How They Train!

Vince Molosky - March 2011

Age

How many years have you been running?

Lifetime personal records

My memory is not very keen, so some of the numbers might be off:

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?

I previously had mile markers painted on my routes, but they have since faded or been destroyed by road construction. I do not pay much attention to my mile splits but try to consistently decrease my overall route times, thus always running faster.

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

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