Don't Ignore The Offseason - How To Make Big Improvements On Your Next Race

Don’t Ignore The Offseason – How To Make Big Improvements On Your Next Race

How offseason training will set you up for success


In this episode of the RunBuzz podcast, we talk about  the offseason. This is the time of year where we wind down our races and chill a bit as we wait for the next race season to start. Where I live this is the late Fall when the weather gets cooler.  But did you know, the offseason is the best time to do the things you need to do to set up next year’s successful race season? In this episode, we look at ways you can still cut back, relax and have fun, yet make this downtime highly effective so you can improve your running.

Show Notes:

The off season is a great time to relax and start planning your next running goal.  What you do NOW will help you achieve major success next year.

To take advantage of the off season look for ways that improve your fitness, yet give you a break from the day in, day out hard training.  This gives your body and mind a break from running.

In this episode, we look for ways to improve your fitness and running without the hard core running.  All this and more coming up on today’s show.
