    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

Laura B. (Go! Running Tours) ,

Content good enough to convert a former anti-podcast person

Every topic so far has been super insightful and also very relatable for me, personally, and I imagine for most runners. Looking forward to continuing to learn more through these. As someone who has never had a coach, the content is especially helpful, especially after running without much guidance for 14 years.

Life is a marathon ,

I love Deb

Thanks for humility and your inclusion for every type of runner.
