Long distance running is much like any other fitness training. If you want to improve, you need a good plan that has a progressive nature.
If you are new to this game, you need a solid foundation to build on.
Having a running program is not the only thing that you need. Sound advice and running tips should be taken from someone who has "walked the walk" ...... Or in this case; "Ran the run"
Hi, my name is James Atkinson from Jimshealthandmuscle.com . I'm a qualified fitness coach / personal trainer and I have a fair bit of running advice that I would like to share with you.
When I was around 18 years old, I was a terrible runner! In fact, I failed the basic fitness test for army entrance on running alone, and I failed big time!
Several years later, I was clearing 1.5 mile running circuits in 8 minutes and 22 seconds and could easily run a marathon any day of the week!
I would like to share my knowledge and training experiences with you. If you are a beginner when it comes to running, this information will no doubt give you advice that will probably not have even crossed your mind before.
If you are already a runner and are looking to make more progression, you are also in the right place.
I know that it is easy to get stuck on a training plateau, so I have also added some information and training methods to this book that will help you leave the plateau behind.
Some of the chapters include:
Why should you take my advice? My story…
Accountability, Commit To Your Goal!
Where to start
When to eat, what to eat
Your bread and butter training “Steady state”
Training on a track
Running for time
Running for distance
Running with weight
Dealing with blisters and chaffing
Staying injury free
Putting it all together and your training plan
All of the information that I provide is written from my own experience as a long distance runner.
I believe that by learning from my mistakes and my advice, you will hit your goals a lot quicker than making these mistakes yourself. Believe me; some of these mistakes can be very painful! As you will soon find out from some of the anecdotes that I am about to share with you.
So grab your running shoes and let’s get started!
All the best
