Depending on whether you started running today or last year, today's podcast will clarify the most high-impact training available to you.

Because certain training strategies and workouts are either too easy for some runners - or too difficult.

Like Goldilocks, it's important to plan training that's "just right."

And new runners are at an interesting time in their running careers. There's so much potential and improvements will come quickly as long as runners stay healthy and focused.

So first, don't get injured!

Next, run consistently!

If you're healthy and running consistently, now you can take "the next step" and start focusing on bigger goals.

Jenny Hadfield has been helping runners accomplish their wildest goals for over two decades with a regular column in Runner's World and her promotion of adventure travel around the world.

She's a best-selling author with titles like Running for Mortals and Marathoning for Mortals and has been called "THE coach of this generation."

Even though started running later in life, she's become quite the endurance athlete with race finishes around the world:

  • The Boston Marathon
  • Mark Burnett's Eco-Challenge
  • The Antarctica Marathon
  • The Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim Challenge

With her coaching and running experience, we teamed up to help new runners with 0 - 18 months of running experience get their training started on the right foot.

If you can replicate the principles (not necessarily the exact workouts, mileage, etc.) that lead to personal bests then you can keep improving and setting personal bests.

The alternative is hitting a performance plateau. Stagnating. Running the same times over and over again...

And nobody wants that!

After working with a lot of runners for the better part of a decade, I've come to understand that there are three areas that most contribute to declining performances.

In this episode, we go over all three of those issues, simple fixes, and more strategies to help your speed keep increasing!
