Do This for Faster Summer Running

by Neighborhood Trainers Finding a trainer is a personal choice

Ready to lace up your running shoes and beat your personal record this summer? It’s the perfect time to get out – the weather is great, the sun is shining, and the breeze is nice and cool. Performance may have gone down a bit during the winter, but now you can get faster and stronger than ever before. Improve your runs for the summer and beat the goals you set last year.

For a highly efficient workout, find a Westchester personal trainer or a personal training NYC professional near where you live or work. You can also join group exercise classes, but a personal trainer will give you one on one support needed to see results and improved performance. There are also some things you can do on your own to help increase your performance.

Focus on moving your arms. Using strong movements in the arms helps drive you forward and increase momentum. This is most important when swinging them backwards, driving the elbows behind instead of sideways.

Use hills in your training. Hills are a challenge, which is why so many people avoid them. Studies have shown that running up and down hills improves run times, builds strength in the legs, and improves how the lungs function while running. They also provide a solid foundation to jump start your fitness and give you the edge needed to get faster.

Lift weights when training. A lot of runners avoid lifting weights in fear that it will cause them to bulk up and become heavier, diminishing performance. However, adding strength training to your workout can improve your running technique and allow you to run longer distances at a faster pace than you previously could.

Flatten your feet when exercising. You should try to do strength exercises that require the foot to be in contact with the ground. This stability will allow you develop the speed you want, so incorporate squats and deadlifts into your workout routine. Anything that involves extending the knees, hips, and ankles has the ability to improve your speed.

With summer coming, it’s time to get back on your A game. Try to be faster than you were last year by adding some intensity to your summer runs and getting into better shape. By focusing on building up speed, you can get the results you want in a short amount of time. Beat your personal records this summer and make it a season to remember.
