  1. Sound practical advice, Sage! Completely agree about HR data being really
    sketchy, and 220-age being VERY rough.

  2. Hey sage. Im on that border of becoming group a at my high school. I am the
    too runner in group b. the inly problem is i cant really get any better. I
    am a freshman and our workouts are literally jokes. I dont have much time
    to improve on my own. So my question is how can i bet better quickly. I
    want to join group A so i can get real workouts in and really improve

    1. +Max Scott oh man, sorry your hs segregates you guys into groups! that’s
      going to be hard as you’re going to have to listen to your coach probably.
      In the off-season generally a little bit more easy mileage (and consistency
      helps). During the season…I guess try not to run workouts too hard so you
      can race well when it counts (at the same time intensity can lead to short
      term gains if you don’t burn yourself out first…so it’s tricky)… I used
      to do extra stuff on the weekends as well! Don’t get hurt though!

    1. +David Ballew Sandi coaches me too! Usually it’s 2-easy days after every
      harder workout (in general).

  3. Not sure if you have uploaded a video already about this but how to improve
    cadence (leg turnover) would be good.

    1. +Patricia Orozco for starters: Strides!:
      …slightly downhill on a soft
      surface is ideal. Any speed training/intervals (i.e. track sessions with
      repeats faster than 5km pace) generally forces a fairly quick leg
      cadence/turnover. Other than that: focus on swinging your arms faster and
      taking shorter steps.

  4. Cool. I’ve been running 1:20 to 1:30 slower than marathon goal pace (7:51).
    Easier runs range from low 8’s to 8:45 pace. Speed workouts average low to
    mid 7’s. Thanks for the great info.
