3 steps to become a better runner

Do you want to improve your running? Running faster, more efficient and further?

How to become a better runner

  1. Running drills

    Doing technique drills are crucial in making you a more efficient and therefore a faster runner.

  2. Strength training

    Running is a high impact sport and strength training will make your joints more resilient.

  3. Run

    Time on your feet, there is no secret to it. And dong long slow distance is a vital step.

Become a better runner by doing the right thing

Running is about doing the right thing at the right time. As much in life, moderation is key. Since training breaks down your body, you need to train up to a point so that your body can recover for your next session.

This is easier said than done for most. But crucial if you want to keep consistent and injury-free in your training.

That’s why you need to mix it up, doing intervals, long slow runs, strength training, and running drills.

It all adds up to the result: Your running form on race-day.
