MN Episode 17: Split Runs, Knee Problems, Racing with Heart Rate

28 March

Join Coach Patrick from Marathon Nation ( for another weekly running podcast.


This week Coach P continues the Newsletter Q and A session with Sam Y. Sam asks a few great questions, including:


Is it beneficial if I split my long run over 48 hours but train at a faster pace? Does doing this improve both my speed and endurance?
Should I race based on heart rate?
I have knee problems. Should I alternate between zero drop shoes and cushioned shoes?
