Change your training to change your results

Thu, Jun 25, 2020

This article is all about varying the stress we apply to our body. If I run or work out at the same intensity, for the same amount of time, all the time, do you think I will continue to improve? No. Your body gets used to the training or stress you apply to the body.

How does this apply to your training? Well most people, like my friends in Newcastle, tend to start by doing the same training again and again. They run the same distance at the same pace every time they train. They wonder why after a few races they keep getting the same results.
