Régis shares with you the 6 golden rules to progress in running :

Running is a popular sport activity that can be practiced by everyone, whether you are a beginner or an experienced person. However, to progress in running, it is important to respect a few fundamental principles. Among them, rest, progressiveness, endurance pace, MAS, GPP and specific pace are key elements to take into account.

1. Rest

First of all, rest is essential to progress in running. It is important to plan recovery periods to allow your body to rest and regenerate. This means listening to your body and not being shy about taking rest, this will help you avoid injuries, which can happen if you don't give your body time to recover between workouts.

2. Progressivity

Then, to succeed in running, it is essential to be progressive during your training. Do not want to do too much at once, especially if you are a beginner. Start with short distances and gradually increase your training volume (training time, training distance and number of split sets). This will allow your body to gradually adapt to the effort and avoid injury.

3. Endurance pace

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.

4. The MAS

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.

5. GPP

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.

6. specific gait

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.
