Runner, exercise scientist and coach, Greg McMillan of McMillan Running knows what it takes to reach the top of one’s game! As official coaching of the 2010 GORE-TEX TransRockies Run, Greg and his team have been kind enough to share valuable training tips to help GTTRR participants get the most out of their experience. Every Monday from now until race time Greg willspoil us with some words of wisdom in the ‘McMillan tip of the Week’!
For the first instalment of the ‘McMillan Tip of the Week’ see below!
“Consistency in your training is key. Being a weekend warrior is not going to cut it for this kind of event. Gaps in your training increase your risk of injury and establish a poor endurance base. Weekly long runs and a consistent week-in and week-out mileage base will prepare your mind and body for the rigors of a six-day stage race.”
