3 Ways To Run Faster

3 Ways To Run Faster

Running is a process and you need to take your time to be able to adjust to it. In scientific terms of process, “a process is performing a series of mechanical or chemical operations on something in order to change or preserve it” or a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a certain or a particular end or result” or “a process is a series of progressive and interdependent steps by which an end is attained or achieved”. Although we have a series of explanations according to the context and the type of work. After all the main agenda is to progress or change from something to a different thing that is there must be a transition in whatever you are doing. Most of the athletes have been training for a very long time but still, they don’t see any improvement.

The same thing applies in running, every athlete trains every day with the intention or the aim is to have a form and win races. But have you asked yourself why you don’t see any changes in your running?

There are a lot of things the athlete should consider. Most of the coaches have a limit to train some athletes and when they reach some level they became stagnant and can’t move forward and start to deteriorate in form.

Today we’re going to look at the 3 major ways to run faster for all athletes for beginners, amateurs, and professionals.

  • Easy Long Run
  • Tempo Run
  • Intervals

Easy Long Run: I call it the basis of running. There are different kinds of long runs but the easy long run is one of the best ways for an athlete to start to run faster. This type of run is very slow and you can communicate with your teammates without any difficulties. The time interval will depend on the kind of event or discipline of your choice. A 100m and 200m runners can do at least 20 minutes. A 400m and 800m runners can also do 30 minutes and 1500m and 3000m runners can do not less than 60 minutes. For 5000m, 10,000m, half marathon, marathon, and ultra-marathon runners the easy long runs must be a habit and always included in your weekly training plans. The easy long runs help you to increase your endurance and running form as an athlete.

Tempo Run: I always advise my athletes not to skip any type of tempo workout  Tempo runs are very special and this type of workout is the same as running a competition. Every athlete wants to finish on a high level of tone and it makes it very competitive among athletes. The Tempo runs help the athlete to determine their running pace during competitions. Don’t forget to add Tempo runs to your training plan.

Intervals: The last of all is the interval workout for athletes. This is a short-speed workout and it’s mostly done on the track. Interval training is a type of alternating short exercises of high-intensity workouts with longer intervals of rest. For example, you run 800m in 2 minutes and rest for either 3 minutes, 4 minutes, or 5 minutes. Some may run 30 seconds speed and runs or jog for 60 seconds or 90 seconds.

If you are able to inculcate these 3 types in your training plan each week, you will see a lot of changes and be able to run faster in your next event.
