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?

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

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 race in a different type of running shoe?  If so, what is it?

Do you use weight training?

Do you stretch? 

What are your favorite running routes?

How has your training changed over the years?

What examples can you give of specific training methods (for example, long slow distance, hill repeats, track intervals, trail running, etc.) that have produced results?

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