Operation Move

Preparing for that big workout or virtual run (plus how to make the most of treadmill running)

July 10, 2020

How do you prepare for that big workout, benchmark run or even a virtual race?

You might not want to do a full taper like you normally would, but you still want to give it the respect it deserves!

This week I'm talking about:

  • Adapting your week
  • Keeping your priorities straight
  • What things won't make a difference
  • How to set yourself up for a good physical and mental level of readiness on the day
  • And keeping focused on what your goal is while not getting locked into the outcome

Listener Question!

A listener wanted to know how to use treadmills vs running outside. So I talked a bit about:

  • What treadmills are really awesome at
  • What they are less awesome at
  • How to adapt sessions to the treadmill
  • And if you do all of your running on the treadmill, how will it translate to outside?
