Too often I see runners focusing so much on the end result of a particular race, or the outcome of an individual training session, that they do enjoy the training sessions along the way. It is the same scenario as somebody working in a job they do not like - at work they become preoccupied with the end of the day, week, year and even more to their retirement. Having a mentality that is focused on the future, or the end result, makes the destination less satisfying because you forget how to have fun in the moment. It is absolutely essential to enjoy your journey and celebrate milestones you have set, which can be as simple as giving yourself the time you need to run a session without thinking about what you will be doing when you finish. A Running Coach can remind you to be mindful while running and to create a positive attitude toward running. If you aren’t enjoying the run you won’t run well and it is unlikely you will continue to maintain your running fitness.
I have been passionate about running for as long as I can remember and my goal as a running coach is to educate as many people as possible about "how to run smarter not harder" so that they can continue to enjoy running for the rest of their lives.
