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.

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.

Mark Hansen is one of Jay's online clients, and like all of Jay's online clients, he's a busy adult who leads a hectic life. Mark ran competitively in high school, learning some good habits and some no so good. In this podcast Mark talks about the things he's learned from Jay and how many of the things he now does in training differ from his pervious approach to training.

Coach John O'Malley is one of the best high school running coaches is in the country. He's had tremendous success as the boys cross country and track coach at Sandburg HS in Illinois. Not only has he had success in cross country, but his boys 4x800m relays consistently run under 7:50, a great indicator that Coach O'Malley is more than capable as a track coach.

This episode is an excerpt from his full interview at HighSchoolRunningCoach.com.

Thanks for your time Coach O'Malley, both in your training you've shared at HSRC and to prepare for this interview.
