How They Train!

Perha Varley - October 2012

Age

How many years have you been running?

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 run intervals? 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 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?
