A big mistake that many people make when trying to become a better runner is ONLY focusing on increasing the time or distance they can run. They train for endurance and forget about "speed" which is very important.
Even if you’re training for a 10k, half marathon, or even a marathon, you’ll become a much better runner by including speed in your training.
In fact the only exception where speed isn’t important is for beginner runners. In their case it’s better to build up their fitness first by increasing the time and distance they can run, and then look to improve their speed.
For most runners though speed should be an important part of their training, if they want to become the best runner that they can.
Today I’d like to give you some important tips that will help you get running and keep running.
No matter what you want to achieve with running, one of the most important aspects is running consistently.
If you can be motivated to keep running several times each week, week after week, month after month, then you’re going to achieve a LOT more than the person who runs one week and then can’t be motivated to run the week after.
With this in mind here are 3 motivation tips that will help you run consistently and therefore get better running and weight loss results…

So you want to be fit and healthy, but do you really?
The reason I ask this question is because most people think or say that they want to be fit and healthy but don’t do enough or anything about it.
For example, if you asked your family and friends if they want to be fit and healthy most of them are likely to say "Yes". Now look at what they are doing about it and you may find a completely different story.
So what about you…
Do you really want to be fit and healthy, or is just talk?
When losing weight it can be frustrating if you feel that you’re trying hard and doing enough to do well, but the weight loss results are just not as good as what you expected.
This makes many people think there must something be wrong somewhere else, and one of the main conclusions they come to is that they have a slow metabolism and that’s the reason why they’re struggling to lose weight.
So let’s take a look at whether your metabolism is affecting your weight loss…
Using a treadmill to lose weight should be approached in the same manner as outdoor running to lose weight.
Nearly any run that can be completed outside can also be done on a treadmill and therefore the same running methods and strategies can be used.
One of the main aims when using a treadmill should be to run freely and use your natural running style, just as you would if you were running outside. While this sounds simple it’s something that many people just don’t do.
