Runners: Beware

Last night I stayed in a B&B in Dundalk here so I could check in last night and for the early classes this morning.

Now that things have settled down from the past few weeks I want to make sure to get down to see all you Dundalk folks a bit more often.

It’s not easy getting about but that’s why it’s so important to have a great team and I know the guys have all under control.

One important thing I have realised over the years is that we are only ever as good as the people around us.

No matter how good or bad we think we are, it all comes down to the people around us that will determine our success and happiness throughout life. (To find out The a Key to Happiness click here)

So whenever possible, make sure those people are the right sort of people!


Today’s topic came from an email I received the other day and is a topic that comes up on a regular basis:

Good morning darragh,
Been meaning to write a short email to say how much im enjoying dutchy’s.. loving the classes and as they are only 45 minutes, youre in and out before you know it. Instructors are just fantastic, always something different. I did the 6 week program and then moved onto the card system..i usually make 2 classes a week but the difference the classes have made is just phenomenal to my core..I run too but constantly at physio with hips and weak core but delighted to say haven’t once been since I started classes and I feel so much stronger…in fact it has given me the confidence to attempt my first try a tri this weekend…

Thanks again ,

I have never understood the idea that to improve your running you just constantly run.

No matter what other sport or activity you look into there are different aspects to the training, 1 being the Strength part of it!

Now of course I’m sure there are plenty of runners who know what they are doing and plenty of excellent run coaches out there.

But I’m just going by what I have seen and what a lot of the general public tend to do when looking to take up running (Click here to find out How to Start a Running Program)

and I am trying to advise you on how to improve on it.

Get Strength training in your program 2 to 3 days a week.

Do LESS running and make the running you are doing better.

Look at your diet, which of course is for any Fitness or Health goal.

Have a great wkend and make sure you enjoy it while not letting all slip to the way side altogether.

Think Big And Kick Ass
