Benefit From The Nine Key Strategies For Run Success

You benefit from years of research and experience when you implement the 9 essential running success strategies.

Too often runners put on their shoes without a proven plan, only to become injured and frustrated. Before too long they give up and stop running. They join the "I used to run".

Running success is about more than just running. You need to a sustainable approach to enjoy long term success.

By combining the fitness, running, business, strategy, relationship, research and authoring expertise and knowledge of Sue and Dr Andrew O'Brien the nine characteristics of sustainable running provide the blueprint for successful running.

Here is a quick overview of the 9 essential run strategies that guide the Partnerunning Community:

  • Learn and Improve

    Improving by making sense of the experience. Running can teach us about life at the same time as we improve our run performance.

  • Event Success

    Making it happen on the day. The focus of your hard work requires planning, race strategy, mental toughness and implementation.

  • Recover

    Allowing time to heal and re-energise. Sustained running is our focus and managing energy and recovery is vital.

  • Travel

    Moving beyond your comfort zone. Running away from home is awesome. It facilitates your development and growth.

  • Pre-event preparation

    Being ready by taking care of business. Training alone is not enough and sound race preparation is key to success.

  • Injury-free

    Managing your body to keep moving forward. The biggest pitfall for runners is injury and managing your body is vital.

  • Desired future
