Divide, Run & Conquer: Adding Two-A-Days To My Training Plan

I’m a lot of things, but I’m not more things. One of the many things I am not is a running coach. I do not run professionally in any capacity. But I’ve had a bit of success with this method, so I figured, why not share? Obviously if try them and suffer up to and including an accident we never talked, though, okay? You’ve most likely read about elite athletes performing two-a-days as part of their training plan. It’s exactly what it sounds like: two workouts in one day.

In Which Jenn Tries The Short Run

This week marked two strange runs for me. Indeed, these runs were of a style I almost never employ outside of mitigating circumstances. I’m talking about… THE TWO MILE RUN. I rarely do a short run outside of a taper or vacation. Less than five, maybe¬†four miles is extremely unusual for me. Most of my runs are in the 9-10 mile area. But when dogsitting in another town meant I had no treadmill access, I had no choice but to run outside during a week with temperatures inching close to 100 degrees. And I forgot my headphones. No music....
