If your training feels stagnant, boring or you’re not getting the results you want, there is good news. Here are our recommendations to help you break out of your rut and start running better than ever.
Run with purpose
Having something to run for makes running more exciting. Setting goals such as finishing a race can be helpful in keeping you motivated. You may want to also set a purpose or intention for each time you run. For example, today’s run may be to focus on your running technique while tomorrow’s run is to take your time to ‘stop and smell the roses’.
Find the right coach
The right coach can help you stay motivated and get you results by giving you a sense of accountability and direction. Your coach will help take the stress out of wondering if you’re training enough or the right way. They will also push you when you need it to ensure you’re not only having fun but getting results as well.
Mix it up
Not every run should be difficult or fast. You need to mix it up in order to prevent burn out and progress quickly. Having a variety of workouts that are fun and different is helpful but make sure you have plenty of runs that are easy, fun and enjoyable.
Improve your running technique
Focusing on a more efficient running technique is oftentimes relaxing and a form of moving meditation. It can also be challenging but rewarding at the same time since you’ll see and feel results the more you practice.
We hope this helps you run with passion, enjoyment and results. You can always contact us with any questions and to learn more about our comprehensive and personalized Online Coaching Plans.
