Brad Stulberg is the co-author, along with Steve Magness, of the new book "Peak Performance: Elevate Your Game, Avoid Burnout and Thrive with the New Science of Success."

Simply put, this is a must read for athletes and coaches. It's a combination of dozens of research articles that Brad and Steve have woven into a narrative that will help all of us perform at higher levels. Brad was a joy to interview and I hope you enjoy listening to the episode as much as I enjoyed recording it.

Steve has been on the podcast in an early episode of the RFP - check that out for more running specific information.

In this conversation we discuss key findings in exercise science that directly impact running performance. For example, we discus the importance of macronutrient intake after exercise. We also discuss the fact that as runner's we're in "the business of building mitochondria." It's always a pleasure to get to speak with Jeff, so thanks to him for finding time out of his hectic schedule to conduct the interview.

This episode focuses entirely on strength training and is taken from a webinar I recently conducted. If you can only listen to part of the episode, listen to the first 30 minutes as I address nine key points regarding strength training for runners. There were so many great questions asked during this webinar, so stick around to listen to the entire episode.

Tapering for the marathon is one of the most misunderstood aspects of racing a great race when the gun goes off. 

In this episode Jay talks about the importance of decreasing volume during a taper, yet keeping the intensity relatively high. He goes into detail as to how to do this, specifically talking about the length of long runs, when to run marathon pace workouts and when you should practice your fueling for the big race.

Dimity McDowell, along with her business parter, Sarah Bowen Shea, are the two mothers behind Another Mother Runner.

AMR started as a blog, chronicling the challenges of being both a mother and a runner. AMR has three books for sale, a very popular podcast, as well as a strong social media following.

This interview was a ton of fun - one of my favorites thus far.

You don't need to be a mother to get a great deal out of this interview and I hope you'll check it out as the majority of the information presented applies to all runners.

Enjoy!

This episode is a recording of a webinar I recently had the pleasure of doing for readers of my newsletter. The focus of the webinar is half marathon training, but just like the 5k and 10k webinar, many of the questions apply to all distances.

A key theme in this podcast is that sound half marathon training is extremely similar to marathon training, with the key difference being the amount of glycogen an athlete has to run the two distances.

This is easily one of my favorite episodes of the Run Faster podcast.

Drew Ryun, son of Jim Ryun, is a student of the sport and someone who I love talking track with. Drew and I meet through running camps as he asked me to speak at the Jim Ryun Running Camp roughly 10 years ago. What a treat.

In this interview we are simply two track geeks talking track, which should be informative for both the long term running fan and new runners alike. We talk a bit about our own running, but obviously much of the conversation is Drew sharing stories about his father, one of the greatest milers of all time.

Thanks so much for your time Drew!

This episode is a recording of a webinar I recently had the pleasure of doing for readers of my newsletter. While the focus of the webinar is on 5k and 10k training, many of the questions apply to all distances. Many of the questions focused on how to organize a week of training and/or a training cycle, which are both important if you're going to race to your potential.

This webinar was a lot of fun and I will definitely be doing more webinars in the future.

Noah Droddy is a thoughtful, serious and colorful character in US distance running. While most people know more about his race day looks - long hair, sunglasses, backwards hat and mustache - than his PRs, Noah is quickly becoming one of the top distance runners in the US, with great performances at the US 10-mile championships in 2016 and the 2017 Houston Half Marathon.

This interview was a lot of fun and I look forward to watching him and his fellow Root Running Project teammates in some workouts in Boulder this spring.

If you want to read some fun articles about Noah and his appearance at the 2016 US Olympic Track and Field Trials, go to CoachJayJohnson.com and search for this episode.
