get fit and mean it logo-newHow is your training going? The weather is finally picking up and everything is easier with more sun.

Try and focus on training outside now and forget about the treadmill for a while. It is great for cadence work but can put a strain on your Achilles.

A great way to break the routine of your training is to include some drills and run troughs in each of your work outs. Pick 3 good drills online and do them over 20m with a walk back. Focus on posture, contact on the ground, feet speed and arm position. Repeat those 3 drills at 3 occasions, then run 5 x 50m where you will focus on accelerating the foot speed and the overall speed. Jog back easy at walking pace. This will help you work on technique, posture, cadence and variety.

Don’t forget to think about recovery. A good way to recover from training is to use Cabot Health’s Glutamine powder and also their Magnesium Complete tablets. If you are not sure what you are doing and need some help, maybe it is time to talk to a professional coach.

We have plenty of coaches who can help you with this.
