With another lockdown worldwide coinciding with the beginning of 2021, I’ve begun to see more and more new-years resolutioners returning to the roads, after a hiatus of more than a few months. Running is a fantastic form of exercise for just about everyone. The only problem is, the general public are poorly informed when it comes to how to program and progress their training. Typically, they’ll head straight out on the road and begin running again, looking to best their time or distance each day they do so. Though it’s fantastic practice to get competitive with yourself and focus on beating the person you were yesterday, this poses a number of problems that I see again and again in the general population.
This 6-week periodised running program, includes weekly, home-based, running-specific strength and conditioning sessions, as well as a graded weekly progression in terms of running volume. Perfect for the casual distance runner, that wants to improve their performance and avoid injury.
