Whether you are a beginner, a regular runner, or even a marathoner, here are 70 running tips to help you get to the next level.
One of the best things about running is that you can do it almost anywhere, any time of the day or night. Nonetheless, most runners, including me, prefer logging in our miles during the day when the sun is out and shining. But that’s not always the case. In fact, daytime savings, busy schedules, family obligations, and so on, can get in the way of a regular running program during the daytime. That’s why we sometimes are forced to make the shift to running in the darkest hours of the day, whether it’s the early morning or late in the evening. And the thing is, if you find yourself hitting the road during these hours, you gonna have to take extra precautions to ensure a safe running experience. Staying safe while running in the dark requires a bit of planning. But fret no more. I got you covered buddy. Today I decided to spill the beans on nighttime running.
How can I measure my training intensity? If you don’t know the answer to that question, then you are in the right place. Workout intensity is vital to measure as it can tell you whether you are training too hard or not pushing it hard enough. Do too much, and you risk injury and/or burnout. Do too little, and your fitness level will plateau, even decline, which is not what you want. One of the commonly used methods is the Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE). Using this rating system is a crucial component of any training program—regardless of your current fitness level and goals. In this post, I will give you an overview of RPE—what is it, why you should use it, and how to efficiently use for maximum effect. So, are you excited? Then here we go.
