Day in, day out

Running five miles a day is great exercise but won’t get noticed by anyone.

If you choose instead to focus on one marathon a year, at the biggest event you can qualify for – that is something special.

This requires levels of preparation and discipline that running the same distance every day does not. It’s completely purposeful and confident in execution. Nothing is left to chance.

If you are consistent, the level of effort needed to do the same job over and over again decreases. That’s why running is a bad way to burn calories; our bodies respond by adapting to the new normal.

These two runners might run the same distance in a year

But one treats it like a day job

and the other treats it like the opportunity of a lifetime, and will be ready for it.
