RUNNERS HIGH TRAINING PROGRAM

Our Runners High program is designed to make you a better runner, no matter where you are in your running journey. We have taken 4 major components that help every runner succeed (speed, endurance, strength, and stamina), and designed a program that eliminates all the guess work.

 
There is no question” if” you’ll be a better runner - you WILL become a better runner!

INTERVALS

Interval training is intense running for a set duration of time with a timed rest in between each run.  The pace should be a challenge, because you are only maintaining for a short period of time.

Example: On treadmill: 30 sec sprint/ 15 sec rest x12

Benefit:  Builds your overall speed

HILLS

Hill training is resistance running for your lower body 


Example: On the treadmill 8.0 speed with 3.0 incline


Benefit: Improves your strength and helps quickens your stride

PROGRESSIVE

A run where you continuously increase your speed for an entire run 


Example: (25 min run breakdown) 15 min casual pace, then increase your speed every two minutes until the last 2 minutes is your fastest.


Benefit: Builds speed endurance

FARTLEK

Fartlek training is periods of fast running mixed with periods of slower running. For some people this could be a mix of jogging and sprinting, but for beginners it could be walking with jogging sections added in when possible. 

Example: 20 min run (10 min moderate, 2 min hard run, 3 min jog, 2 min moderate hard, 1 min jog, 2 min hard run.
