Welcome to episode 175 of the Final Surge Podcast where today we welcome back Tinman Elite coach Tom Schwartz to the podcast. Tom is working on his doctoral dissertation for exercise science and we talk about that and how you can get involved too. We also catch up with how some of the Tinman team are doing. You can check out Tom's coaching which he uses Final Surge for at Run Fast Coach.

:45 How is everyone holding up?

1:52 You had some guys in Phoenix racing this past weekend, how is the racing going?

3:36 Any more races on the books?

5:00 How has Sam been doing, haven't seen much of him recently?

5:57 Talk to us about your dissertation

10:59 In that example during that 20% are you giving that 48 more speed work?

12:29 Shouldn't the slower one be working on speed more?

13:39 When you are looking at those online calculators about projected race times are they accurate or would they be more accurate with two data points?

17:17 Two kids both ran cross, but one ran over the winter and one did soccer, does this test show you what you need if one wasn't properly trained in the aerobic base for the last few months?

21:21 I have heard of this test with 300/600 would that show you the same thing?

22:33 Where are you at with the dissertation?

24:23 What are you looking for as far as test subjects?

26:46 You mentioned they will run the 1600 and 400 time trial, after that is there further testing, or is that it?

28:43 How many more individuals are you looking for?

Welcome to episode 174 of the Final Surge Podcast where today we welcome professional runner Christine Thorn to the program. Four years ago Christine was playing basketball on a scholarship in college. Last year she ran 11th in the Steeplechase at the US National Championships. We talk to Christine about the path she took to get here, the coaching she is involved with, and what she hopes for next year on the track.

4:15 You ran with your high school team in Junior High right?

5:00 Did you run in high school?

5:54 Did you run on the side on college or no just basketball?

11:15 How did you feel coming back to run the 1500 finals after?

12:00 Did you consider yourself more of a cross or track runner?

14:58 Was it your college coach that convinced you to keep doing this?

17:16 15th in the country in D2 is good, but that is a long ways away from someone who will run in the Olympic Trials. How was it mentally getting here?

19:10 Since Corona hit have you done any racing?

20:28 If I remember Jeff's training correctly he does a lot on speed development and sprinting?
