How They Train!

Michael LaBossiere April - 2014

Age

Did you compete in high school cross country or track?

Did you compete in college cross country or track?

Lifetime personal records

When I was I kid, I thought I’d remember my times forever and did not start keeping track until late 1987. There are the PRs that I can actually document:

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

What does your typical week of running look like?

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 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 race in a different type of running shoe?

Do you use weight training?

Do you stretch? 

How has your training changed over the years?

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?
