This week, download here, the Geeks welcome Brian Hatfield (@rungooserun) to the show. Brian, a 9 time multi-marathoner, bringsthe perspective of a regular guy who decided to take up running almost five years ago. The discussions follows topics that new runners face as they begin the journey to becoming endurance athletes.
Brian gives us his insight on new runners and recommends training in groups where there are runners who are better than you are as this can serve to make you better. He however does note that the amount of information that is available these days compared to just five years ago when he started is a lot better and easier to get to. The guys also revisit the conversation on distance versus heart rate training, and finally discuss Brian’s insight on how to find the right running shoe.
