This famous marathon runner might suggest that it's time to FIND or change to a NEW COACH or MENTOR to get your running back on track.This young man would certainly seem to have profited from his move to the man above. But he's not suggesting you move from one continent to another. Perhaps simply a MOVE TO ANOTHER CLUB or FIND NEW TRAINING PARTNERS might be just what your running needs?
2012 IS THE YEAR FOR YOUR FIRST ATTEMPT AT THE MARATHON DISTANCE OR THE YEAR WHEN YOU REALLY COMMIT TO A MARATHON P.B?
If that's case then follow this lady's example and RESOLVE TO PUT THE TRAINING IN AND INCREASE IN YOUR WEEKLY MILEAGE. Though she may suggest her 120 per week is more than YOU need.
This current U.S. marathon runner may well go in the OLYMPIC HALL OF FAME but he has to make the U.S. 2012 team first. If we learn nothing else from his training videos it's the importance of THE LONG RUN. Will one of your 2012 resolutions be to TRAIN UP TO OR EVEN OVER THE MARATHON DISTANCE?
and finally...................................if you have let your running slip or stopped running altogether perhaps ONE OF YOUR 2012 RESOLUTIONS should be TO PLAN A RUNNING COMEBACK. This man did after his DNF in the New York City marathon in 2010. He changed his mind about retirement from racing
and ran 60:18 in his COMEBACK HALF MARATHON RACE..........some return!
