Rank #1: Episode 14 – Karin Goes Couch to 10k to Sprints?!
This week the guys switch gears and bring on a sprinter from North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Karin Femi (@LooseLeafRunner) never ran growing up and suffered from knee pain as an adult. On a whim, she did a 1k fun run and found she like it. So, Karin did what most runners do — she tried a longer race, the 10k. Karin quickly found that her talent and passion were for shorter distances. She connected with a sprint club and hasn’t stopped sprinting. Karin is now chasing her dream of qualifying for the Canadian Track & Field Championships in the 100m and 200m! Karin also supports the running community as a personal trainer focused on injury prevention.

This week the guys discuss a different way to approach the marathon. The Hanson brothers have coached a ton of marathoners, including a couple of Olympians.

Not kidding! Joe shares his experience with this program, and how it helped him cut almost 17 minutes off his time.
Here is the original article and training program from Running Times (3 pages and free!)
