Today I’m talking with Running Coach and Podcaster Denny Krahe from the Diz Runs Podcast. He has a new book out – Be Ready on Race Day and we’re talking about tips for injury prone runners, taking walking breaks, how he does virtual coaching and more!

New here? I’m Monica – I started Run Eat Repeat.com to share my journey to train for my 1st marathon and trying to lose weight. I ran that marathon, lost 20 pounds and the site grew into a huge online community and this podcast.

Follow along on @RunEatRepeat Instagram and Run Eat Repeat on Facebook.


Warm Up:

Thank you for chiming in on last week’s poll – Marry F Kill… I mean – the poll on if I should mix in personal stuff with running and eating stuff here.

Next poll: Should I post the audio to my Q&A videos as a podcast? I can do that in separate episodes in case you watch the videos… but I kinda like listening to things over watching videos lately.

I made the churro waffles – check out the post in the show notes.

Right now I’m listening to a book called “Why Won’t You Apologize – Healing Everyday Betrayals and Everyday Hurts”


Now let’s get to Denny Krahe is a running coach, podcaster and author of the book Be Ready on Race Day. He specializes in treating and preventing injuries (and making tons of podcasts). You can find him at…

His book Be Ready on Race Day is available here.

From his site:

In Be Ready on Race Day, I’ve outlined every step I take in creating custom training plans for my clients so that you can create a plan for yourself that perfectly fits your needs!

If you use the information in the book and follow the steps as they have been laid out you won’t have to worry about feeling unprepared on race day.

Want to get faster? I’ll tell you how.
Worried about the injury bug? I’ll explain the little things you can do to stay healthy throughout the training cycle.
Thinking about stepping up to a new distance for the first time? You’ll know how to increase your mileage intelligently in the build up to the big day.
