You’ve heard the saying “Practice Makes Perfect”, but really, what is perfect anyway?! A mantra that I think you’ll love is practice to progress.

Every time you ‘practice’ – whether that is lace up and go out for a run, or do a HIIT (high intensity interval training) session, or 5 minutes of foam rolling – every single time you show up for yourself you are progressing, you are moving the dial 1% further.

You don’t just turn up on race day – ahh, remember what race days were like pre-pandemic?! – and expect to get a PB (personal best). No, you spend 10-18 weeks practicing aka training, and over that training cycle you progress.

It’s a great mantra to repeat to yourself when a workout is mentally or physically tough to keep practicing to progress. You got this!


Is one of your goals this year to tackle a new running distance, or heck, even begin running? It can be hard going alone, I’ve been there with the uncertainty and having no clue if what I was reading online was correct or absolute BS. If you’d like to spend an hour chatting with me about coaching and whether working together to help you achieve your running goal might be right for you, then click on the link below to book yourself a completely free consultation call. I promise it’s not sales-y and you are not locked into anything, it’s 100% just a conversation around your running goals and what I could do to support you.

Alternatively, I have 4 on-demand training packs available: Couch to 5K, Running 10K, Running Your First Half-Marathon, and Running Your First Marathon.
