Episode 134: Improving is Really Hard!

Magness & Marcus on Coaching show

Summary: <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> In our early days or running, improvement comes easy! A little bit of training and our performance improves. We get fooled into thinking work and improvement are directly correlated. This is great for getting us to put in the work, but what happens when improvement slows down, when it becomes a jagged line?

Or do we try something different.This weeks podcast is all about figuring out how to improve when the going gets tough.<br> <br> <br> <br> Steve &amp; Jon<br> <br> <br> <br> Resources Mentioned:<br> <br> <br> <br> * <a href="http://www.garycohenrunning.com/Interviews/Snell.aspx" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Interview with Peter Snell</a><br> <br> <br> <br> Visit our Sponsor<br> <br> <br> <br> We’ve just launched a new course for the Scholar Program: Renato Canova’s training.
