Endurance with Direction

Form - Speed - Core Strength & Mindfulness
Every Training Day

“It’s easy to assume that running and other endurance activities always lead to a wide range of health benefits, but our overall health is also influenced by how we lead our lives, both at home and at work. We’re all familiar with how much stress can arise due to competing demands on our time and attention. Best case scenario, the time we spend in training can help counteract these tensions by putting them in perspective and making them manageable.” – Art

Quote of the Month:

“To the observer, when we run, each stride appears to be a duplication of the last but that’s an illusion… under the surface, many aspects of the running action vary constantly between strides.” – John Kiely

A Better Way to Train Runners

While endurance sports may provide an opening to greater health, happiness and confidence, there’s no easy way of running. Sometimes it hurts! But there certainly are many ways to make it easier. Knowledge, training, and coaching can dramatically increase your efficiency and enjoyment while reducing the risk of injury and burnout.

The ideal amount and intensity of training and the time it takes to affect the body positively varies greatly from person to person depending on their health and well being. For many, this means downsizing and restructuring their training. Those who continually work this way keep their running fresh and increase their inner freedom by outdistancing their age and gaining new levels of performance.

You already feel a lot about your body’s strengths and weaknesses. You just need to own these things so you can work on them! Whatever your sports background, injury history or personal records are, The Way Of Running shows how you can overcome your inner barriers, realize your unique gifts and potentials, and discover a new direction for yourself.

Spiritual Balance

In many ways our sport is beautifully simple, all you do is lace up your running shoes and head out the door. Yet we all need form checks, training games and spiritual wake-up calls to outsmart our brains and renew our commitment to always searching for that small bit of range of motion beyond our comfort zone. My job is to support you in your search by humanizing the science and opening your mind to the way of running that suits you best.

In today’s highly commercialized, corporate world, to run for spiritual balance is not so easy. Pop culture distracts us with a barrage of trending advice on the science of peak performance; weekly mileage, speed work, cross-fitting, form correction, minimalist footwear, sports nutrition, trail running, beer running, Spartan running, bodywork, mindfulness methods, and wearable technology to track our every move. Nevertheless, most people are still dogged by injuries and habits that curtail their running and cause strain on both their nervous system and physical structure. 

It takes a leap of faith to tune out the noise, become less concerned with looking good, final outcomes, beating your previous times or another person. It takes serious daring to take my help to search out the best in yourself. But it’s the best way to gain confidence to go your own way, at your own pace, without worrying about how other people train.

If you’d like learn more about how you can make any of my running resources and activities part of a training routine that can directly enhance your health and running performance plus receive invaluable assistance on your path to self-knowledge keep perusing the site!

Exciting Times in the Half-Marathon

Of course, the half-marathon is attractive to marathon runners because of its ease of recovery and to classic road runners because of its role as a springboard to the full marathon. But the half marathon (at 13.1 miles) is perhaps even more relevant to the 10K (at 6.2 miles) than the marathon (at 26.2 miles). Whether you’re a weekend warrior racing on the backroads of Boulder or a world record contender in Denmark later this month, training at 10K pace works wonderfully well for the half-marathon.

Why So Many Marathons are Lost – not Won

 In order to separate and clarify the elements of breakthrough marathon performance, we need to acknowledge some of the most widespread problems. A marathoner's worst nightmare - hitting the wall - might be easily avoidable for runners who adhere to pace and mileage levels that conserve carbohydrates, the body's main source of quick-burn energy and follow a progressive training plan with a wide sweeping impact on V02 max and lactate threshold, key physiological variables that affect endurance running success.
