Happy but exhausted

Hi I’m Mikula, the founder of the running mate!

Have you ever asked yourself one of these questions:

  • Why am I getting injured in my running training all the time?
  • How can I prevent those injuries
  • How can I motivate myself to go running regularly?
  • How much time do I need for running to achieve my goals?
  • How can I lose weight with running?
  • Can I run until I’m old?
  • How should I train in order to improve?
  • How can I squeeze my training into a tight schedule?

If yes, then you found the perfect resource to get to some or all of these questions answered! I run for over a decade and started mainly for health reasons. Very soon I set myself running goals from running a half-marathon to running ultra trail races. I never quite a race nor did I ever get injured in my running since I started about ten years ago.

On this website my mission is to help you achieve the same or even more. I write specific content to address your pains and fears and help you achieve your running dreams, whatever they may be.

Predefined training plans are good but far from perfect and they often lead to injury rather than success. Use this health-first, goal based system instead.
