The inside lane

Runners always try to run the shortest distance possible, sticking close to the corners, or the inside lane on a course. But this is probably one time where practicing in the same way you would run in a race might not be the best idea.

If you practice on the outside lanes, or at least just not right next to the edge, you get more running practice in for the same amount of time. This is the sort of stuff that adds up over years of training.

When I used to play water polo, a friend had a thing where he would always do an extra 25% of the distance we had just swum, right after we had swum it.

The principle is the same. Go the extra mile in training, make sure you’re pushing yourself just that little bit more, and be extra serious about training, and you’ll find the results add up.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
