Do you want to improve your running? Running faster, more efficient and further? This is not simply done by running faster or running more. Even though volume in training of course matters, it’s not a straight line that goes parallel along more volume that equals to becoming a better runner.
Instead, 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.
So, go out for a run, and self assess. Where do you start your journey to become a better runner?
