Big goals aren’t achieved overnight. The bigger the goal, the longer the road. What you do each day is an investment to be cashed in down the road. Part of the investment is the training — the miles, the speed work, the lifting, the drills. But the secret to optimizing your effort is to stay balanced even as you work hard. As runners, we can best accomplish this by investing in pre-hab and recovery, recognizing that what we do when we're not running can be just as important and equally as productive as our mileage. Ultimately, sustaining balance increases our durability and resilience, which we need to do big things.
Like most runners, you’re probably more interested in running than yoga. You might have heard that yoga can help you but before you roll out a mat, pause and think about how to use yogato close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be. It’s not about going to a weekly class and crossing it off your training to do list.
