Speed Principles

The general principles for improved speed are as follows:
  • Choose a reasonable goal for your event, and then work on running at velocities which are actually faster than your goal over short work intervals

  • Train at goal pace in order to enhance your neuromuscular coordination, self confidence and stamina at your desired speed

  • At first, utilize long recoveries, but as you get fitter and faster shorten the recovery periods between work intervals to make your training more specific and realistic to racing. Also move on to longer work intervals, as you are able

  • Work on your aerobic capacity and lactate threshold, conduct some easy pace runs to burn calories and permit recovery from the speed sessions

  • Work on your mobility to develop a range of movement (range of motion at your hips will effect speed) and assist in the prevention of injury
