We had a pretty solid episode this week, even without a guest. Evan’s been living the runner’s dream life in Colorado this week and had some cool stories for us. Apparently everything you’ve heard about adjusting to altitude is true – it’s really difficult. We recapped NCAAs and Rupp’s 59:47 in Rome, and we talked about our weeks in running. We also covered the gamut of the fantastic listener questions, including topics spanning:
- How to go about building up to 120 miles per week and how mileage increases affect easy paces
- Whether the sub-4:00 mile is still as prestigious as it once was and whether it still deserves to be, given that high schoolers do it every year now
- How Evan felt running Magnolia Road in Colorado this week
- Whether 2018 be a good year for discus throwers
- Why Roman Reigns is allowed to systematically break the Admiral-Lord Mountevans Unified Rules of Professional Wrestling through the use of illegal body armor to protect himself during the course of matches with legitimately dressed competitors
- Why track races jump straight from 5000m to 10000m and if there’s room for an intermediate distance. And why don’t our races just double in distance all the way up?
