Art Asked by Runner's World to Serve on Expert Panel - See May 2000 Issue
For many years, Art has answered literally hundreds of questions e-mailed to me by visitors to my website and he has some exciting news to share. Beth Eck, an editor with Runner's World Magazine, asked Art a few months ago to serve as a panel member for the "Medical and Training Advice" section of the magazine. Please check out the May, 2000 issue as Art responded to a question regarding the challenges of running with slower partners. Art looks forward to answering more questions in the very near future.
Art Featured in the August Issue of Runner's World
Back in March, Art was interviewed by Hal Higdon, senior editor of Runner's World Magazine for an article that appeared in their August, 1999 issue. The article featured three different 12-week training schedules: one for the beginner/novice, the intermediate, and the advanced competitor.
Art was asked to design a plan for the beginner/novice (with the ability to enter the training plan to walk/run 10 miles) that will enable her/him to complete the marathon in around five hours. This was a challenging task given the limited time frame requirements for the training program that Runner's World specified. Nevertheless, Art was able to create a schedule that included both a 20 and a 22-mile training session.
Art hopes you were able to read the August issue of Runner's World. Please e-mail him your comments about the training program and its effectiveness in preparing you for your marathon.
