Run in Health 

Most of our daily workouts are best spent having more fun and enduring less pain and suffering with the goal of attaining lifelong robust health and spiritual balance. It’s a physiological fact that the ideal amount of intensity of training and the time it takes to affect the body positively varies greatly from person to person, depending on their overall health and well being. There are as many real-life examples of how this process is working right, or not, in people as there are runners. Read More

Every day is training day. The important take-way from any given workout should be; what did I learn? A good coach does not have injured athletes. Some coaches today are better organizers than teachers.

You tend to jump ahead at that stage and then maintain a steady rate of improvement for 7-10 years. Read More

Run Together

Whatever your age or ability, you can share the starting line of a local road race, marathon or ultra-marathon with the best runners in the world. Everyone is welcome. Getting together with a training partner, an informal group of friends, or joining a running club can provide mutual encouragement and support when you need it most.

Breathing Technique

If your slumped, if your tense, especially if the muscles of your chest and shoulders are tied up, imagesyour breathing becomes constricted. Loose, flexible shoulders allow your chest to expand. Beyond that, there are as many breathing techniques as there are Somatic’s disciplines with breathing gurus.

Ultra Training

Both The Marathon and The Ironman once represented pinnacle accomplishments for recreational and elite runners alike. Without diminishing these events in any way, finishing a 50K, 50-mile, 100K or 100 mile is now widely accepted as the crowning achievement of endurance for those seeking to get the most out of themselves physically, mentally and spiritually. While it’s certainly true that Ultra Running is no longer reserved for extreme athletes on the fringe of the sport, the learning curve is, in fact, quite steep for first time runners tackling the longest distances imaginable on the most challenging race courses in the world.
