Adventures In Running

Notes from Get-Fit Guy’s Podcast: How To Run Faster

  1. Lose weight
  2. Increase your cadence (more steps per minute). 90 steps per minute is ideal.
  3. Use a treadmill (also allows you to focus on proper running form)
  4. Run hills (allows you to achieve high intensities without as much joint impact)
  5. Plyometrics (once per week). Hopping onto raised surface, explosive jumps.
  6. Consistency (running a minimum of every 48-72 hours)
