My favorite podcast thus far - which saying something as I love them all - due to the content and banter with one of my dear friends, Zach Hancock. 

Zach was the primary editor for my Simple Marathon Training book. We walk through the various parts of the book, with lots of tangents, which I think you will enjoy.

Zach is thoughtful and fun and funny and smart, which makes for a great interview - conducted in his Air Stream trailer in Boulder, CO, no less.

As a former 3:45 1,500m runner and huge track fan - he took his wife to the Prefontaine Classic a few years ago as the vacation for the summer - Zach has many thoughts on the sport, which I'm confident you'll enjoy.

Zach and I conclude the podcast with his retelling of visiting Arthur Lydiard in his home. Again, if you are a student of the sport you'll love hearing about his visit.

Thanks so much Zach for your thoughtfulness and care editing the book and thank you for a wonderful interview.

Enjoy!!!

Dr. Carwyn Sharp is, in my opinion, one of the brightest minds in endurance sports. He is the Chief Science Officer at the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Carwyn contributed significantly to my Simple Marathon Training book and in this podcast we discuss the topics he covered in the book: the importance of the long run, how concurrent strength training - where you do some strength training immediately following your run - improves running performance, the importance of sleep, and finally DOMS - delayed onset muscle soreness.

Thanks so much Carwyn for your time!

A 7-minute PR in the half marathon since the last podcast! "You couldn't punch the smile off my face" is how Mark describes his post race excitement. In this podcast we talk about the eight weeks of training leading up to the race. We focus on the importance of long runs, the role of half marathon pace running and the crucial role of Strength and Mobility (SAM) in his training. I love Mark's honesty about disliking SAM work, yet he attributes much of his success on race day to having no lower body issues in the final 3.1 miles of the race. Thanks Mark for your time. You're a joy to coach.

Thanks for your time Jonathan!
