I always feel motivated when listening to your podcast! Your enthusiasm, humor, education, and podcast topics helped me get back into running after my first AND second baby! “I can do hard things!” I find that I am more than 1 minute per mile slower post babies, which is hard to accept as I like competing with myself! I wonder if it’s due to my change in nutrition, or sleep, or both?! I would love to learn about quick, practical snacks for a full scheduled, working mom of two, trying to get back to quick paced running, please! I appreciate your knowledge, inspiration, and time. Sincerely, Berenise Lemus Balguma

Q&A | Training Tips for Older Runners

Coach Nicole Hart answers a question from an older runner. Learn more about MTA Coaching here.

“I am now 75 years old and still run about 20 miles/week. I have run a few marathons, (and many half marathons) but not in a few years. What do you recommend for an old guy like me for getting back in marathon shape? Should I pay attention to my heartrate or to my pace? What should my optimal running weight be? My goal would be to run as best I can in order to make a judgment as to whether or not I might be able to qualify for Boston. So, what should my goal be?” -Herb

Faster Marathon Than Expected

Congrats to MTA coaching client Marly who actually just finished 1,000 miles for the year. She ran a full marathon on July 31st.

Today I did a full virtual marathon with the Social Distance Run 2. The run was easier compared to last week but air quality was still moderate to severe from wild fires. It has been over 2 years when I ran my last marathon (5:02). Today my time was 4:39:46 (5 minutes faster than my target). Thanks to Coach Lynn for all he training and support and to Angie & Trevor for your resources and challenges. This group is awesome! -Marly
