What Can An 'Everyday' Runner Expect?
Every person brings to the run different enthusiasm, endurance, effort and age.
Graeme Holden is aware of all the common mistakes that can raise the risk of injury, burnout or declining performance. The common mistakes are listed below.
Too much too soon.
There is always an initial excitement when starting however you want to still maintain that enthusiasm leading into the second and third months. Starting from scratch may need a run-walk program and a slow build. It might need specific sessions on correcting your style. Graeme Holden will help you improve but make sure that you are well recovered before loading more effort.
The wrong method.
A schedule out of a book won’t necessarily work for you. Every person brings to the run different enthusiasm, endurance, effort and age. Reading all the different training plans from all the books available can lead to confusion. Graeme Holden will create a plan that works for you and will fit your lifestyle.
Goals that are outside your reach.
Goals are a great motivational tool to help keep you focused but you need to be realistic. In most cases you will be able to reach any race distance within your finishing time goal but you must have patience and give yourself the right amount of time to prepare. Graeme Holden will have a realistic look at your goals and then help you set targets between to help keep you on track.
