Running and Triathlon Coaching

milton runningHow to pick the right marathon
Picking the right marathon should focus on the right weather for training for a marathon. That will depend where you live.
Good example is where I live in Florida. If the marathon is a fall marathon (e.g. Disney, Space Coast, Chicago, New York and etc.) it’s probably though to beat the heat and will have difficulty running the pace you want to run in your training.
Then we have the spring marathons, (Georgia, Boston and etc.) the best time to train for a marathon! The best running weather in the south is probably January through early April.

The downside is, no matter where you live in the south and you want some good training for a marathon, but you probably have to travel for that 26.2 adventure. I will take the traveling vs training in miserable, hot, humid, rainy, awful, draining weather.

Pick the right marathon for you and your training or you might hate running afterwards….

Proper Running Form


What is the importance of good running form? Will it really change the way you run? In the past, I have seen fast, small-framed females get injured secondary to poor running form and, on the contrary, big guys who can run forever because of an efficient and biomechanically sound running form. Is there a correlation? Or, are there other small factors – mileage, recovery, nutrition, shoe fit, etc – that can effect one’s health status?

So, the controversial question remains – what kind of role does proper running form play when it comes to remaining injury free? What has your own experience been like when it comes to changing your running form? Has the change relieved any persistent aches and pains? Aided in any PR’s? We want to know!
