How to prepare/train for a race

The main question I get asked all the time is what is it I do to train for my Races. Depending on what type of Race you are doing; weather it is an Obstacle Course Race, Half Marathon, or a 5K, the key to remember is how you prepare your training plan doesn't change no matter what the distance is. If it is your first Race that is a different story, and something I will cover in my next Blog Post, but over the years I have learned that the key to any race is to prepare for the course more than the distance. For example, when I was preparing for The OCR World Championships in Ohio I had to focus my training on climbing more than speed as the course was very technical. Knowing what type of terrain you will be running is key to adjust your training plan to fit the Race at hand. Below are some tips and tricks on just how to prepare leading into race week.

How To Stay in the Zone

I often get asked a lot of questions after running a marathon. Questions such as Did you win? How long was the race? Did you finish in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place? What happens when you have to use the bathroom? But one question that has me thinking every time is, what do you think about, so you can keep on running and not call it quits in the middle of the race. How do you stay focused and in the zone? For every marathon I have a different experience and yes I often hit the wall, where I want to just call it quits. But somehow I never do or haven't. I guess I have it ingrained in me that what I start I must finish, unless I'm injured or seriously hurt, but as long as my legs are working, I will keep on moving.

Ambassador Inspiration & Motivation - Arie Rich

The dictionary defines motivation as "the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way. The general desire or willingness of someone to do something." What is my motivation? I find it difficult to answer this question. In trying to define my motivation I find myself looking back to my past, my childhood, my present and my future. I believe my motivation is found in many different things and places. Sounds weird I know, but let me explain.

Hello runners and fellow exercise enthusiast. I would like to share briefly on an opportunity that recently opened itself up to me.

Initially I saw this as an opportunity to meet other amputees and also to gain knowledge about how to take steps to achieving more as an amputee athlete. Little did I know, that when I flew to Nashville for a week that my outlook on life as well as my future goals would change.

3 Fitness Myths That Need To Be Corrected

Myth ONE: “In order to be successful in working out you can only work each muscle group one day a week.” This does hold some truth depending on what your overall fitness goals are. When I lift I don’t lift solely for aesthetics but also to maximize my athletic performance. I'm a firm believer that when properly progressed to and executed the over training method is very beneficial. Over training has helped me perform at a high level consistently for long periods of time with very little recovery time. For example, if you’re a soccer player you run everyday during practice not just one day a week. In doing so you’re able to perform game after game without getting tired. When I was kickboxing I trained at a high level everyday to ensure that when it was time to fight in a tournament I didn’t need to rest much between fight in order to recover.
