Training with an always be ready approach is about being committed to putting in the consistent work over time to build a balance of endurance, strength and flexibility. It is not, however, designed to be a training approach for racing or race preparation, but more of a mindset to keep you focused and motivated for the long haul. It’s about having the discipline in the small things all the time.Expect the best, plan for the worst, and prepare to be surprised. Click To Tweet
Another benefit of always being ready is it allows you to try some new things in training. You can alter the workouts and exercises a little bit. It allows you to learn new skills and maybe experiment with other sports. It keeps things fresh and exciting which can prevent burnout from running all of the time as following a strict training program can be taxing both physically and mentally. These in-between times and an always be ready attitude can make training fresh and fun.
Remember, you don’t rise to the occasion, but you fall to the lowest level of training. I don’t want a lack of training to be an excuse for failing in life or missing a golden opportunity to enjoy my freedom to run.

It involves overall health and wellness with a firm foundation of fitness consisting of endurance, strength and flexibility. With this, you can also build the mental and emotional strength needed to get through the ups and downs of life. Even if you don’t have an upcoming race or specific event that you’re training for, train in a way to always be ready for what life throws at you.
