How many years have you been running?

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 (sprints to ultra-distance) do you train for or what are your training goals?

What does your typical week of running look like?

When not training I will run only about 4 days a week instead of 6, and my Sunday run will be 10 miles. I'm a lot lazier then.  My body needs a break from it.

Do you take recoery or down time?

Do you peak for certain races?

How much sleep do you usually get at night?

What time of the 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?

How has your training changed over the years?

What specific taining methods do yu use that have produced results?

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