A RUNNING RESOLUTIONS (you can actually stick to) & you will be #fasterforit

As we all tend to be inundated with what everybody else’s resolutions are, Personal Bests that are going to be smashed, diet plans – it’s so easy to get lost in all of this. Whilst Resolutions are a great way to enforce positive change on your life, stick to your plan and don’t get caught up in anybody else’s.

The reality is most people’s training plans, diet plans and fads won’t last passed February. It’s not about drastic change, it’s about progressive, simple change that doesn’t impact too much with the day-to-day.

Here are ours for a healthier, faster and progressive 2018.

IF YOU FOCUS ON ONE THING, FOCUS ON THE WARM UP. This is honestly THE most important thing you can do before your run. This isn’t just a bit of stretching you do and then run. This is the opportunity for your brain to remember rhythm, reaction, speed and effective coordination. It’s where you’re able to fire up your glutes to work properly.

Running is essentially muscle memory, the more you are able to practise rhythm and speed as a regular routine, the easier it will be to actually change your pace and go fast.

ADD THESE INTO YOUR WARM UP:

  • 10 squats – coming up slowly for 5 seconds and really thinking about those glutes
  • Fast feet for those that have been to our classes, this is a great one to get you warmed up and your body used to moving quickly. On the spot, move your feet as quickly as you can fore 15 seconds, 10 seconds off – repeat 3 times
  • High Knees – these shouldn’t be done really quickly. Activate your core before you start, everything tall and push off the ground – knees high for 10m. Remember to dorsiflex your feet up so you land properly (keep your toes up in your trainers, it will make you do this)
