Who is the 7 Day Running Mindset and Motivation Challenge For?

The 7 Day Challenge is for anyone looking for some additional motivation and accountability in their running journey!

Whether you're a rookie or seasoned distance runner sometimes everyone needs a little structure, guidance and support.

That's what we're here for.

I'll check in with you every day, encourage you to share your progress, and share expert tips, advice, and motivation.

Do I Have To Run Every Day Of The 7 Days?

Not if you can't - the key is to wake up early and move for 30 minutes each day.

Sometimes, external factors prevent us from running every morning. In the course, I give alternative 30 minutes workouts you can do at home (with no equipment) for those days when a run isn't viable.

What If I Can't Run For 30 Minutes (Or 10?)

No problem.

I'll explain how to run / walk for your 30 minutes; this involves alternating between walking and running.

The goal is to wake up early and move for 30 minutes every morning. Check out the 'caveats' video after signing up.

After the course, the material will remain accessible to you - forevermore!

We're super proud of the content of this course. However, if you feel this course isn't up to scratch, and it didn't help you achieve your goals, write to us - we're happy to offer a 7 DAY GUARANTEE- all we ask for an explanation of why the course didn't meet your expectations, and some evidence that you've been in training (Strava posts, photos, etc.).
