Happy 2007 !
Have a Great 2007 Running Year!
NEW YEAR, NEW YOU !
With the start of a new year comes the chance to set goals, do something you've never done before and oh yeah...get in shape. Here are a few ways to get started and make the year great!
SET SOME GOALS
So what do you want to do this year? Lose weight, get faster, stay injury-free? Maybe all of the above? Whatever your objective, we've got the right plan to get the job done
Regular 10-15Km training forms the foundation of all-around fitness, because it includes ample amounts of the three core components of distance running--strength, stamina, speed.
Whether you want to run your first marathon or your fastest, you've to plan n train!!.
You don't have to be crazy to run an ultramarathon. You just have to be ready.
MAKE RUNNING SIMPLE
Although we runners claim to be minimalists, we're good at making running complicated. It has to be the right time of day, the temperature just so, shoes broken in but not broken down, iPod fully charged, not to mention the pressure of making a time goal. It's a wonder we ever get out the door. We say give your running a fresh start by shedding physical and mental clutter.
As the people you live with may have already asked, do you need all of that running stuff? Whether it's race T-shirts, training shoes, or memorabilia, you can probably get rid of a good chunk of your running possessions without any great loss, making it easier to find the stuff you really use and, perhaps, buying a little domestic harmony.
Knowledge and skill make some of us faster--but good running experiences can be had by all.
