Operation Move

128. Take some of the structure out of your training, but get the same results

June 11, 2020

If you are like anyone I am coaching, you have been wanting to change up your training in this period without races


Maybe you have a whole heap of extra stressors on you right now, maybe you want to fall in love with running again, maybe you want to step outside the 12 week cycle and do something different, or maybe you just want to take the pressure off. Whatever it is, there's been a much bigger need for less rigidity in training the last few months, and probably for the rest of the year too.


But it probably also makes you feel a bit nervous right? Like if you take your foot off the gas pedal, are you going to go backwards? You don't want to feel like the time is 'wasted' either, so where does that leave you?


In this episode of the podcast, I'm talking about how to take some of the structure out of your sessions, but still get the same physical adaptations, just with a whole lot less of the mental load.


Sounds fun, right? I thought so too! I have a few ideas to keep you moving, switch to more of an effort based focus and create ways where the intensity isn't always coming from the session itself.
