In this video I share how I’ve improved my running performance to get better times over the distance from 5 kilometers to Marathon (42.2km).
Apply these 3 Tips to your weekly training schedule to see faster results.
Tip 1: Apply a Weekly Long Run (60min of slow running through to 120 – 140min) – This will help improve your cardiovascular system as well as muscle strength. Integrate hills into long runs to exercise your fast twitch muscle fibers.
Tip 2: Tempo Workout – This type of run should range from 20min – 40min of comfortable hard running. Shouldn’t be too puffed at end. It’s best to maintain same kilometer splits over the course of distance.
Tip 3: 1 Speed Workout – By applying 1 session of speed training to your weekly running drills you will improve your speed for most distance races. 6 x 600m is a common workout for athletes looking to improve their speed. Recover for 2min in between and be jogging to clear lactic acid out of your body.
