The 8 Habits of Award-Winning Runners

Individuals often want to increase their running performance, but don’t understand how. Although there are many techniques that can increase an individual’s performance, people who incorporate healthy habits into their training routine can experience immediate results.

Cross-Training

When individuals run every day, they can burn out. Successful athletes understand that several training techniques improve their running speed. Runners should consider adding swimming, cycling, yoga and weight lifting to their existing training routine.

Consistency

Individuals who win races train consistently. This doesn’t necessarily mean they are running everyday, but it does mean that they have a training routine they consistently finish.

Goal Creation

Athletes who use goals in their training are more successful than those who do not. Running in preparation for a race is a great source of exercise motivation. Furthermore, training for a race can also give structure to an athlete’s workout routine.

Shoe Love

Individuals who run multiple miles every week are always looking for the perfect running shoe. Award-winning athletes often have their favorite brands, but they are always testing new shoes.

Preparation

Individuals who enjoy running know that they should always have their running gear on hand. This habit is especially popular among weekend warriors because they often don’t know when their training will take place.

Hydration

Water and sports drinks help keep athletes healthy and functional. Dehydration on the other hand, can lead to significant falls in athletic performance. Top athletes understand that drinking water before, during and after running in an integral part of training.
