Your journey might not be 1000 miles, it might not even be 100 miles, but just like every story, every journey has a beginning. This is your beginning. You will start when you are ready and when you start, you realize how wonderful it feels to accomplish your goals, no matter how big or small it may seem. The journey will be long, but you will be OK. Use today to run or walk as far as you think you can, and no longer. Small victories lead to big accomplishments.

Never forget this truth. YOU ARE IN CONTROL. You know what your limits are, you know how far your body can take you. Do not be discouraged if you are unsure, or if you can not run or walk as far as you would like. Remember that you are in control of how far you want to go. For today, run as far as you know you can run. If it is many miles, go for it. If its to the end of your block, go for it. This is your base. This is where you are now. Know that you will get stronger and faster in time. Be patient.

WHY DO I RUN? Ask yourself why do I run? This is a question that does not have just one answer, but several, and any experience of runner, be it young or old, beginner or Olympian, will ask themselves this question. Think about this question before your run, during your run, and after your run. You will find that there are several answers for yourself. Write them down, and keep them close. You can even write them in your LOG. Look back on this section, and remind yourself why you are running every chance you get. This is motivation. This is you.

STRETCH Stretch before and after each workout. It not only helps with releasing lactic acid build up, which is acid your body produces during a workout, but it also warms up your muscles, and keeps them fresh. Also, it helps the prevention of injuries during a workout. Your body will thank you for it later.

FLUIDS

After each workout, your body will lose fluids, such as water, and sodium. You will need to replenish those fluids so that you can help your body recover after a workout. This will also help energize you after the run.

FOOD = FUEL vegetables whole grains fruits organic

Not only is it important to replenish the fluids after a run, but it is also important to maintain a healthy diet. Good quality food with nutrition and less added “garbage” means better fuel which means better run. Work to this slowly by replacing poor quality foods with higher quality foods. Another option is to start eating less fast food, and look more into foods at the grocery. Look to see what is fresh. Knowing that the prices are higher is not always a bad thing, it can actually help save you from dangers with your heart.

do not be afraid to

take a break Everyone needs a break. Your body does get sore, sometimes even remains sore. Take care of it and rest yourself. If you are continual pain or sore, take a day of and relax. If you are in a middle of a run and feeling tired, stop. Relax and take a few breaths and then start back up or even walk in the beginning. Sometimes the greatest thing to do is to stop. Do not get used to stopping, but when you feel tired, rest for a few seconds, regain your composure and go. If there is a water fountain nearby as well, take a drink of water and replenish a little. A little rest goes a long way in the journey of running, and it will help your body recover.

YOU PASSED A GREAT MILESTONE

WEEK 1

This really is a great accomplishment! You should be proud of yourself. Now that you have completed one week of training, you know you can do one more week. If you are sore, start the week with a day off, but then continue on. On the LOG on the next page, write down your miles from the week, and then write down a goal for the next week, something you know you can accomplish. Once more, this is the time for the little victories, because they will add up, and you will surprise yourself with how far you have gone. Continue with your hard work, and do not stop now. Also, you can add up all your mileage for the year on page 724.

Truly there is no secret for how to be successful in running, just like there is no secret for how to be successful in life. There are several sources that try to persuade you that the secret for success is buying into a scheme, a product, or a single right way to train. The best way to succeed is to try, and when you stumble, try again. If there is a secret, the secret is knowing that you can do anything. Many approaches can give you the results you want and you can do it.

Just as important as it is to run, to eat the right foods, and to drink the right fluids, sleep is a big factor in improving your run. Sleep helps with the recovery of the body after long runs, helps your body metabolize foods, and also gives you the right energy you need. Sleep also increases brain productivity and allows you to stay more alert. The recommended amount of time for sleep is 6-8 hours a night. Naps also help.

do not make every run a training run One of the easiest things to do on a run is to go out too fast, or run too hard. Something that will help is to change up the runs everyday. For example, run hard every other day, and take the days lighter days in between. You will find that this will help make runs more enjoyable and ultimately more effective.

PACING IS KEY FOR A GOOD RUN

GOAL

When you run, it is important to maintain the same speed throughout a run, because you will benefit more from it, and it will help your body after the run. What you do not want to do is go out fast and then struggle in the end. If you want to train or run faster, increase the speed in the middle of the run, and then ease off towards the end. You will feel yourself improving by the next run. Also, if you feel the speed you normally run is too fast, slow down, and remind yourself to start slow. You have more energy than you think, just let it happen.

LOW DISTANCE TRAINING QUALITY RUNS

HOW DID YOU FEEL?

Use these runs are when you do not have a lot of time to train. You use more effort in shorter amounts of time. For example, instead of running for an hour at an easy pace, run for 45 minutes at a higher pace. This is great for people who are busy, or can fit a run into a short break at work. On a side note, Roger Bannister, the first person to break the 4-minute mile, utilized this type of training. You do not have to have this as your goal, but it is a method that works.

LONG DISTANCE TRAINING QUANTITY RUNS

HOW DID YOU FEEL?

Long distance training requires a tough will and desire for endurance. But at the same time anyone can do it. It incorporates long runs throughout your week. Your level of running will dictate what a long run is. Typically, a good way to figure out a good long run is to find a common distance you run, and then double it. For example, if you run 2 miles a day on average, put a few 4 mile days in your week. If you typically run for 20 minutes each day, pick a day in your week to go 40 minutes. You can do this, all it requires is for you to know you can.

HILL TRAINING STRENGTH RUNS

HOW DID YOU FEEL?

Hill training is a tough type of training at first, but once you incorporate more hills into your running, it will become easier. Your legs just need to het used to the various slopes you encounter. The sad truth is that the world is not flat, so you will encounter hills and slopes. Whatever you do, do not avoid them! They will help you out in the long run (No pun intended). hill training can be done in several ways, but the two most popular forms are intervals and running on a hilly path. Try and find an area near you with hills. As crazy as it sounds, you may learn to love hills.

INTERVAL TRAINING BREAK DOWN RUNS

HOW DID YOU FEEL?

Interval training is easy on a track but if you do not have a track, incorporate methods that let you split your run into sections. Splitting a run into pieces at higher pace and can help with endurance for a race. Interval training is also helpful for making runs more enjoyable. You can get a good estimate of your training by interval runs, and can time yourself to see how fast you are running with each interval. This is a great motivational type of training.

HYDRATION it is better to prevent than it is to cure

It is good to drink a lot of water before you run. The better hydrated you are before a run, the more energy you have for your run, and the longer you can run. One of the biggest problems when running during the summer is that you runners do not drink enough fluids before a run. Even in the cold months, it is important to drink a lot of water. Furthermore, it is important to replenish the fluids after a run so that your body will recover.

IT IS ABOUT THE

CORE Core is the essential part of running that encompasses your capacity for breathing. The core of your body is your abdomen, pectorals and arms. A stereotypical runner is thin, with little definition compared to a body builder, but the core is important for breathing and endurance. The stronger your core, the stronger you for your run.

LIFT + TONE

Lifting and toning is more about building muscle and strength than it is about increasing muscle size. As a result of lifting and toning, your body will lose fat and you will be leaner and more defined. It is more about repetition and lower weights than higher weights and fewer repetitions. This will help with your run, and make it easier to breathe.

Five-time USA Outdoor 800m Champion

GOAL

Refueling after the run will help your body recover and replace all the vitamins and minerals that your body lost during the run. You always need to make sure you put the right substances in your body for refueling. Getting fast food will not be as beneficial as a protein shake or fruit after a run. Chocolate milk is a wonderful source of protein that can be a healthier way to satisfy a sweet tooth and recover from it..

It is wonderful to keep pushing yourself when you are feeling great but also remember to stop if you are feeling pain. Do not force yourself if your body is not responding to the training. Rest and run slower. Certain pain might be an issue with stretching as well, so make sure you are stretching properly. Continue to trust in what is working.

HELP MY SON. IT’S UP TO YOU. During the 2009 Columbus Marathon, Paul Benedict ran his third marathon with dreams of qualifying for Boston. His father, Bruce, cheered on the sideline at various mile points throughout the race, making sure he helped his son’s dream come true. Around mile 23, a few members of the team Paul coached joined to help him run to the finish line. Knowing the time, Paul was on pace, but needed to keep pushing. At mile 26, Paul was cutting it close to not qualifying, and Bruce called out to his son’s team, “help my son. It’s up to you.” With that, Paul was driven in with help and determination to chase his goal into becoming a reality.
