This course is for you

"Running never gets easier, but if you don't change your mindset, it never gets more difficult either" Running is both beautiful and dreadful, the highs are high, the lows are low. For some, the most difficult act is that of putting on your shoes, for some its the act of resting, but for everyone who's tried it, running is incredibly unique and personal. We understand that running is not a means-to-an-end but rather an integral part of a healthy and happy life. As people who love to run every day, we want to share the joy of running with you, as your friends, as well as help you to become the best runner you can be, as your coaches. Whatever your running goals may be, this course will help you achieve them and take your running to the next level. There is something here for everyone from the beginner to the seasoned runner. We've noticed a gap between those of you looking to start running for the very first time and those of you looking to break your best time on your next ultra-marathon and we've built the bridge to join us all into one big running community. We've answered your questions, some of which you may not have known to ask yet, and we've covered all facets of a runners' lifestyle from training, racing, cross-training and injuries to nutrition, psychology and even gadgets. This course covers everything from the foundations of good running techniques to the tricks only learned through years of running experience! We are your online running coaches, nutritionists, mentors and comrades. The course offers:

  1. Hours of video lectures and presentations
  2. Real-life training footage
  3. Downloadable training plans\
  4. Pages of recipes and downloadable meal plans

This course is easy to navigate and find the relevant lectures for your own unique goals. It is a necessary accessory to your training and should constantly be referred back to. This is not designed to be watched from start to finish but rather be incorporated into your runs and practical everyday life. That being said, the course could be completed in a little over 6 hours. This course is for anyone looking to improve their running fitness, set new goals and reach them, improve their overall health and look after their bodies and well-being through the sport of running.
