In the past 5 years I’ve interviewed many running coaches, world class and amateur athletes and doctors. At the end of the conversation, I often ask the question:
“There are a lot of people listening who want to improve in their running, what recommendations do you have those looking to become stronger, healthier and happier athletes?“
All of the guests shared very good insights, some of the answers were mentioned numerous times, such as the importance of consistency and patience in training, and learning to listen to the signals from your body.
That being said, there were many other tips, often nuggets that can help give you another perspective on certain challenging situations. I’m extremely thankful for each and everyone of these guests for sharing their stories.
