Getting out the door can be the hardest part of running or walking. Coach Mwangi put together 10 awesome ways to motivate yourself to get moving this Spring. Check them out!
With all of the racing happening this weekend, I thought I would spend a little bit of time talking about a running and racing strategy that often leads to positive results. Negative splitting is based on the idea that the last miles of a run or race should be run faster than the first ones. A slower start and a faster finished often leads to a better race time, whether we’re talking about a casual runner or the world’s fastest marathoners.
As our season of racing begins to wind down, you may find yourself looking back at the year and evaluating how you did with your running. You may even find yourself setting some new goals, and thinking about all of the tools available to you and how they can help you get to the next level. One of the best tools you have could very well be the one strapped around your wrist.
I don’t know why I don’t get this question more often. I do think that a lot of runners ask themselves the question, then probably try to answer it for themselves. Or perhaps they just do what their fellow runners are doing. Nothing wrong with that, if all the little but important things are being done. If there is any guesswork, however, I’d like to take the some of it out of it by covering what you should do right away, and what can wait a little while.
It’s a topic I’ve written about before but it’s always relevant so I’d like to revisit it and touch on some of the most important things to consider when deciding how to fuel up before a run.
