Top Posts over Past 5 years

Heading into the 6th year of writing this blog I thought I would list the most popular posts. Thank you for reading. I’m looking forward to writing    more and have many more topics on my list to do!

Aqua Running is the number one post out pacing other posts 2.5:1 !!!! This  and the subsequent posts on the topic of aqua running have generated more comments, emails and requests for more information such that this is the topic of a current project. I’m writing a book on aqua running. If you have used aqua running to augment your training, rehab from injuries or as part of your off season training drop me a line with your story and it may be included in the book. (Fall – 2012)

Running Stairs is number two most popular post. This is on the project docket too! I’m planning a DVD on how you can integrate stair (stadium) training into your workouts and the best ways to make a difference in your running. (Fall – 2012)

Side stitches and cramping must be a real problem since this post is #3 on the popularity list. There is still no magic pill.

Achilles tendon posts – are #4 on the list. The most popular single one is my 6-Step Process for returning to running after Achilles tendon issues.

Curiously #5 on the list is about the best times of day to run. Maybe it’s because there is no answer?

Upward and onward!


About Dean Hebert

I’m a mental game coach, author and speaker. I work with individual athletes, parents, coaches, and teams on sports performance enhancement. Beyond my academic post-graduate work in sports psychology - the psychology behind athlete performance – I am a certified Mental Games Coaching Professional (MGCP) and certified hypnotherapist. I’ve authored several books and hundreds of articles. “Coach, I didn’t run because…” (2008) is a seriously light-hearted look at making excuses not to workout and how to overcome them. “Focus for Fitness” (2009) and “Screw the Goals Give me the Donut” (2010) are two of my eBooks on mental game approaches for the everyday athlete. I wrote these because I believe that everyone can benefit from the powerful mental techniques that the world’s best athletes use. I have been cited in Runners World, Best Health magazine (CN), SWEAT Magazine, and the Washington Examiner amongst many other publications. I have been a featured mental games coach in Runner’s World and for the internationally acclaimed trail running resource - I also regularly appear on sports and fitness talk shows such as LTKFitness, Runnersroundtable and for more than three years I have co-hosted a weekly video series with Coach Joe English for I specialize in mental toughness training.

Most importantly, my aim is to have people enjoy sports and life to their fullest through peak performances.
