Consistency Running

gilly No Comments

Consistency.

Why is it so bloody hard to master?

Mostly because the thing we are trying to master is new and maybe a wee bit out of our comfort zone.

Say, for example, you are trying to run every single week in the month of February.

So…

You go out and run on Tuesday, then Wednesday and then again on Thursday.

Friday you are tired so you give yourself a day off.

Then on the weekend, you get to be lazy because you feel now you’ve built a good running consistency…

So now you’ve got lots of energy to go full force on Monday and try to keep up the consistency in running.

This is good!

Consistency Running

*(Two things can happen in your mind here.) ~

– You’re happy you did your 3 days last week and want to keep the momentum and deciConsistency Runningde to plan days with breaks between runs. (This is a good thing!)
–  Or, you’re a bit angry with yourself because you thought in your mind 3 days were too easy, so you push yourself to run more! (Not good, your ego is already setting you up for a failure… Don’t listen.)


If you experienced the second thought, your running might look somewhat like this.


The next week you run every day except for Sunday.
(Now you are truly tired and overworked, it won’t look pretty from here.) While You are still in the over-the-moon stage and an absolute trooper at that. You decide to run full force and do a lot of mileage one day!

Consistency Running  ~ Uh oh…

After … The next week you get lazy.
But, You’re still really proud of yourself! ( You should be, that’s a big feat!)

You get lazy, really lazy because you ran soo much.
You feel stiff and tired and still, believe you need time off. ( And you do!)
It eventually turns into too many days off.
A week goes by and you don’t run.

Two weeks go by and you have to start all over again because you lost your momentum.


A very familiar story…


Consistency Running ~Do you get what I’m saying? 

Look how hard it is to keep the consistency with these three mistakes …

  1. The first mistake is scrunching all the days together in your first week and not giving yourself a break between each day. When you give yourself a break, the consistency for running doesn’t feel so overwhelming.
  2. The second mistake is running more than 3 days a week. If you are used to running these days consistently then it’s ok to add more. But… if you are not, it’s going to be a big change for you committing to this. Again it will feel too overwhelming.
  3. The third mistake is taking too many days off from the last run. This is a biggy in failing to build consistency.
If you didn’t watch this video last week, watch today.
and give me a thumbs up and/or comment.
Thank you!
The only way to see the results by next Monday.
  • Give yourself 1 to 3 break days in between runs.
  • Run Only 3 days.
  • Do not leave more than 3 days off between runs.
Remember, teaching yourself how to build consistency will have setbacks. This is normal.

Awesome Results for Great Posture Running!

It’s important to have good posture running or walking,

because your body loves good posture!

Over the years your posture gets worn down from living with stress, not getting enough quality sleep and not consciously sitting or walking with good posture.

 Learn to walk first with awesome posture,

work it into running after.

  1. Stand with your feet shoulder length apart and lean.
  2. Lean slightly, but enough so that your heels are staying put.
  3. As soon as you are tempted to fall – take a step. You are learning how to walk again!

It may sound strange when I give you these instructions…

Visions of you literally tipping over and losing your balance.

It isn’t that way at all.

The lean is very slight, it is the gears to set your speed.

It will feel weird at first, nevertheless your body won’t take long to get used to this.

After all, this is a walking posture you were absolutely born with!

Danny Dreyer gives an awesome example of great posture walking – by taking us back to the past…

You may remember a lifeguard shout, “Walk!” when you ran by the pool.

Or a teacher at school yell, “No running in the halls!”

Your reaction to this:

You slowed down and walked really quick steps, but still tried to maintain a running Speed.

Slightly leaning forward at the ankles, quick short steps and eyes looking in front of you. Of course you would never look back because you didn’t want to be known as trouble.

 Learn good running posture today!

Why?

To get awesome results for great running tomorrow!

You taking stress off your knees, hips and lower back.

If you kept on running with the wrong posture, the strain or injuries would be never ending!
