Q&A with Coach: Running Surfaces, Sunglasses, and Seasonal Running

Welcome to the second episode of Q&A with Coach!

QA with Coach Episode 2

I’m absolutely loving this show – and I hope you’re finding value in getting your questions answered and hearing other runner’s questions as well. Learning from others (just like in school) can be a helpful experience.

In today’s episode, I answer four questions about sunglasses, coming back to running after being sick, how to split your time on the trails before a road marathon, and how to take advantage of the seasons to race faster.

Rather than answering these questions on Twitter, I like giving a more detailed, nuanced answer that can help you even more with your running.

Ready? Let’s get to it.
