Would you like to make the most out of the running buddy system? Then you have come to the right place. I love running alone, and for so many reasons. Going solo also gives me the opportunity to get lost in the « suck » of the session and deeply focus my your running form , thoughts, and breathing without any distractions. Yet anyone who has tried it knows that not all running partners are created equal. Keep the following guidelines in mind when choosing your running partner. If you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go far go together. Running is no exception. To explore your running potential, peer up with other runners.
A running buddy is more than just a friend. Pairing up with a faster runner will force you to get out of your comfort zone, which in turn, helps make you a faster runner too. There is safety in s. Chances are you can defend yourself against an assault or a wild animal when you got someone with you. A training buddy can also help if you fall or got injured, God forbid.
Asking your family members, as in your spouse or siblings, to you for a run will bring you closer and provide the chance to bond well. Pounding the pavement can be lonely, so just having that social contact—being able to laugh, support and push—will make your training more enjoyable and efficient. In a perfect world, finding the right running partner should be easy peasy.
After all, running is a super popular sport with millions of people engaging in it regularly. However, finding the most suitable running partner can be quite tricky—especially someone who shares your personal running goals and vision. Before you start asking your friends and gym buddies to you for a run, know yourself and running profile first. It can also get boring to always run with the same person, which might hurt your motivation to run. For all these reasons and so more , have more than one partners for all your running needs as long as they share your visions and are driven as you are to stick to consistent training.
An effective running buddy is not only a runner, but also someone who trains at the same intensity as you. You want neither. If you run fast and your partner dawdles, someone will have to change speeds. Look for a training partner whose running ability and fitness level is in the same stratosphere as your own. Be ready to ask—and answer—directions questions about running abilities, training plans, as well as short- and long-term goals.
Do at least a couple of easy trial runs before you schedule more workouts together. This is a mistake I made so many times, especially when I partner up with someone who loves to push the pace. Do not confuse your running buddy for a competitor. Doing so will sabotage your performance training experience. Pushing a little bit each other is okay, but outright competition with a clear winner or loser is no good. Instead, use the time together to help each other through plateaus and work on achieving gradual goals.
The only person you should be competing with is yourself. Remember to listen to your body and stay within your fitness limitations—running too hard too much is counterproductive and can result in injury or accidents. Visit the Road Runners Club of America and check their lists of clubs. Once you the club, find runners who match your pace. In most places, local running specialty stores, along with clubs, are the backbone of the local running community.
These often organize group runs, post from runners looking for running partners, or do both. Some fitness facilities have running clubs or running partner -ups. Take advantage of them. You can also ask at the front desk to post a note or add to a bulletin board seeking for a partner. This is an awesome free resource that can help match up with other runners, no matter where in the world you currently are. This is, in fact, your ultimate manifesto to becoming a faster and a stronger runner.
