Running training

Running at the same pace is not enough to get better and, above all, to stay injury-free.

Thanks to my many years of running experience in competitive sports, I know how important it is to keep setting new stimuli – through changes in pace, changes in the scope and length of the run, or the nature of the terrain (flat, mountainous). That is exactly what I do in individual running training. The priorities for this are determined individually.

In addition, the correct running technique is learned during running training. Because this is essential for staying pain-free in the long term and for becoming faster.

Diverse training according to the various training methods

All common methods are taken into account when planning and carrying out running training:

Fat burning training: Runs with light exercise intensity so that mainly fat is used for energy production.

Driving game: During a run the intensity is increased several times, e.g. by increasing the pace or running on inclines.

Speed training: The attempt is made to keep a higher pace for a long time during a continuous run, which is determined in advance.

Interval training: With this running training method, the run is divided into fixed intervals. A certain number of high-intensity exercise intervals (e.g. 3 minutes). After each quick interval there is a recovery phase.

In addition to running units, professional running training also includes specific strength and coordination training.

Running ABC: Why coordination training is so important

Through coordination training, ligaments and joints are stabilized and the running technique is refined. Since the ankle and knee joints in particular are stressed when running, this training helps you to stay injury-free. For example, the risk of kinking on uneven terrain is reduced.

The running ABC has proven itself in practice. These are exercises in which the running motion is exaggerated. By repeating the exercises regularly, these movement patterns are anchored in the subconscious and gradually enable them to be implemented in everyday running practice. The result is an easy, economical running style.

The running ABC will always be part of the training.
