For anyone fairly new to running, or if you’ve been running for awhile but with no real direction in your training, this post is for you. Let’s see if any of the following resonates. You’ve run multiple races of the same distance, but haven’t seen an improvement. You run basically all of your runs at the same pace. Every run is done at an easy pace. Every run is done at a fast clip that leaves you breathless within minutes. You’re frequently injured. You start running really consistently, it feels hard on every run, so after a week or so you give up and don’t run for a few months.
