As the days get warmer, everyone has the option of doing their runs in the early AM (when it is cool) and then maybe coming out on Monday and Wednesday nights to do a shorter recovery run with the group. Two (2) runs per day (as long as the second one is shorter and easy) is a great way to take up your mileage without injury
Great Q&A last Wednesday = thanks for coming and thanks for the questions. I just want to clarify the answer to one of the questions. We talked about running 10 minutes & then walking 1 minute. This is a system developed by Jeff Galloway and used by the Running Room. Feet on Fire encourage people to run steady in order to keep your momentum, since we feel that this gives overall better results HOWEVER - at the end of the day - "IF" something works for you - then do it. The most important fact is that you don't quit - keep running anyway that helps you stay motivated. Please also know that you can ask any of the coaches a question by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Stef, Cal and myself see these emails and will try to answer all questions as they come in.

There is a lot going on with Nutrition right now. Some of the concepts that we have been following for the last 30 years = low fat / high carbohydrate diets have been questioned because they were based on research that was flawed. Dr Timothy Noakes who wrote the LORE OF RUNNING (a Bible for Runners) and more recently WATERLOGGED has done some blogging about a new way to eat - interesting to say the least. If you are interested please have a look at these links
BTW - this is not an endorsement of this method - it is for information only
Enjoy your week
