Practice: consistency is key to making the hard feel easier or more manageable.
Pacing: understanding what you are currently capable of running allows you to train at a proper increase/decrease in order to improve.
Patience: it will not happen overnight. Stay the course and you'll get there.
Running distance is a huge challenge in itself, so adding speed to that will definitely intensify the process. The biggest challenge is not being able to go the distance (fast or slow) and immediately jumping into speed work. Before trying to become faster, a runner should make sure they can go the distance.
Be patient and trust the process. Speed will come but sometimes you have to slow down in order to speed up. Running fast everyday will cause more harm than good. Training should consist of a variety of effort-level runs.
Rest and Recover: It's one of the most important parts of training. Rest allows the body to repair and bounce back stronger, preventing injuries or getting burned out.
Proper Fueling and Hydration: You cannot outrun bad nutrition or hydration. It will catch up to you when you least expect it and can prevent you from reaching your goals. Understand that this is a constant process, not just something that matters when you're running.
Believe and See It: Keep your mind positive with achievable thoughts, your heart strong knowing how bad you want it, and your vision focused on the goal as you see yourself reaching it.
The importance of fueling before activity: You want to make sure your body has the proper energy it needs to perform at the demands you are about to place upon it. Crashing can come a lot sooner without the regards of mileage/pace. Depending on how much you run, this means evaluating what you put in your body every day.
The importance of fueling during activity: The longer the distance, the more important this becomes. Keeping the body fueled allows it to maintain a more leveled ‚Äúcharge‚Äù instead of a roller coaster of nutrition.
The importance of post-workout fuel recovery: You need to repair the muscles that were torn down during training.
