Are you struggling with staying consistent with your running routine?

Do you promise yourself you’ll run later, but never do?  Is negative self-talk stopping you from reaching your racing goals?     You can transform your mindset – simply by recognizing these negative thought patterns – and replacing them with more logical ones.

The secret isn’t to force positive thinking.  Rather, treat each run as an inner journey.  When you do, you’ll begin to notice when disruptive mumbo jumbo creeps in.

With practice, these self-limiting beliefs will begin to lose their power.

So what the next step?  Do you have to log thousands of miles?  Become a hermit and isolate yourself from friends and family?  Denounce worldly possession for a life as a marathon monk?

Barefoot Alex’s Daily Intuitive Running Tips

What if each morning when you woke up.  You were greeted with a handcrafted email that presented outside the box methods for developing running intuition.  The non-fluffy kind.  Just actionable content that focuses on honing mental skills, how to improve form and pace, results from my personal “mini endurance experiments” vault, biohacks, optimal food choices, etc.

Would it be worth your time and energy to digest the information if it generated excitement to train?

As a linguist, I especially appreciate the writing style – relaxed and clear. This is written so even non-runners would get a high off it.  Inspiring and informative stuff!

Hey Coach Barefoot Alex,I feel like you have coached me,as reading your emails have made me a way better runner!!
