    Chris Bennett | Finding Our Best Possible Run

    With most gyms still closed and team sports on hold, running is more vital than ever—but it’s also more constrained. Good thing we have a teacher like Chris Bennett to help us find our stride. As the head coach of Nike Run Club, he’s been telling us for years that our best runs aren’t measured by distance or time but by how they make us feel. On this episode of Trained, he talks about how that shift in mindset can improve our long-term performance, how we can practice good running etiquette while social distancing, and how we can still get a runner’s high even if we can can’t run.

Truely helpful!

This is such a useful podcast for normal people like me. The most recent Trained inna time of COVID-19 with Andi Puddicombe from Headspace has assisted my 7-year old with her coping mechanism. I have tried and will continue to do so, but when I heard Andi’s voice, I just knew she would listen and be more open to him guiding a mindful exercise. Thank you.
