Six sim­ple ways to run fur­ther, faster and in­jury-free

With 2km of a 10K to go Kaitlin Good­man felt strong. Fluid. She picked up speed and flew the last mile to cross the line with a 52-sec­ond PB. So how had she man­aged to do so well?

To make such a break­through you need to ask: What el­e­ments are miss­ing from your train­ing? What bad habits have you let sneak in? For Good­man the se­cret was miles. Al­though fo­cused on the 10K she had also trained for a marathon and so she was run­ning more miles than ever. It was un­charted ter­ri­tory, but the pay­off was huge.

But mileage is only part of the jig­saw, just one of sev­eral key strate­gies you can fo­cus on to forge a break­through. Over the fol­low­ing pages we’ll show you five oth­ers and help you iden­tify which – or which com­bi­na­tion of them – will bring you the great­est re­wards.
