Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, regularly shares training tips regarding strengthening our running, fitness and health. Since we're in the middle of the our Month of Miles challenge, Carrie addresses why and how we work on building distance and speed. At Moms on the Run, our training plans are specifically targeted to incorporate difficult days, endurance runs and rest days. We have distance runs to help us build our endurance, we have interval days to help us work on pace. Mixing up various distances and paces will help us to become strong runners.
Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, regularly shares training tips regarding strengthening our running, fitness and health. Today, she discusses safely increasing your distance. June is our Month of Miles challenge, where we are challenging you to log distance every day. This does not mean you have to add more days of running; walking is also important in this challenge. When we speak of increasing distance in our runs, rather than adding another day, increase your distance by adding on to a current run — whether it's an additional five minutes or half a mile. Listen in!
Ready for an adventure? No planes, trains or automobiles allowed on this trip. We want to see how far you can go on foot! You'll be embarking on a 30-day journey, so grab your Garmin and log your miles for our Month of Miles challenge, which takes off June 1.
The goal of Month of Miles is twofold: to help you support your local Moms on the Run franchise plus encourage you to log distance every day. (If your local franchise is not participating, or you are not affiliated with a local franchise, please register with our national team.)
Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, regularly shares training tips to help us strengthen our running, fitness and health. This week’s training tip is about distance — and we have a great way to encourage more miles. We are launching a new challenge for the month of June called Month of Miles. The goal of this challenge is to help you increase your overall movement throughout the four weeks by logging some distance every single day, increasing your overall distance each week by 10 percent. Walking, jogging, intervals, running are all counted toward your goal. Remember, your only competition is YOU!
