Running Q&A Grab Bag with Coach Doug Hay

Every day, I answer questions from runners all over the world. Today, I’m getting some help!

Come say hi on Instagram!

Usually, I fire off answers as fast as I can. Whether that’s on Facebook or Twitter, I try to be as responsive as possible.

But sometimes, life gets in the way. I simply don’t have the time to answer all of your questions – especially when a single SR email goes out to about 80,000 runners…

That does not, however, mean I’m not paying attention.

In fact, I often save your running questions to get to them later. And that’s exactly what we’re doing today.

Joining me as the SR Podcast’s first co-host is my friend, fellow coach, and ultra runner Doug Hay.

Fresh off his sub-15hr run at the Ultra Run of Champions (snagging him a sweet belt buckle!), Doug is helping us get to the bottom of some of your toughest questions.

Let’s dive in.

The Big Q&A Episode

Doug Hay Podcast

Doug and I cover a lot in this episode:

  • If you get lost on a long run and run longer than anticipated, should you cut an upcoming run?
  • Who benefits from a 10-day training cycle rather than a normal 7-day training cycle?
  • Should rest days be dedicated completely to rest, or is some light exercise ok?
  • How do you know if you’re working out too hard?

And he also makes sure to tease me mercilessly throughout the podcast to keep things entertaining 😉
