Jeff Gaudette, founder & head coach at Runners Connect, talks to us about how to train seriously for the 5k distance, something that a lot of runners fail to do either by choice (attracted more by the lights of a half or full marathon) or by making common mistakes. As a writer for the website I am obviously biased but if you have not done so already I seriosuly recommend you head over to www.runnersconnect.net and check out their coaching packages.
Jeff Gaudette has competed all over the world and recorded Olympic Trials qualifying times in the marathon and 10,000 meters. He began coaching in 2005 while a member of the Hansons-Brooks professional team. With a 13:59 PB over 5k and 2:22 at marathon, he founded 'RunnersConnect' in 2011 with the goal of helping runners find real, research-based answers to questions about their training and avoiding the latest fads.

FANCY HELPING US?
• The success of a podcast ultimately boils down to how much Apple advertises it, which is directly affected by its ratings & reviews. Runchatlive had over 2500 downloads last week, but has very few ratings!
• PLEASE help us grow by leaving a rating & review on Apple Podcasts or iTunes. iPhone users can do it from the app on your phone, android users need to go to iTunes on a laptop/pc. Thanks in advance!
