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.

My name is Andrew and I live in the UK. I am married with 3 girls.

After a career as a Management Consultant spanning 20+ years, I left the bright lights of the city and am focusing my attention on Leadership Coaching and Development. In truth, I felt there was more to life than Microsoft PowerPoint and I have always enjoyed people development and while life as a freelancer scares the bejesus out of me – it has given me renewed energy.

At the same time as changing job, I wanted to take the opportunity to get fit again. When I say “fit” I mean properly fit. Not just a couple of weeks of effort followed by months inactivity (other than talking about getting fit and buying loads of gear) until my next ‘fitness fad’ came around!!

So back in October 2014, I decided that enough was enough and I was going try and start running – again! The challenge was that I was over-weight, really lacked any self-belief or had any real idea of where to start next. My state of mind was not helped by the fact I had recently undergone a series of knee operations which had had a slow (and painful) rehabilitation!

Despite all of this negativity, I found myself really wanting to run a marathon. On one hand it felt completely impossible, but on the other if felt like a real tangible goal, which, if I could achieve it would instil real belief and pride that I had achieved something special. I could have chosen the half-marathon – which is also a tough nut to crack – but in my head it had to be the full 26.2 miles. I really wanted to say that I was “a marathon runner”.
