Fitness Tip

According to Run Less Run Faster, by Pierce, Murr & Moss (2012), when training for a race, focus on a minimal of three runs for the week. One of the runs should focus on interval training, track repeats, or hills. The benefits of interval training include increased VO2 and running speed. The second key run is a tempo run, approximately 15 to 45 seconds slower than race pace, lasting anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes at tempo pace. The last run should be a long run about 30 seconds slower than goal pace and lasting about 60 to 180 min. The last two runs focus on improving endurance.

Nutritional Tip

GOOD EATS TIP: When you go grocery shopping, stick to the perimeter of the store and purchase whole foods only that are high in fiber and high in protein. Your body will thank you for it in both the short and long run.


Life Coaching Tip

If you are new on the job market and have a job interview scheduled, practice, practice, practice. Working with a Career Coach/Life Coach can greatly improve your interviewing skills. Have answers prepared for the following questions and always stay on topic (Pearce & Heller, 2023)

  • What can you tell me about yourself?
  • Why are you looking for a new job?
  • What are your strengths?
  • What is your greatest weakness?
  • Why have you had so many jobs?
  • What are your short-term and long-term goals?
  • What are your salary expectations?
  • Why do you want to work for us?
  • Why should I hire you?
  • What questions do you have for me?
