Take a bet for charity! Hanson’s-Brooks Distance project member Luke Humphrey is competing in the Houston Marathon and raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Bonus: if you donate $25 or more AND Luke breaks 2:14 in the marathon, you
We now have our early 2014 clinic and group training options up on the site! Look under “clinics” to see all the options. We have everything from “couch to 5k” for beginners all the way up to Boston Marathon training groups. T
Over the past few years, I have made an effort to get at the heart of some of the finer details of marathon running. Training always can take you a long way, but from a physiological standpoint, we simply have a hard time making it the full distance
Saw this little gem today on Twitterverse: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/24002340/?i=3&from=rearfoot%20strike Not sure what to make of it. Basically looked at 20 sub elite runners and compared running economy at 3 different speeds and sepa
Ok, so I was going to do a Hot Topic on tapering, but I have been working on the nutrition chapter of my forthcoming half marathon book. I was looking over the chapter I wrote for Hansons Marathon Method as well as, doing some casual research in curr
Stumbled accross this little gem this morning while looking for justification for my own poor splits today. As usual, feel free to discuss. http://www.runnersworld.com/race-training/training-heat?page=single
Hey Luke! I wanted to write and thank you for the awesome training program. I ran the Chicago marathon yesterday and crushed my old PR by almost 15 minutes! I finished in 3:49:50. I am really happy! I can honestly say that I've never felt so strong going into a marathon. This was my third marathon ever and in my previous two, I had bonked at 22 miles and had to run walk just to finish those races. Not this time! I proudly ran all 26.2 with no walking and no bonk. Love it! I am sure it was your training program as this was the first time I used it. You can be sure it's all I'll use from now on as I work on my quest for a BQ. I do plan to up my mileage though - I used the 30-40 mile weeks plan and next time I'm going to do 50-60 mile weeks.
Thanks and happy running!
