Jeff Galloway Blogger Program - Training and Motivation Tips

I'm excited to share with you the first in hopefully a long line of posts. Recently, I noticed a Facebook post about a new program from Jeff Galloway. And when I say noticed, I was tagged by my running pal Oswald in the comments because he knew it would fit me perfectly. Jeff Galloway was starting a blogger program, where he will share tips, motivation, discounts and other great information with a select group of bloggers to then pass on to you, the readers. So I sent my email immediately expressing my interest. Jeff Galloway and his Run Walk Run Method is what got me started running, and a huge part of why I love it. I was thrilled to receive an email welcoming me into the program and my first set of tips to share with you. And so without further gilding the lily and with no more ado, I give you tips directly from the man himself, Jeff Galloway.

Training and Motivation Tips

By Olympian Jeff Galloway

When paced correctly, running delivers the best attitude boost you can get. Sustain this by pacing yourself gently during the first mile or three.

A well-paced run enhances vitality for the rest of the day.  Start each run at least 30 seconds a mile slower than you will run at the end.

If you have a Run Walk Run strategy that is right for you on that day, it's possible to feel good after every run-even the marathon.

Running is the best stress reliever I've found. Research shows that running tends to activate the conscious brain which over-rides the emotional subconscious brain and manages the negative and anxiety hormones during and after the run.

Research shows that as runners get faster, their stride length shortens.  A quicker cadence is the mechanical key to faster running.

The finishing of a run that is longer than you've run in the last 3 weeks can bestow a sense of achievement that is unique and empowering-due to positive brain circuits that are turned on.

You can't run a long run too slowly or take too many walk breaks.  You'll get the same endurance based upon the distance covered.

What motivates you?


  1. I love the Galloway method! I was kind of doing it before I ever learned that it was the Galloway method but now that I know it's actually a "thing", I feel better about my long runs! -M

    1. Starting out with his method I think is largely why I loved running. Helped me feel good from the beginning and built my confidence really early that I could in fact do it. I will ever be grateful to him for that.

  2. Love Jeff Galloway! The run/walk method is the only way I'm able to run at all. And he's such a great motivator!

    1. Yeah. He's pretty great. I'm currently reading his mental training for runners book which is really good.
