Re: Running Tips
If your aim is really to get your 5k time down your going to need to add some longer distance runs in. I ran competitively in High School with a great coach and we almost never did less than 4 miles. You also need to add some speed training in, it will get your body used to having a higher foot turn over rate which will translate into a faster foot rate in your longer runs and an overall time.
Have you done any form drills? Most people don't realize it but you lose a lot of energy with poor form which you might not notice in a training jog but when you push your self it makes a huge difference.
