Having a running watch is one thing–but do you really know how to use it?
NCAA runner turned high school coach Hillary Kigar has an answer for all things training!
“Quality” and “consistency” are the key words when it comes to improving race times, no matter how fast you are trying to run.
Quality means you are getting the most out of each minute, challenging yourself to go a little faster (or a little farther) from week to week.
Consistency means that you choose a routine and stick to it. Maintain your workout schedule, and do your best not to skip days.
As a runner, it is important to fuel your body with the proper foods. Don’t do it alone! Consider hiring a nutritionist who can help you set up a weight-loss plan that includes food choices with enough protein and carbs to help maintain your energy while you continue to train.
