    Love your site anne and I respectfully envy you for living in Washington D.C. I love it there and there are awesome places to run along the Hudson. I wish you the very best in your running career and business. If you ever need a running friend am not far away:) Hope you get some PR’s in 2014:)

    Hi Anne!
    I’m going to give your 10 mile training plan that you wrote in 2010 a try! I’ve had knees problems and don’t believe running 4,5,6 times a week is necessary either. I really like that you have 3 days and similar crosstraining to what I do. I look forward to it, thank you!

    Hi Anne,

    I was wondering if I could get your opinion about running shoes. I am a relatively new runner (training for my first half marathon this fall!). I am reaching the point where I need to purchase new shoes. The Brooks that I love have come up with a new model/version. In your opinion, is it best to go with the newest version of the same shoe or stick with what I’ve been running in? Thanks so much!

      I would try the new ones and see if you like them! That matters most – if they don’t feel as good, stick with your original model. The older model is probably cheaper now, too!

    Hi! I’m new to your site :) you have a lot of great information and great tips! I’m a new runner (started last year) and also a new blogger (started last month) and I am loving both :)

    I did a half recently and am training for a full. I only run 3 days a week also, but I haven’t been doing tempo runs or hill training. I have a left knee injury so trying to focus more on endurance and not on speed.
    What are your thoughts? I follow the Jeff Galloway plan (two 30 minute sessions during the week and one weekend LR); but my 30 minute sessions are normally slow and steady just like my long run…should I change this to have more tempo workouts and hill work?

      Hi there! Welcome to my blog and to the blog world! Regarding the running, if you want to get a specific time for the full, you’ll want to do some variation in running speed/hills/etc. But obviously it will depend how your knee does. It’d probably be best to talk to a running coach for more help! Also, do lots of icing that knee and foam rolling! Good luck!
