Let’s change it up. I got to thinking that beginner runners really need to listen to these podcasts in order, at least the first few, but, unfortunately, often people only listen to the most recent. For that reason, I decided to combine the most critical and basic information from the first 35 episodes into what I’m calling my 10-Day Become a Runner Class. Listen to one a day or binge listen to all ten. Either way, you’ll get ten concise episodes.
This beginner running class is for people who fit any of these profiles:
- not a runner but want to be one
- unfit or only somewhat fit
- or older
- or overweight
My coaching is different from the usual beginner runner program; it’s much more gradual, which I think is the kind of program that’s in much more demand, because after working with beginner runners for a dozen years, I know that success, for virtually every one, hinges on progressing gradually, at an appropriate pace for that person. Too many people go at it with too much intensity and try to do too much too soon. The result is usually injury, discouragement, and ultimately, failure.
In my class, the emphasis is entirely on success, on you becoming a lifelong runner. I believe you shouldn’t be in a hurry to build endurance, to be able to run a mile, non-stop. The emphasis should be on building fitness at a healthy, controlled rate, a rate that keeps you healthy, confident, and happy
We’re after optimal health. If that’s your goal, you’re in the right place.
This 10-day series is for people at the very beginning of their running career, people just building up to their first running mile. I’m super excited to have the role of motivator to help you take your first running steps, and hopefully, to assure that you have the confidence to make the commitment to become a runner in 2017.
In this first class, I explain how to do it the right way, the most effective way to become a runner.
I mention these items in the podcast:
Check out The Human Race, a Documentary here. This documentary will leave you feeling empowered, feeling like you can most certainly become a runner. The film features masters runners over 50, and the message is that any age is the right age to run, that you will be healthier, and you can extend middle age and good health for the rest of your life.Stitcher Radio
