Nate Jenkins is our seventh guest on the Run Faster Podcast.
Nate is an American marathon runner who has taken the time to share his training logs over his career at nateruns.blogspot.com. Nate does a wonderful job explaining why he does what he does. He’s self effacing and the first to be critical of any mistake he’s made in his training.
Nate finished seventh at the 2008 Olympic Trials, in a star-studded field. He has a marathon PR of 2:14.
Nate started running seriously in 8th grade and learned by his senior year in high school that high mileage worked for him.
In this interview he talks about his interpretation of Renato Canova’s training system and how he’s implemented that into his training. He also discusses his use of workouts like Aussie Quarters and the Mona Fartlek.
This interview runs a few minutes longer than most for the simple fact that I had so many questions for Nate.
Thanks for your time Nate and we wish you the best as you continue your running career.
