If you’re trying to increase your speed, it’s worth looking at your training programme to make sure it’s tailored to help you get there. Find out how you can do it with MY ASICS.
Setting your goal
The first step is to set your target. It can be anything – going under 3 hours in a marathon, or maybe running your fastest ever 5k.
If you set a training plan with MY ASICS all you need to do is choose your distance, your time and when you want to achieve it by.
It then builds a training plan tailored to what you need to get there.
It can also be a great motivator. There are lots of ways it will help you get there – from emails reminding you of an upcoming run, to detailed stats so you can track your progress.
Sticking to your schedule
Once you have a training plan, one of the hardest things to do is to stick to it.
A good way to provide extra motivation is to include milestones. It helps keep you on track and shows that you’re making progress towards your goal.
Add in some extra exercises
There are plenty of exercises which can help you increase speed.
To go faster you need to increase your stride length or stride frequency – or maybe even both. Exercise like bum kicks, high knee running and pull throughs are great examples of exercises that help you develop these key areas by developing your strength and timing.
So make sure you factor these in to your training. With MY ASICS, you’ll be able to combine them with your training plan to help you reach your goal.
Stay on top of your progress
The only way to know if you’re getting faster is by recording your times. With objective figures laid out in front of you, it’s much easier to analyse your improvement and to make changes to your training if necessary.
With MY ASICS, you can keep all your times in one place and see clearly if you’re getting better. With graphs and analysis of your running performance, you’ll always know how you’re getting on.
Plus, logging extra info like sleep and diet means that your training plan can be more tailored to your needs.
