Speed-Form Training

by Amby Burfoot

Speed drills can improve your running form, making you faster and more efficient

By Jennifer Files

Mercury News

Technology can't make a runner faster -- nothing does that except the discipline to put in miles on the track or trails.

But by strapping on the right piece of high-tech gear, a runner can track her progress and keep workouts varied and challenging.

The Daily News

Get in shape for stress of running regimen

By Mark Higginbotham

March 10, 2003

Just as infants must crawl before they walk, those who would be runners must walk before they run.

Until the muscles, tendons and joints are "ready," the pounding of running may make your introduction to the sport an undesirable experience.

Besides doing the proper advance work, other factors influence whether and how much individuals should run.

How to strike and sustain VO2max gold, and other benefits of high-quality workouts

by Owen Anderson

Cyclists, swimmers, rowers, cross-country skiers, orienteers, triathletes and runners all engage in interval training in order to increase the amount of time they spend exercising at very high intensities. A runner scampering along without stopping at his/her current best 10k velocity might be able to sustain the pace for only 25 minutes-or-so during a workout; by breaking the effort down into eight-minute intervals, however, the same runner could often work at 10k velocity for a total of 32 minutes (four eight-minute intervals), thus boosting the 'quality' of the session (the time spent above lactate-threshold velocity) by 28%.

After months of saying, "I'm really going to start running or biking next year," next year is finally here.

Talking about making a change and actually doing it are two different things. That's why it helps to have a fitness goal to keep you motivated even on the days when sitting in front of the TV sounds a lot better than hitting the walking trail.
