Default 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.

Good advice mate. I've started making running more diverse thanks to the advice ive got from here.

Previous 2 days I did 6x100 m runs. 2x200 m runs. Other day was an easy 3 mile that I didnt time because I wanted to practice technique and breathing. With your point on form, thats actually something I pay attention too while running. Not only to make things easier/more functional but also because theres a lot of fashion runners around here

I'm not sure on going much further than 3 miles because but will keep that in mind.

Its of interest to me this thread, theres been some interesting things spoken. Ill take it a step further, over the last 10 years been developing something which gives you Non Impact Running, icorperating something I call Noerodynamic stretching in conjunction with the running. It brings about correct form through Muscle memory, Feel. The results have been remarkable, peoples PB dropping noticeably, good triathletes knocking 10 minutes of there PB without running 6 months prior to Racing. Sheffield University are doing a 3 year study of the system. I think I kmow why, the boffins have to rubber stamp it interesing

The 200m and 100m are good but I would recommend 400m and 800m workouts. They really take some motivation because they are probably the most horrible things ever invented especially those 800s.

Hate to flog a dead horse here but had an update on the progress.

Officially made my time as of 10 minutes ago. Absolutely stoked about this. Like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.

Ofcourse this time isnt impressive for a well tuned athlete but tonight made 19.24 on the 3 mile. Scary thing is it felt challanging but not exhausting.... by that I mean I could of ran even a bit harder. And I beat my last recorded time by a good minute and half.

I'm not sure whats up with that but im putting it down to Sprint sessions (makes a bit differance) the right combo of fluids and food in stomach aswell as the practise on breathing technique and running technique on the course and ideal weather conditions.

Also feeling like it's good ability to run, more a lack of experience that causes some bad results from time to time. Anyway, all I can say is sometimes it feels great to break little goals like these.
