Reach YOUR Run Potential

If you look at enough race results, you will see what others can do your age. Now what is holding you back from getting there? Pace is greatly impacted by body fat and excess muscle. You have to decide what you are willing to drop for helping your pace. Next is probably your run training. Are you running enough, are you running fast enough and are you running in the right zones. Coaches can help you figure this out. Lastly, are you functionally fit. Is stability, flexibility and/or strength holding you back. These may limit your ability but more critically if you are deficient in any, your risk of injury goes up. Then no matter what your weight is or how well you train, you may break down and not be able to run. Please make sure you look at the whole picture.
