101 Challenges for Runners - The motivation machine that catapults your performance and puts your key muscles into turbo gear for running
Publisher: Columb Kiadó
What if we could accelerate your progress in running?
Challenges make life exciting. Some of them we would avoid; break-ups, mental health problems, work problems, exam situations, but many people find them inspiring and realise they have actually improved by completing the challenge. In contrast, now you can do it by thinking ahead. To seize an opportunity that could define your approach to running for years to come, colour your training and make you not only more productive but also more balanced. Physically and mentally. Put your hand on your heart... Sometimes it can be torture to get yourself to run. And it's okay to switch off during your run or to watch the split times, but you may still lose motivation after months/years, even if you set new goals. You need milestones. Sub-tasks. It's like a short story for a novelist. A novel can take at least six months, including editing and revising, and a good year without any tangible results, but a short story can be completed in hours, giving the author impetus, motivation and reassurance. This book is a short story for runners. Your own private motivational machine that will kick-start your competitive spirit, turn you into a winning type of person and turbo charge your overall physical fitness in terms of the muscles and circulation that are key to running. That's what I help you do. I started running in 1991 at the Postal Athletic Association. I have competed mid to long distance with medal finishes at national level. It was there that I first met a Hungarian champion coach as a training partner, who has since helped athletes to qualify for national selection, and who was awarded a certificate of commendation by the Hungarian Athletics Federation in 2015 in recognition of his outstanding work in athletics. In some chapters of the book, I have drawn not only on my own experience as an elite athlete, but also on his latest expertise in creating the challenges.
