MFR 139: The Mental Side of Running

10/9/2019
More
Even before you were a runner, you had probably heard the oft repeated line, “Running is 90% mental.” I don’t think I’ve ever heard any long-time runner argue against this, because you realize pretty quickly that this is true. iF your mind wills it, if your heart is in it, if you have the necessary […] The post MFR 139: The Mental Side of Running appeared first on Mojo for Running.

How is your running base coming along? This is one of the most critical considerations for any runner’s success, but in my experience, the great majority of recreational runners ignore it.

MFR 137: Boston

6/13/2019
More
Boston. That word inspires emotion in every runner, as it does with me. I’ve always been a word person, which is just part of the reason I was an English teacher for 15 years. I think about words. Those six letters move me. They have for years but much more, now. Six letters that, to […] The post MFR 137: Boston appeared first on Mojo for Running.

MFR 135: How to Crush Your Goal Race With Microcycles

4/27/2019
More
I know very few runners not focused on getting better, improving their running performance, scoring PR’s, but sometimes there are ways to improve, even quite basic ways, that never become common knowledge to non-elite runners, certainly not common knowledge to people who aren’t working with a coach. One of the most basic concepts is periodization, […] The post MFR 135: How to Crush Your Goal Race With Microcycles appeared first on Mojo for Running.

MFR 134: How to Optimize Performance with Periodization

4/3/2019
More
Most runners run because they know it keeps them fit and because it’s a great hobby. For some, it’s mainly the camaraderie. Others are attracted by the endorphin rush, but virtually all runners also want to get faster. Is that you? Even if you only do the occasional race, you may want to keep improving, […] The post MFR 134: How to Optimize Performance with Periodization appeared first on Mojo for Running.

The topic of Episode #132 was dreadful runs. This is a followup that, I hope, will always help you put those runs in perspective. But more than that, it shows you what can happen later in your running career. No matter where you are, now, in your running journey. You can still set lofty running […] The post MFR 133: From Brutal to Boston appeared first on Mojo for Running.

MFR 132: Explaining Dreadful Runs

2/17/2019
More
If you have never had a bad run, then you haven’t been running long. Truth. Every runner of every level has bad runs now and then. Now if you have them often, that is, of course, a problem, but as a rule, if you haven’t had a lousy run in a while, I’d say you […] The post MFR 132: Explaining Dreadful Runs appeared first on Mojo for Running.

MFR 131: Gifts for Runners

12/18/2018
More
One of the things I appreciate most about running is that it’s such a simple sport. You can do it anywhere, and the only equipment you need is a pair of shoes. That said, everybody loves running gear and most of the runners I know love gadgets as well. So, since it’s the holiday season, […] The post MFR 131: Gifts for Runners appeared first on Mojo for Running.

MFR 129: Electrolytes Part 2

Not all electrolyte replacement products are the same, not even close. Jen has been running a while, but she hasn’t ever trained for marathons. Now, she’s often running for two hours, and she’s finding that she really starts to feel fatigued. She assumes it’s that she’s not eating correctly or that her training hasn’t been […] The post MFR 129: Electrolytes Part 2 appeared first on Mojo for Running.

Have you ever had a dreadful race but were unable to put your finger on the cause? Of course, there could be many causes, but one of the first places to look is at your electrolyte replacement regimen. What? You don’t have an electrolyte plan? Well, that’s okay if you’re not running farther than 90 […] The post MFR 128: Electrolytes appeared first on Mojo for Running.

At any given time, a percentage of runners will be suffering from a not so uncommon running malady, loss of their running mojo, the state of being without motivation, of feeling more like sitting than running. This is serious but not uncommon. I’ll tell you this: As a longtime coach, I’ve seen this many times. […] The post MFR 125: When You Lose Your Mojo appeared first on Mojo for Running.

Unless you live in a very remote area, you likely can choose from several half marathon options every month because with every passing year, we see more halves, and that’s not surprising because they are, I think the ideal race distance.

It’s the little things that often have the greatest impact, and so it is with the concept of focusing on the fact that when running, you are always, 100 percent of the time, putting the full weight of your body on just one foot or the other.
