Ep64: Why Does My Heart Rate Increase Throughout a Steady Run?
You may have seen this pattern too: Having finished a steady paced run you notice that your pace stayed reasonably constant, your perceived effort remained even throughout, but your heart rate data shows that your heart rate increased throughout the session. Sounds familiar? Let's discuss why that happens,,, Take a listen and let me know what you think!

Ep52: June Running Challenge - Looks Like I Need to Find More Hills
I've been thinking about what I can do next month to build upon my "Every day in May" challenge this month... Something I know I lack here in Norfolk is hilly running routes, so I'm going to set myself the challenge next month to try and achieve 1,000 meters vertical gain per week with my running. To some that won't seem like much... but to me it'll be a big step-up and will build some great leg strength! Are you going to join me?

Many of us have to stretch regularly to keep our muscles from getting overly tight in key areas... but there are some more 'bendy' runners out there who certainly don't want for range of motion; in fact these runners have too much of a good thing, if anything. Their challenge is teaching their body to control the available movement around key joints. For hypermobile runners, strength and stability work is key! Take a listen and let me know what you think!

It almost always gets better, once you're through those first few minutes and your body has figured out that it's running, but it can be so tough. Something I've learnt over the years is the importance of stressing your body in the warm-up before any race where you're going to start at a strong pace, like a 5-10km race. Get over that physiological bump in the warm-up so that it doesn't make you doubt yourself in the first few minutes of your race!

Ep13: How to Refocus After Your Marathon
In this episode of my daily running podcast I answer a question from Twitter where Daniel asks how to pick himself up again after a lousy marathon. In fact whether your marathon has gone fantastically well, or horribly badly, knowing how to approach the next few months can be the difference between continuing all the momentum you've built in your training, or letting your fitness drop-off.

It's time to retire those faithful (read: completely battered) Adidas Supernova Boosts that saw me round both Berlin and Rotterdam marathons, and break in my new pair of running shoes!

Ep8: Don't Get Caught Short on Marathon Day!
In this episode of my new daily running podcast, I've got something a bit personal to share with you... but something I know LOTS of us have struggled with in the past! Have you ever taken-on too much water before a race, then been bursting for the toilet half way round the course? It happened to me at Berlin Marathon last year, and I had a plan to make sure it wouldn't happen in Rotterdam last Sunday. The plan worked! Listen to today's episode to hear what I did differently...

Ep5: How I Lost 10kg to Run a Marathon PB
First, I want to say a massive thank you to everybody who's taken to social media to say 'well done' for my PB at Rotterdam Marathon last weekend. The legs are a little sore still, but I'm a happy boy! In this follow-up episode to yesterday's more complete debrief, I wanted to talk a little about how I went about losing 10kg in my preparation for Rotterdam Marathon. The mileage certainly helped, but it was the changes to my nutritional habits that made all the difference! I hope this will help some of you in your journey to figure out what approach to nutrition will work for you and your running :) Check out our FREE thirty day challenge: www.kinetic-revolution.com/30daychallenge/?sc=anchor

All week, I've been feeling like a kid counting-down the sleeps until Christmas day! Rotterdam Marathon is this weekend, and I'm really excited to see the return on all the training I've been doing over recent weeks and months. It's funny how your mind plays tricks on you during the taper period, as you cut-back your training before race day! All the phantom aches and pains, and what ifs that go through your mind... Time to trust in the training and get the job done! Check out our FREE thirty day challenge: www.kinetic-revolution.com/30daychallenge/?sc=anchor

Ep2: Simple Tip to Maintain Your Speed During Marathon Training
In this episode of my new daily running podcast, I want to share with you one my favourite tips for training your body to maintain speed in your legs despite all the easy paced miles you're running in training. Incorporating sets of 'strides' at the end of a long run is such a simple yet effective way of keeping the speed in your legs. Done right, you should wake up the morning after a long easy run feeling like your legs have a little more zip than they otherwise would.
