    181: The Need for Speed

    Remember when you were a kid and you used to just sprint from place to place without worrying that you would get tired?  Remember the thrill of flying down a hill or running across a beach?  Can you think back to the excitement of running so fast that you were not sure if your feet would keep up or if you would fall over?  We live in a world of practicality and safety.  Running slowly has enormous benefits, but what about the bliss of seeing what else is possible?
     
    Highlights of the Episode What is effort level training?
    Why should I incorporate faster speeds and paces into my training?
    How often should I run faster?
    What are the physical and mental benefits of running faster?
    How can I safely incorporate speed training into my routine? 
    What do I need to be aware of so I don’t injure myself?

    179: Think Your Way to a Better Run

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could simply decide to have a better run or a better race or even a better life and it would just happen?  Controlling our perspective on what is happening around us really does affect how our life plays out.  Just as two people can see the same situation completely different from each other, your attitude towards an event actually changes the situation itself.
     
    Highlights of the Episode    
    Feelings are a guide for our life
    Become an observer 
    Is running physical or mental?
    Be an experimenter
    Understanding our feelings
    How running helps us deal with our emotions

    178: Set Better Goals

    Goal setting is super popular at this time of the year.  It can come with some apprehension causing us to create smaller goals than we should.  On the other hand, it can come with a bold ambition that may stretch beyond our limits.  In this episode we discuss goals.  Big ones, little ones, previous ones, and the benefits and negatives that come with each.
     
    Highlights of the Episode  
    Goals are not simply designed to be created and never looked at again
    Previous goals provide a chance to look back and assess
    Taking a step towards your bigger goal
    Looking back to 2020 to set the right goals moving forward
    Realistic running goals for 2021

    176: What 2020 Has Taught Us About Running

    As we approach the end of 2020, many people are bidding good riddance to a year like no other.  Prior to goal setting for 2021, which is important to set up a great year, we need to take some time to reflect on what happened this past year.  Before we brush off the year and dismiss the struggles and challenges, we need to remember that the struggles are usually where we learn the biggest lessons.  So what lessons can we be grateful for as we say thank you to 2020.

    Making the most of the gratitude feeling that can shape your day and life
    Reframing your thoughts when it’s difficult to find gratitude
    Ways to appreciate the present and feel happier
    How we can fully appreciate the joy of gratitude

Happy Trails

I listen & re-listen to your podcasts. It’s like: I don’t get it all the first time around (they’re so info packed.) The more time I listen, I develop a better base for getting more info the 2nd & 3rd time around.
Happy trails!

I love this podcast about running!

Kevin and Angie give practical advice for runners who have full lives outside of running! I have learned so much from listening to them and my running times and distances have improved. Every runner should have this podcast on their playlist!
