during a long training cycle and how our decisions change based on these training efforts. Enjoy!

Aug 3, 2018

Kat has some concerns about her training and questions if she will be able to do some of the things she has set out to do. Sean sets her straight!  She is also getting ready for a big trip to Iceland! Enjoy the show.
