How can I become a better?
I love to run a lot and run every single day for track, cross country, and just to run. I want to make my time better for qualifying for events and just to accomplish a huge goal I have currently. What is something I can do every day to get better? #running #sports #fitness-training
As mentioned earlier, practice. Beyond that, there is a need to track performance to see whether the practice is resulting in progress. Sometimes, you may not progressing as quickly as you'd like given a lack of intensity, consistency, or proper fuel (sleep, nutrition, etc.).
There are many training regimes available online. Give one a try (or several), but provide sufficient time to allow progress to be made.
Best of luck!

However, as you become better you'll find out you'll need to pay attention and plan for finer details (food, rest, strength workouts, mesocycles, etc)
It all comes down to where you'll set your bar and the sacrifices you can afford to take
Ultimately that depends on each of us and it also changes with time ! just remember that whatever you chose it never steals your passion for running.
I am currently training for a Marathon i would suggest strength training 2 to 3 times a week. This is the most obvious one, but working with weights can help strengthen your muscles and prevent injuries. Do not run every day.
I hope this helps :)
You can train hard and fast but an injury can put you out of track for extended periods of time.
Investing in a good physiotherapist will relieve some strain in your muscles and help you focus on the training.

I am not trying to impress you, just impress upon you, that this is an addictive lifestyle, which will take one commitment every day with one day of rest. Get out at 4AM, as I have on long runs and 4:30 AM on short runs. (Adjust to your schedule)
A runner does not have an option, if they have to work, but you will see things no one else does, that early in the morning. That one day in 98 when I took a late run in the August sun, stopped me in my tracks. Respect the sun, enjoy the run. Keep the schedule and change up the routes. Tackle Hills and change sides of the road to condition your ankles.
Do runner stretches which targets the proper ligaments, Runners World will point you to the right shoes. Real runners have filthy shoes!

Practice, practice, practice. Depending on what you are wanting to focus on (distance vs sprints), design a training program that caters to your needs. Be diligent in your training and eat a good diet, you will do amazing things!
