Endurance pace is another key element of running. This is how fast you can run without getting exhausted. This pace is important for building endurance and allowing you to run longer. Do not hesitate to run slowly. Running fast during training does not guarantee optimal performance during competitions, quite the contrary.
The maximum aerobic speed is an important element. It's the maximum speed you can run for a given period of time, usually 3-8 minutes. To improve your MAS, you need to include specific workouts in your program, like high-intensity intervals. This MAS determines all your training speeds (especially your endurance speed) and competition speeds.
General physical preparation consists of performing muscle strengthening, coordination and balance exercises to improve the quality of your running practice. In particular, it helps prevent injuries by strengthening muscles and improving joint stability. The GPP must be adapted according to your level, your objectives and your needs.
Finally, the specific pace is the pace at which you want to run during a goal race. For example, if you are preparing for a half-marathon, you must train your body to run at the specific pace of this half-marathon. This means that you must include training sessions at this specific pace in your training program.
Running is a physical activity that benefits the body and mind. By following these principles, you can improve your fitness and achieve your running goals.
