TOP 5 SECRETS TO RUNNING FASTER – HOW TO RUN FASTER – INCREASE YOUR SPEED | Day 5
How to Run Faster and Improve Race Times
- Study the course: Get as much information about the course as you can, so you'll know to pace properly or be prepared mentally for tough sections, like hills. Most races post the course map and often an elevation map on the race website. If you're running a local race, take advantage of your home field advantage and run the course or parts of the course during your training.
- Don't start out too fast: One of the biggest mistakes in racing is starting out too fast in the beginning of the race. The problem is that if you go out too fast, you'll burn through your stored energy too quickly and your muscles will fatigue faster, leaving you feeling tired and depleted toward the end of your race.
- Run the tangents: Even though race courses are measured accurately, many racers run a longer distance (and therefore a slower finish time) by following every curve in the road. A tangent is a straight line that just touches a curve, so the concept of "running the tangents" is to run the shortest distance possible by running straight from one curve to the next.
- Check your form: Every mile or so, check your running form from head to toe, so you can prevent wasting energy as a result of bad form. Look ahead (not down), keep your shoulders relaxed, arms swinging back and forth (not side to side), and your hands gently clenched. Keep your hips under your shoulders and make sure your stride is short, with your feet close to the ground.
- Don't lose time at water stops: Make sure you line up properly at the start, so you don't spend time and energy weaving around slower runners or walkers. At the water stops, if you don't want water, run straight down the middle, so you don't get caught up in traffic. If you want to grab water, don't stop at the first table -- it's always the most crowded. Go to a table towards the end and on the left-hand side, if there are tables on both sides of the street. (Most people are right-handed and naturally go to the tables on the right side.)
- Avoid the need for bathroom stops: Don't waste time stopping at the port-a-potties. Make sure you get to the race start early so you have plenty of time to go before you start running.
