Exclusive Motivation And Running Tips By US Olympian Jeff Galloway
Motivation And Running Tips. I have been fortunate enough to work with US Olympic Marathon Runner Jeff Galloway on his eCoaching programme. Working with Jeff has been amazing. He has vast experience and despite my prior injuries has been able to guide me each step of the way. I am now part of Jeff’s official blogger programme and therefore able to share his motivation and running tips directly with you.
Motivation and Running Tips
When paced correctly, running delivers the best attitude boost you can get. Sustain this boost by pacing yourself gently during the first few miles.
A well-paced run enhances vitality for the rest of the day. Start each run at least 30 seconds a mile slower than you will run at the end.
If you have a Run Walk Run strategy that is right for you on that day, you can feel good after every run-even after the marathon.
Running is a fantastic stress reliever. Research shows that running tends to activate the conscious brain which manages the negative and anxiety hormones during and after the run.
Research shows that as runners get faster, their stride length shortens. A quicker cadence is the mechanical key to faster running. Practice your Cadence Drills each week.
The finishing of a run that is longer than you’ve run in the last 3 weeks can bestow a sense of achievement that is unique and empowering-due to positive brain circuits that are turned on.
You can run your long runs as slowly as you wish and take as many walk breaks as you wish too. Whether you walk or run you’ll get the same endurance based upon the distance covered.
