Play • 1 hr 8 min

BUILD THAT BASE!!! Coach Nick Klastava (@nklastava) joins the podcast to talk all things "base-building" (and why it's SO important for you as a runner!)

  • What is "Base-building"?
  • Base-building vs. Volume-building
  • Base-building vs. Race-specific training
  • Workouts in a base-building phase
  • Easy running rules: how & why?
  • "Maintenance" & when to do maintenance in your schedule
  • What is an "Off-season"?
  • How to periodize your training to include base-building

Nick Klastava has been a runner on and off for almost 25 years, running in High School and College back in the early 2000's and then taking some time off and finding the sport again in a different more joyful, less pressure-filled way in 2009. Nick's journey has gone from a runner filled with mental blocks that plague all runners to becoming a runner filled with joy and belief in himself and not some numbers. He now helps runners as a USATF/RRCA certified coach at Lift Run Perform to help runners learn to truly believe in themselves, adapt their training to their hectic lives, and become the best runner possible while enjoying the process that is life along the way.
