Thoughts on improving running

by on Dec.22, 2009, under Wisdom

I recently asked a very accomplished running friend some advice on training and getting faster at my running.  He had a lot of good tips, but also some excellent quotes/thoughts that I enjoyed:

“You just have to train hard and believe that the breakthrough is around the corner.”

“Your body has to be convinced your really serious before allowing for the physiological adaptations that permit you to reach a new level.”

So, patience is a big piece to the puzzle that’s not talked about enough.

Remember these words from the running doctor, George Sheehan, when he wrote, “What should I do after running a marathon?” Sheehan anwers his own question with “Run another, and another, and find that much more about myself.” With experience comes faster times. Sheehan would agree that repeatedly putting yourself through this cycle, You will “become the person you were meant to be.”

Thanks Bob.
