Have you ever wondered why you work really hard in your running, but you just don’t quite improve?
Maybe you think that you are missing something, or maybe you start thinking that you are just slow. Chances are there are a whole bunch of things that aren’t quite happening, and that’s the reason why you start to feel stuck.
