HOW TO RUN FASTER
USE THESE TIPS TO GET YOUR NEXT
Alternate between short bursts of sprints with slower recovery jogs to increase your stamina and speed. Try running the straights on a track, then recover at a slower pace on the curves.
If you want to run a faster 5k, add more distance to your training. If your body can handle 5 miles, it will run 3.1 miles even faster!
Hill runs strengthen the posterior chain, which is what moves you forward. Find a hill, run to the top, then make your way back down and repeat.
Add resistance training to specifically work your legs, glutes, and core. Stronger muscles will keep you running farther and faster!
Plyometric exercises target fast twitch muscles - and fast twitch muscles are what make you run FAST!
CHECK YOUR POSTURE
Poor running technique can slow you down. Check your posture, foot strike, and arm movements for max speed.
STRETCH, REST, & STAY CONSISTENT
Stretch daily and plan rest days to prevent injury and setbacks. Stay consistent in your training and you'll get there!
