How They Train!

Juanita Chalmers - November 2013


How many years have you been running?

Did you compete in high school cross country or track

Did you compete in college-cross country or track?

Lifetime personal records

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

What does your typical week of running look like?

I run 4 to 5 days a week. I prefer a midweek long or doubles to adding a 6th day. Sometimes I swim as cross-training, though the frequent evening thunderstorms get in the way. I have one complete “rest” day a week.

How has your training changed over the years?

Do you take recovery or down time?

Do you peak for certainn races?

How much sleep do you usually get at night?

What time of day do you normally run?

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 use weight training?

Do you stretch? 

What are your favorite running routes?

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

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