What does it mean to “Go The Extra Mile?”

go the extra mile

To go beyond what is necessary or expected in order to please someone, achieve something, or get something
done correctly.
Athletes in search of a personal goal must go the extra mile to see their dream become a reality. At the 2017 New York City Marathon the running world watched as Shalane Flanagan crossed the NYC Marathon finish line as the first woman. She was the first U.S. woman to cross this finish line in 40 years and for her she was seeing all of her hard work, commitment, dreams and going the extra mile coming together in a perfect race. She is a role model for women everywhere and her words, “F*CK YES” and the tears and fist pump as she approached the finish line are what so many of us will use to find inspiration as we chase our goals and dreams.

Tips for Going the Extra Mile in Your Training 

  • Add in an extra rep, push up or lap around the track.
  • Ask your coach to add in some extra workouts to challenge you without overloading you.
  • Get to bed early so that you will be well rested and recovered.
  • Eat well. Paying attention to how you are fueling yourself during training and racing can add to your physical performance.
  • Find a training partner who challenges you to push harder and go faster.
  • Train alone. This can be harder than training with a coach or another runner because this training will make your mind stronger come race day.
  • Balance out your running with cross training and strength training. Making time for other disciplines can make your stronger and help to keep you injury free.
  • Add in an extra workout.

  1. For me, the extra mile is sometimes, just literally, an extra mile. And I do always try to run it faster and harder, when I’m out there.

  2. I’m just starting to run again after having a baby and moving across the country. Every day feels like lots of extra miles. I am grateful for them all!
