5 Best Training-plan Tips

Night Run’s Weekly Running Tips: Week 3



1. Use taper tactics

In the week before full or half marathons, do runs of no more than 20min.


2. Relax before tough sessions

In tests, runners who were tired mentally reached ‘perceived exhaustion’ two minutes before their chilled-out rivals.


3. Maximise your movement

–Agility drills significantly improve your sprinting ability, standing long jump and vertical leap, which all lead to improved fitness.


4. Head for the hills

–Altitude training, even at moderate altitudes, can significantly improve athletic performance.


5. Spin after work

Your evening pedal power is 8% higher than in the morning, which means better fat-burning.
