I get asked a lot why the runners that I coach are so successful. That’s an easy answer.
To be successful (in any sport, not only running) you have to follow these three things:
1- Practice. A lot. By doing it right every time in practice (proper distance and pace) or correcting errors if you are not doing it right. For running this means running as much as you can, by gradually increasing your miles as you get closer to a goal race or to where you want to be fitness-wise.
2- Have a passion for the activity that you are participating in. For running this means enjoying the training. If you are running just because “your friends are” that may not be passion. You have to be willing to work hard at running. If you work hard and realize that with hard work and following the plan comes success, that’s passion.
3- Have a good coach. You need someone to hold you accountable, someone knowledgeable who will get to know you and understand what motivates you, what pace you should be running for each workout, and someone who cares about you and will stay in touch to make sure you have the best chance at reaching your goals.
If you have these three things you will improve your running 100 times faster than trying to do it without them. That’s not an exaggeration. Ask the runners that I coach. They’ll back me up.
It’s science. The nervous system learns and the body adapts to your physical needs and what you teach them. That’s why it is important to do it right, and as often as possible.
100% of the runners that I coach meet their goal if they do what I coach them to do and have the passion to work hard. Some go way beyond their goal.
