VARIETY could be just what you need…
I’ve got something a little bit different for you today. In-line with the theme of this email, I’m going to spice things up, by not relying solely on the written word and using a different medium: VIDEO
The video’s short and to the point and is meant to entertain and get you thinking, rather than provide you with any detailed analysis or step-by-step plan.
Now I’ve got your attention. This is basically the scenario I see frequently with runners. They want to get faster and don’t understand why they’re not doing so any more. They may have started running fairly recently and have built up to regularly to running 3 – 4 times a week. They run the same routes, in the same direction at the same time of day, at the same pace – every time.
Want to get the same results – do the same old crap – otherwise you’re going to have to change things up a bit.
- Different Energy systems
- Fuel – Nutrition/Hydration
- Different muscle fibre types;
- Mental toughness
Best Wishes & Happy Running,
PS – I didn’t intend to share this video with anyone, as it was just a ‘mock-up’ for me to learn how to do things. As with most things in life (running included), taking decisive action, even when things aren’t perfect, beats doing nothing every time. Whilst I’m not happy with the quality of the video, especially my narration. i think it has the potential to be useful. I’m also aware that I can be my own worst critic and and on reflection, I’m very new to this video-making malarkey, but I fully expect to improve with consistent practice.
