How They Train!

Brittney Barnes - September 2017


Did you compete in high school cross country or track?

How many years have you been running?

Lifetime personal records

What running events do you train for or what are your training goals?

Consider your training over the past 6 months to one year.  How many miles a week do you typically run when not injured and consistently running?

What does your typical week of running look like?

When I can train consistently I do a lot of treadmill work due to my work schedule - a daily 5k or 4 mile treadmill run during the week and with 5-9M longer runs on weekends that incorporate sprint work and plyometric exercises for more explosiveness and foot turnover.

How does your training vary over the course of a year?

Do you take recovery or down time?

Do you peak for certain races?

How much sleep do you usually get at night?

What injuries have hampered your training over the past year? 

Do you take any dietary or medical supplements?

What type of running shoes do you prefer?

Do you stretch? 

What are your favorite running routes?

What running resources do you like that would benefit someone else?

What examples can you give of specific training methods, and what were the results?

What advice do you have for beginning or experienced runners to help them with their training?
